You have three major system in your car that need to be working. The mechanical system for example did a timing belt break? The ignition system, are you getting spark? and the fuel system are you getting fuel pressure and is it enough? are the injectors being opened by the computer?
Test for these things and you will be started in the right direction.

Can I bypass the crank sensor on a 1997 Automatic Honda Accord?


They both have crank sensors. crank sensor is the same as RPM sensor. Both cars need rpm signal. You could compare the inputs and match differences...but BYPASSING or skipping isnt ever a good idea. The 97 if I recall required crank and tdc. the 93 simply had a distributor reluctor generating both,.
WHat I recommend is you dont mix and match engines that arent compatible or change the incompatible pieces. Life is much easier both at 1st start and in the future when it needs repair.
However, you can get the crank/rpm signal from the 93 distributor, move it to the same wires ast he 97 lists, and it MAY fire. Youll still have to deal with cam and TDC, and all sorts of other incompatioble parts.. the 93 5 speed ECM should still work fine, so its a 5 speed? the engine doesnt care. Was t just not cranking because of the clutch switch input you now didnt have? You could jumper those pins (blue n black?) and bypass that. At least then all your ECM inputs are correct and in the right pins. That seems alot easier than mixing and matching year parts.

Why wont my 96 honda accord go into reverse it is a stick shift


With the engine off, can you put it in reverse? Can you put the clutch in and keep it in reverse, then start it, and it moves back? If you can, but can't get it into reverse again with the engine running, either the clutch isn't adjusted properly, or the clutch has oil on it and is dragging. Reverse has no syncro's, those are the things in the transmission that help it shift. All the forward gears have syncro's so they can kind of tolerate when the clutch isn't right, they will still go into gear. But reverse needs the clutch to work properly.

96 f 150 f0rd starts when cold but not after it warms up


Doesn't want to turn over, or doesnt want to run even though it turns over? If it turns over but just wont "catch", then you most likely have a problem with your anti bleed back valve in you fuel injection system. The system isn't holding the proper fuel pressure for a warm start.

I have a 96 pontiac grand am that doesnt start all the time


Starting Problem # 1: Engine Won't Crank At All

Scenario: You turn the key, but nothing happens: And by nothing, we mean there is no dash light, no sound, nada. The first thing you should do in this case is to pop the hood and check the battery. Either the battery is completely dead or there's a wiring problem in the starting system. Try jump-starting the battery. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to call for assistance.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a rapid clicking sound, and the dash lights dim. This is your classic low-battery symptom. Jump-starting the battery should get the engine to start.However, if you keep experiencing this problem, you could have a bad battery or alternator, or it could be some­thing as simple as a loose alternator belt. Take your car to a mechanic just as soon as you can.

Scenario: When you turn the key, the lights on the dash come on, but you don't hear anything. Make sure you have the shift selector all the way in park. Move it out of park and then back, or try starting it with the shifter in neutral. If your car has a manual transmission, make sure you have the clutch pressed all the way to the floor. If that doesn't help, you can try jump-starting the battery, but it probably won't work. There's a good chance your car has a bad starter or a problem in the starting circuit. That could mean a prob­lem in the ignition switch, neutral safety switch or starter sole­noid.

Scenario: The dash lights come on when you turn the key, and then go right out, and the engine doesn't crank when you turn the key to start, But, the lights slowly come back on when you release the key. This is another classic: the bad battery connection. When you turn the key to start, the starter pulls so much current that it breaks the connection. Then, when you release the key, the connection slowly comes back. The connection provides enough power to turn the dash lights on, but not enough to crank the starter. Cleaning and tightening the battery terminals may fix this prob­lem.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a single, hard clunk. Turn the headlights on and try again. Do the lights dim slightly when you turn the key? If so, you probably have a bad starter or a seized engine. If the headlights don't dim at all, or just barely dim, there may be a connection problem between the starter solenoid and the starter itself.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a loud, scraping or grinding sound like metal on metal. The starter drive is bad, or the ring gear on the flywheel damaged, or both. You may get the starter to engage if you try turning the key a couple of times, but let go of the key right away if you hear the noise again. If the car does start, you should drive it right over to local repair shop and have the problem fixed.

