Might be the spider (fuel injector) located in the intake manifold that can cause that or may be firing order totally out.

Hyundai excel 1997 wont start


Recheck your work,don't guess or assume anything

Any parts or wires that came off, may not be back where
they need to be

Otherwise you check for crank signal,injector pulse,fuel
pressure,spark,the usual players

First check to see if you have spark at the sparkplug then if you have spark check your fuel pressure it should be between 44-54 psi with key on engine off also ,check fuel filter for restriction.If pressure is below 39 psi then replace fuel pump.But if you don't have spark at the plug then there is a ignition problem.

Check the fuel pump wiring under the car. If the connectors are exposed to the elements they could be corroded or dirty causing intermittent problems. It could also be the ignition switch. One other thought. Some gm cars have the oil pressure switch tied in t the fuel pump, so the fuel pump shuts off in case of loss of oil pressure. Sometimes the oil pressure switch will cause problems with the fuel pump not working. You could check this out by using a jumper wire in the oil pressure switch connector to bypass the switch to see if there is any change in the fuel pump problem.

Check fuel filter, fuel pump pressure, try putting a little gas in the intake manifold, if it starts adn stays running, the fuel pump is not putting out enough presure to open the injectors to start.

1997 Geo Prizm - does not start


sounds liike a fuel problem, turn key on without starting listen for fuel pump kicking on if it does now check the connections at the pump/fuse if it is kicking on the you can check the fuel pressure by checking the little valve on the fuel rail next to the intake looks just like the air valve on your tires if there is no pressure then check fuel filter.

first, check all the fuses
did you check to see if there's spark at spark plugs?
did you check the fuel pressure? you need to do that to isolate fuel and ignition system.
if there is no fuel then check for fuel pump operation
if there is no spark then check the ignition system (coil, module and wirings)
if you don't have either one then the problem is in the computer system such as crank sensor, and computer itself

Could be fuel pump, is the pump running when you turn key on, you should be able to hear it. You are likely going to have to take it to someone with a pressure gauge to make sure it is getting proper fuel pressure. Fuel pumps commonly go on these vehicles

My 1997 saturn tuns over but wont start . i have tested every sensor and they are good.


Pull all 4 spark plug wires off at the coils,have someone crank your engine.You should see spark jumping between all 4 coils.If not you probally have a bad crank position sensor failed.If not that Ignition control You can check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail if you have a fuel pressure tester,might check the Inj. fuse located in the underhood fuse block.Hope this helps.Also You may try to push accelerator pedal all the floor this will put the engine in clear flood mode in case it's flooded.
