1991 F150 Will not crank.


Do real fuel pressure test using test gauge. You changed ignition module but not coil? Are you getting nice fat blue spark? When spraying starter fluid into intake it only tries to start which makes me think you have ignition problem.

Wont start turns over but wont start


it could be many things, but make sure you have fuel and spark. if you have good spark and can not tell if its getting fuel. just spray starting fluid in intake or the throttle body just open throttle plate and give it a couple of squirts of fluid.and if it starts then quits its a fuel problem. if no fuel, check and see if fuel pump is running.check the fuel pump fuse and relay first! to check fuel pump, place hand on bottom of fuel tank, then turn key to on. if it is working you will feel the vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times. for the pump only runs for about 2-3 seconds to build up pressure in the line. but when its running its on all the time. if pump is ok. go to fuel filter to see if its plugged up.then go from there. hope this helps you ! good-day !

Car wont start


Does it have spark at the spark plugs. If it has spark is it getting gas. Try spraying a little starting fluid in it, does it try to start? Then it isn't getting fuel. Is the fuel pump running when the ignition is first turned on? Fuel pump relay, fuse, fuel pump itself. Just telling you some things to check so people can give a better informed answer.

Won't start. I've replaced the fuel filter, the spark plugs, wires, and ignition coils. Will run off of starting fluid, but not by itself. Checked fuel pressure and it's coming up around 40. What else...


SOUND LIKE FAULTY FUEL PUMP OR BAD PUMP RELAY. IF YOU SPRAY STARTER FLUID AND VECHICLE RUNS.ITS NOT GETTING FUEL..NEXT TIME ENGINE STALL OUT.GET A FUEL PRESSURE READING.DONT TURN ON THE IGNITION .IF FUEL PRESSURE READS ZERO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE FAULTY FUEL PUMP RELAY OR FUEL PUMP RELAY FAULTY.

Turns over but wont start like its getting no gas


A car engine needs 3 things to start. 1. compression 2. a spark 3. fuel Assuming your engine is ok, you've lost either spark or fuel. Get a can of starting fluid and spray into the throttle body. try to start. if it starts, you're problem is fuel related (clogged filter,fuel pump,relay etc) if it still doesn't start, you've got no spark (coil,module,wiring harness,computer)

1995 CRYSLER LHS,WONT START AT ALL,TRIED CHANGING SENSORS,FEUL PUMP,COIL PACKS AND COMPUTER BOXES,JUST WONT START?ANY IDEA?


If it is cranking with out turning over I would check the fuel pump and ignition relay, crank and cam sensors.
Basically you need to figure out if you have a spark issue or a fuel issue. (as long as you didn't have a serious overheating problem). One way to help you figure this out is by spraying in some starting fluid while cranking the engine. If it starts you have a fuel problem, if nothing then you have a spark problem (assuming you didn't blow the head gasket from overheating and was running normally before this happened).
Based on what you've already done here are my recommendations:
No spark: check ignition relay
No fuel: check fuel pump relay (aka shutoff relay, aka fuel pump shutoff relay), crank and cam position sensors, fuel filter.
There is also one other possibility, that the timing belt snapped. You would need to remove the timing cover to check this.

Have spark,no fire,sprayed starter fluid into throtle body but does not start


Turn key forward listen for the fuel pump to pressurize if you don't here anything then your fuel pump needs replaced and it's in the tank.