Starting Problem #2: Engine Cranks but It Won't Start

Scenario: The engine seems to crank normally, but the engine doesn't even sound as if it's trying to start. Is there gas in the tank? Gas gauges are notoriously inaccurate. If you have to move your head to one side to get the needle to move off empty, try adding some gas to the tank.

Scenario: When you first turn the key on, you don't hear the fuel pump run. In cars with electronic fuel injection, you should hear a light hum a few seconds from around the fuel tank. That's the electric fuel pump running. If you don't hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds when you first turn the key on, try cranking the engine until the oil light goes out. That may start the pump running and allow the engine to start.

Scenario: The engine cranks normally, and it sounds like it wants to start, but it won't. You may have flooded the engine. Hold the gas floor and try again. (Let the gas pedal up when it finally starts). If it's raining out, the ignition system may be wet.

Scenario: The engine cranks unevenly in a repetitive-sounding pattern. You may have a bad timing chain or timing belt. Call a tow truck and have it towed to the repair shop.


Starting Problem # 3: Engine Starts but It Shuts Off

Scenario: The engine starts right up, but shuts off as soon as you release the key. This is the classic symptom of a bad ignition switch. A new switch should fix it.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but when you put the transmission in gear, the car lurches and the engine shuts off. The converter clutch in the transmission torque converter probably is engaging when it shouldn't. On some cars, you can bypass this by disconnecting the torque converter clutch solenoid; but unless you know which wire to pull, forget about it. Call for assistance.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but seems to idle slowly and stalls when you come to a stop. This probably is a fast idle problem. When the engine is cold, it's supposed to idle a little faster than normal to keep the engine running. You may be able to drive using two feet until the engine warms up: one on the gas to hold the idle up a little and the other for the brake. However, don't keep driving it this way. Take your car to your repair shop just as soon as you

1995 gmc serria will not start no click from starter, manual trans


replace the starter. Being a manual transmission you should be able to pop the clutch to get it going till you replace the starter. If you don't know how to pop the clutch follow these steps. That way you can still drive the car. When need to.
  1. Get inside the vehicle and depress the clutch to shift the car into "Neutral." Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "On" position. This is the place the key would be after a normal turn of the ignition switch for starting. Instead, with a clutch pop, the ignition will already need to be on so that when the engine is turned over, the key is in the On position.

  2. Move the car in position to be pushed from behind or sent down a slope for the starting procedure. Check to see that the brakes will work when pressed and how hard the steering wheel will need to be turned before the vehicle is started. Power steering and brakes will make both systems work poorly until the vehicle is started.
  3. 3 Sitting inside the driver's seat with the clutch depressed, put the shifter into first gear. Keep your foot depressed onto the clutch and the brake pedal without depressing the brake pedal. Roll down the window and signal to your helper to push. As the car rolls, you will steer toward any slope that will assist the helper in getting the car down the street. Allow the momentum of the vehicle to increase to constant motion.
  4. 4 Release the clutch quickly and be prepared to throttle the gas pedal as the engine is turned over by the motion of the vehicle. When in gear, the engine will be forced to crank and the ignition will send a spark for a start. The quicker the vehicle is going before the clutch is released will determine how many times the engine will turn over. More cranks equal more opportunities to ignite the gas and air for combustion and the engine to start without a battery or starter

Need to know how to set the timing on a 1990 honda accord ex


Pop out the spark plug in number 1 cylinder. Drop a long 1/4" drive extension in the cylinder. Turn the crankshaft until the timing mark on the crank pulley meets "0" and the extension is at it's highest point of travel. This is your correct crank position for timing. Pop the cover off and find the indentation or arrow on the outside front of the cam sprocket and align it with the corresponding mark on the head or cam cap. If you're only talking about using a timing light, then lossen the distributor bolt at it's base and turn the distributor until the mark is at 0. Engine must be at normal operating temp.

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

96 STARTING PROBLEMS


The 1st thing to do is check the fuel pressure when it won't start, the cranking circuit may not be turning on the fuel pump, the run and crank are 2 separate circuits in all electric fuel pumps, so the ignition switch could be an issue here, but check the pressure while cranking during a no start, then let me know what you find.
