Car stalled out and died. Cranks, but wont start all of the sudden.


On an incline that you stopped on, dont under estimate that if your low on fuel it may not be picked up by the fuel pump, or your fuel pump may have went out. If you run low on fuel often or up & down hill on low fuel will cause your fuel pump to burn out premature, they even say not to run less than a qrtr tank to be safe, but todays cost in fuel usually people wait till the last minute (gallon) which puts a strain on the fuel pump as the gas cools the motor and incline and decline in roads will mimic a low tank. What doesnt make sence is you sprayed starting fluid which should have fired for a few seconds, which brings you to spark issues, check you coil pack plugs and wires, most likely coil pack over plug and wires should still fire even if a plug or wire goes bad, but the coil pack controls the power going to the wire then plugs.

Hi, i have a 1991 isuzu rodeo with a 3.1 v6 5sp 4x4 with tbi. It starts ok when its cold and seems to run just fine however once its warmed up if you shut it down it wont restart. this was a sudden thing....


You might want to check the coil after the engine has wormed up to see if it is breaking down and not fireing the spark plugs. Use an in line spark tester to check between the coil and the spark plug wires to see if it is firing the plugs after the engine has gotten worm. Have someone to turn the engine over while you watch the tester for fire. Hope this will help you.

I would check the control module. Some parts stores can test them. The control module controls when the plugs fire. Usually mounted under the coil packs.

Bmw 525i 2002 non start,no spark,no pulse at coil,code


If your getting no fire at the coil. that's why you're not getting fire to your plugs and therefore it won't start. Change out your coil. This should fix the problem.

No fire


first thing i would check would be your spark control module.Located in the distributer under the rotor.take it down to your local autoparts store for testing.have them test it three times in a row to get it to operating temp.if it passes then check your coil with a multimeter.
