Hyundai Elanta still wont start!!!!!!

We set the timing like you said she is getting petrol and has spark but still wont start. Motor sounds like she's just turning, no back firing or anything, to suggest that the timing is out, would a match in the petrol tank help. lol

2.4 pt cruiser wont try to crank even with starting fluid its got good firing on all cylinders good suction at intake and fuel pumps getting fuel to motor have no way to tell how strong the fuel press

If a volatile starting fluid, typically ether, won't make it fire or even sound like it is trying to fire the problem is likely to be with the spark though if attempting to start continuously for some time hasn't caused the smell of petrol about the place and caused the spark plugs to show signs of wetness there probably isn't any injection taking place either.

In the absence of both spark and injection it could be an immobiliser problem or it could be one or both of the positional sensors (crankshaft or camshaft) or the connections or wiring or the ECU that has failed.
A code read might help.

I suggest spending some time checking the fuses first and then carry out a thorough visual inspection of all the associated pipes, wires and cables before moving on to a more in depth diagnosis.

Good luck!

AWESOME a real camaro problem.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

Ford maverick 1993 petrol wont start its getting petrol and good spark but just wont fire up anyone can help me?

Is the timing correct? Is the battery turning the starter over fast enough? Did you check the plugs with the spark checker tool that goes in between wire and plug? If so the plugs may be bad not giving the spark actually inside the cylinder.

Onece in a while turn over wont fire. runs great other wise

your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

Start up Problems of my 1989 Golf GL

After sitting for a long time my Honda has a hard time starting. I have forun that it isn't a ignition problem rather a compression problem. Try about a tablespoon of 10w30 down the spark plug holes. turn the motor over then replace the plugs.

There are two things to check.
1. It is producing a spark.
2. It is getting petrol through.
To check whether is producing a spark.
Remove one spark plug from engine. Reconnect HT lead and hold it touching car chassis and turn the engine. Do no hold the Ht lead with bare hands while doing this as it carries thousand of volts and will give you nasty shock. Hold it with some insulted material .
When you turn the engine you see spark across the plug electrodes.
As for fuel, trace the fuel pipe coming into the carbureter and disconnect pipe and have someone turn engine .Petrol should gush out showing that the petrol pump is working.
