Sounds like your timing is out, check your cambelt hasn't snapped first, if it looks ok look to see if the belt tensioner is ok and hasn't collapsed causing the belt to slip. also if the engine is spinning over really quick you'll want to do a compression test on each cylinder.

Why is my 2003 Jeep Liberty- Starter turning, but eng won't start (intermittent problem)?


you didnt stated the symptoms correctly

it either cranks or it does not.
that means the starter ACTUALLY turns the cranks shaft over
robustly.
the crank shaft damper pulley is the clue to this , it turns or not.
if it always turns this is a :
cranks ok but wont start.
so, that means tune up the engine,
1: low battery voltage (slow cranks)
2: never tuned up this decade?.
3: bad fuel.
4: weak spark at any of the spark plugs, sure all must be good.
5: flooding, (wet spark tips)
6: fuel starvation.
7: any of 50 other engine mech. issues,(burned valves, is 1)

Enging cranks but no start, has spark and gas


Your engine is flooded with fuel. Check your throttle body if it's a fuel injected engine. Clean it. Remove spark plug, let it dry or replace with new ones.Try flooring your acc pedal and start. If it starts, you need to get the carb serviced. For fuel injected, you need to service/ repair/replace your throttle body, fuel injectors, idle air control valves and EGR.

I have 85 rx7 12a engine carb getting spark and fuel,it will turn but it won't start what could it be.


It takes 3 things for a car to run... spark, fuel, and air. Sounds like you should be looking for a problem with the air, IF it is getting spark and fuel. Food for thought.

Car not starting, oil in spark plugs. changed valve cover gasket and spark plug seals. still cant get the car to start. starter is turning engine turns over and getting spark. i can smell fuel coming from...


If you smell fuel in the exhaust the vehicle is flooding or there is no spark. If it is a carb engine, make sure that the choke is in and hold you foot flat on the pedal while trying to start, this will clear any flooding.

1989 Ford Escort 1.9 TBI turns over but won't start. It is getting spark and plenty of gas. Timing belt is tight and did not jump time.


open the oil fill cap look inside (the hole in the valve cover ), is the camshaft turning? if not the cogs are stripped off the timing belt belt
note:i believe this engine is an interfearence engine. meaning when the cogs strip off the belt or it breaks, the valves can and usually do

Extended starting time


Sounds like an ignition problem..
The Direct Ignition module in the turbo model can fail but is easily tested and replaced.

Remove turn the , Direct Ignition module put the spark plugs in the holes, ground each plug to the negative battery terminal by use of a wire about 2 feet long and stripped at each plug. Crank over the engine over watching the spark plugs. If there is a problem with the cassette, one of the plugs will have no spark or a very weak spark. Also, when you turn the ignition key off there should be a shower of sparks that runs all of the plugs simultaneously several times.
DANGER BE CAREFUL ! ! ! EXTREMELY HIGH VOLTAGE! There have been occasions when the Direct Ignition module would test ok when turned upside down but would fail when turned back over to install into the valve cover ?
Also: Oil leakage from the individual coils of the Direct Ignition module have also been a problem. Oil leaks can be identified by noting that there is oil surrounding spark plug hole.
Hope this helps.
Cheers MMP
