Car turn over wont crank


what you mean is the car turns over won`t fire/start. you need to find out if you are missing fuel or spark. check for codes. if you have no fuel it maybe a pump or plugged fuel filter. if you have no spark then it could be many things. like crank/cam sensor, poor wiring or connections, poor plugs, wires, ignition coil, even possibly a computer. check the first 3 things and go from there.

Car That Turns Over But Won't Start problem?


There are many possibilities for this problem. But are some are very common for this problem.
1) Check out there is enough gas in your car.
2) Check the charge of the battery. It should be exact 12 volts. if the charge is low the engine will crank but won’t start.
3) Get it confirmed that there is fuel in car and fuel pump is also turning on
4) To check whether fuel pump is turning on or not try this procedure.Insert the key in the ignition, then turn the key to the ON position, and listen carefully from the back seat side you will here an electric noise for about 1 second every time you cycle the key on/off. If you hear nothing then your fuel pump is faulty or not receiving any power. In this case the fuel pump needs replacement.
5)But if fuels pump check out ok.then continues towards engine for finding fault. Check where engine is receiving the gas. Many times clogged fuel filter or blocked fuel injectors don’t let gas to flow towards the engine.
6) If the gas flow is proper towards the engine. Then route towards the spark plugs.
7)Check whether you get spark while you crack the engine. if no spark then it’s the problem in the spark plugs.
8) The spark plugs receive power from coil pack. If the coil pack is having proper voltage the fault in spark plugs is confirmed. But if the coils pack has low voltage then its time to replace the coil pack.

This will help. Thanks.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara i just replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now the vehicle does'nt start it cranks but does'nt it has fuel but its nnot


no engine stated, and is an engine question.
G16,J20, or H25?
1.6l, 2.0L or v6 ?
my guess, is you removed spark plug wires and put them back out of order, never do that, always change wires 1 by 1.
or the firing order will be wrong, (cops excepted, coil over plug)

how many coil packs do you have.
1
2
4
6?
we cant guess any of that.

1992 mx-3 v6 won't start. will hit sparaticly as if about to start but just won't catch. checked crank pos. sensor. need suggestions on how to proceed.


Check for a blue snapping spark on 2 or 3 plug wires(or all of them). If you get good spark, then ignition is likely not the problem. A weak or sporadic spark could be a bad coil or coil pack, or a bad ignition module (the ignitor).Check the coils with a volt-ohmmeter per the specs for your car. The ignitor can be tested at a parts store.
If spark is good, check fuel filter, fuel pressure, check timing marks on crank pulley and cam marks, Try a little starting fluid in the air intake and see if it runs for a moment. If so, then it's likely a fuel delivery problem. If no change, then it's likely an ignition circuit problem.
Good luck.

1995 Pontiac Grand Am won't start


is it poss the engine is flooded with fuel? if you can remove the spark plugs see how wet they are. If wet, replace turn engine over while they are out remove fuel pump fuse and coil pack conector b4 you do this if unable to do this hold the gas pedal down all the way to the floor your vehicle is fuel injected this will create a fuel shut off mode which while held down will not deliver any fuel to the engine as the engine starts to fire and run rough take you foot of the pedal ane nurse it until it runs ok if it runs get your mechanic to check for leaking injectors dripping over night

Audi 100s 1993 cranks doesn,t start, turns over no start. when it starts runs rough and stalls.


could very well be a faulty sensor, leaky vaccum hose, bad coil packs, needing of new fuel filter, spark plugs, wires.

Have you checked your fuel pressure to make sure it is good. You can do this with fuel pressure tester on the fuel rail.

Also check every cylinder for spark
If you don't have any spark, or very weak spark, you could have bad coil pack, module, or crank sensor.

You can remove one plug at a time, and place it back on plug wire, place it on top of engine block, have someone else turn motor over well you observe to see if there is spark.

Do you have a service or check engine light on? If so, I would have the engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem area.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further help

No start


Usually is the crank sensor. If you need to be sure, you should have 5V signal wire, ground wire, and a 5V supply wire. Make sure you have 5V, and ground. If you do, replace the sensor.
