Try spraying some wd-40 on the wires where there is moisture present.meaning all electrical connections.it displaces moisture.after this it may run a little rough until fully dry.

I replaced starter on 1989 f150 5.0 now have no spark


Mike, Check for diagnostic codes. Check fuses/relays,wires/plugs for pinched,damage or corrosion. Could be a lot of things like distributor armature, cap, rotor, stator, ICM, coil,spark plugs,wires, make sure ground is good to distributor. Use the attached forum links,instruction, guides to help diagnose ignition spark problems, Good luck

I have a 2000 gmc Sierra 3/4 ton 4x4 k series I have no spark to my spark plugs I have changed the crank sensor an the ignition module not sure what else I can try I'm thinking maybe the ignition coil


Check to see if you are getting spark from the coil to the distributor. I suppose the engine is a 5.7 liter?If not getting spark to the cap, then check for power and ground pulse at the coil.If there is spark at the cap, replace the ignition rotor. If there is no power or ground pulse at the coil,check to see if the ignition rotor is spinning when the starter is engaged. If the distributor is not spinning while cranking the engine there are several more things you'll need to check,i.e.,distributor gear and pin as well as oil pump if the pin or gear are damaged.

Saturn won't start it cranks but won't turn over. There is no fire between the coil paks and spark plugs but can't figure out why


Someone would need to check for power and ground at the coils and that the timing belt is ok.

Replaced cps,distributer(cap,rotor,cam position sensor)checked coil good still no spark,replaced coil wire and plugs is the computer next?ignition control module is in the pcm i think


If the check engine light does NOT come on when cranking at the times when it won't start, then your ECU is in need of repair. The engine will only start after the check engine light comes on and the ecu is what controls that. It's likely going bad, causing the delayed start problem typical of early 90's jeeps. Repair or replacement services for your jeep ECU are available on ebay.

1997 Saab 900 SE Turbo. Problem repeats. Car is off the road. Had started up just fine, several days in a row, now it turns over just fine but does not start. Can hear the fuel pump pressurize. HAd done...


start with the basics: an engine with no internal problems (like timing belt broke, or valve train not timed) needs fuel and spark to start.Since your getting fuel up to the fuel rail to feed the injectors, lets assume for the moment that the injectors are working to put gas into the cyllinder (You coud check that by pulling a plug or two out and see if they are wet or smell of gas.) Then check for spark (Hold the metal tip of plug wire 1/4 inch from a metal bolt or ground on the engine. Careful you don't get a shock-you can also buy a spark checker for a few bucks. just put the plug wire on it and ground it with the clip. Then you won't get a shock.) If you see that it is getting spark, then you may need an expert diagnosis for why it won't run. If you do not detect any spark (might want to try more than one plug wire) then you need to diagnose your ignition. If your car has a distributor, take off the cap and check inside for a cracked dist. cap or bad or worn rotor. You may also have a bad ignition coil or ignition module (expensive, but not as expensive as a bad engine control computer. Distributorless ignition? Again, may be a bad coil, coil pack, or ignition module. good luck, i'm about out of suggestions.

Van will not start I have fuel pressure and when cranking it builds oil pressure where do i go from here


Check for spark at the spark plugs. If no spark, remove distributor cap and inspect the inside of the cap and the rotor for obvious signs of wear or damage. Check for spark at the coil wire by removing the coil wire from the center of the distibutor cap, and, holding the end of it close to the engine block, have someone crank the engine. There should be a very strong spark. If there was spark at the coil but not at the plugs, replace the distributor cap and rotor. If there is no spark at the coil, you either have no power or ground at the coil, or the coil is bad. With the ignition ON, there should be 12v at the red wire for the ignition coil. if not, check the fuses. Check for the pulsing ground signal of the ignition coil at the other wire ( I think a white wire) using a test light clipped to battery + while the engine is being cranked. If there is no light, the problem is likely the ignition module or pick-up coil, which is located in the distributor. Make sure that the wiring and connections are in good shape for these items before condemning them.
Pick-up coil should have about 1500 ω of resistance.
Good Luck

Engine turns over but won't start 2001 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 6cyl


Start with the control module,I think it is located under coil on this model,You have checked the rotor to see if it is turning haven`t you?If it is not you may need a timing chain.

I think that the coil packs has installed wrong because you said that the problem started when you replaced them... so i think you should re-install.
