Check your air mass sensor, it is attachted to to lid of the air filter assembly. Unplug the cable that leads to the sensor, and try starting you car. If it runs, at all, then it needs a new sensor.

Not starting. Getting fuel/spark, and compression is good in all cylinders.


I don't think there is any sensor, you might need to check all the plug wires one of the wires might have come loose if they all are good then check to make sure that your getting fuel to the motor even if your fuel pump is working you might have a blockage in the fuel line, double check the timing to make sure that its right because if its off just a hair it will cause the car not to start. once you have done that if it still wont start hit me up and we will go from there ill check to see what else we should do to get your car up and going!!!!!

Replaced motor and im getting power to the distributor and to the coil packs but it wont fire we have changed the cam and crank sensors and nothing does anyone know how to help please


Without a look under the bonnet sorry hood i couldnt tell you ,yes your getting power to the coils but it may not be sparking due to the immobilisor system as this breaks the earth return circuit ,i think the best bet is to ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,also you havent stated the year of the vehicle as this can help to decide a answer for a question as vehicles do differ with different years of manufacture although the smae model

1984 Chrysler new Yorker 2.6l wont start. Replaced the fuel filter, new spark plugs and wires, new fuel shut off switch, new relay delay fuse, and a new ignition coil, oh yeah and a new starter. Ever hear...


Here's a quote from amy Chilton's manual for 1980-1987.

"Several types of fuel filters are used. One is located in the fuel tank of all the vehicles and is part of the fuel guage assembly. Second is a sealed paper element, in-line unit; mechanical system- located on the engine (above the fuel pump) or electrical system- located in front of the fuel tank. Third is a paper element, in-line fuel filter/vapor separator, housed in a fuel resevoir. Normally, the in-tank filter does not require changing. If it does, the fuel tank must be removed. "
This thing you describe sounds like the typical Chrysler in-line filter of its day. It is nothing more than the same generic in-line plastic see-thru filter you buy for your lawn mower except in the 70's and 80's it was covered in metal and had a Chrysler part number. A lot of guys added an extra filter in those days, it wasn't the best system. I would remove the outlet line and turn the fuel pump on, see if you get fuel. Replace if needed.

Where is the ignition module located on a 1990 dodge van with a 318 motor


usually you wont have spark if you have a bad ignition module....how did you check for a good spark? And how did you check if it was getting gas? I'm just questioning your choice of words in your post because it doesnt make much sense to me, but I'm here to help.
Usually I just handle issues like this as a NO START issue and go from there. starter fluid in the throttle body......If it runs for a few seconds, we have a fuel problem. If not, I check for spark. If the car has spark plug wires, I use an old school timing light and put the clamp on all wires one at a time and check if there is signal at all plug wires while cranking the engine to start. If the timing light flashes, I pull spark plugs. sometimes one, sometimes more; each car may be different. If the timing light dont flash as I'm cranking I inspect the module or distributor or coil and go from there. If your car is running, You wont have a compression issue.
let us know how you tested for spark and fuel so we can get a better idea of what is going on. Thanks

If you have not yet, go ahead and check your wires and spark plugs, to do that pull out the spark plug, turn the car on (don't worry it wont shoot flames out, the spark-plug isn't in it to ignite the flame), and with the spark plug in the wire, touch the spark plug to the head, valve cover, frame etc., to get a ground. Try several times if there is no spark, after checking all of them (one at a time so you don't confuse the wires, very important), go to the next possibility of it being the wires and do the same with the wire 1-2mm away from contacting a ground (first expose all wires with the car off), If all are still good than it could be your coil pack (replacement of the distributer). Remember though when checking the spark plugs, though you might have a spark, you wont be able to tell all the time but it could be a weak spark and that will also effect it. cheapest way to eliminate possibilties is to replace the spark plugs anyway, it always helps with gas saving. I believe it's autozone, schucks or napa that do a free diagnostic on your car, but if its a bad wire or anything i listed then it will probably come up as a cylinder misfire. hope i helped, if not, sorry for the wasted time.

93 honda del sol will turn over but wont start. It has a new time belt, distrib, and the main relay works.


Is it not getting spark or gas? It needs both to run. Both main source. If no spark in any cylinder, then ignition module or crank sensor is likely faulty. If no gas, then fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump or fuel pump relay is bad.
