Obviously, there is a fuel delivery problem, even though there is pressure; the injectors have to open to squirt the stuff into the cylinders. Got a code reader? That would be a good step in the right direction....accordianman

Fixexpert, Hondachopper, RonaldSuboc, Kevin000, Chad7, please step off, you are ALL WRONG, and your info is 100% USELESS.
If you HAD ANY experience re this issue, you would KNOW THE FOLLOWING:

Kkvesr, What you need to look for, is the main ECU ground point at the LF rocker panel rail; lift the carpet to see this, between the seat and the rocker...there are several wires going to a corrugated "star washer". If you are NOT getting a ground pulse in the RED wire, your main ECU ground, at the wire position described above, may be corroded. if so, no injection.
This is a very common problem, unique to the Bonneville.
Please advise me if this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: the car has spark and fuel pressure is at 58 psi

something with the injectors isn't right. Probally not sending the signal to let the fuel spray into the cylinder. Out of my expertise so I suggest you ask a new question, "Fuel injectors aren't spraying, what would cause this?" Hopefully someone else would be able to help you out.

2006 tahoe is parked on step incline backed in and now wont start

Back to basics, as things fail while just sitting still sometimes. Getting spark to plugs? Correct fuel pressure? Will small spray of starter fluid make it start for a few seconds?

I have a 95 grand Cherokee. I'm getting fuel, and I'm getting spark. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor, and it still wont start. I spray starting fluid in carb, it starts and dies. Please help

what does getting mean? which engine, 4Liter or 5.2 or what?
spark at all cylinders is getting and timed right?
runs on test fuel so sparks good, that means fuel is bad
or flooding or too little fuel.
code 12 cranking for 5 seconds, means sensors are ok.
why replace parts that make spark when sparks good, it run on test fuel, why worry spark.? and not just fueling.?

now lets do fuel, step one is fuel pressure, not squirt tests.or dribble test. a real tool called,a fuel pressure gauge that works, and nothing else, (unless rail is dry and now we know its not)

if all spark plug tips are dry, are they?
then its not injecting, (the ECU can cut injection for 2 reasons) ask
or there is no real pressure.
so we open the FSM and read page FUELING
49psi is idle pressure, (more cranking with so little vacuum)

the tests are all there,

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 !

1996 suburban with 5.7l have good fuel pressure, sparks at the plugs, cranks with starter fluid but wont crank when i disconnect the crank sensor.

when you say good fuel pressure is it 55 psi with the key on and engine off? any thing less then 50 psi will not start the engine. if the engine starts with starter fluid then the problem is in the fuel system.

2000 S10 no start

I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.

1998 caviler wont start.has compresson. has fuel

You will not have a hot wire on the fuel injectors. The go for the injectors is a monentary high which means even when cranking over you will not see it with a multimeter. When cranking over after a bit you should smell gas if not you are probably not getting fuel. If you smell gas the you are probably not getting spark. This is most likely the senerio since you couldn't start it with starting fluid. By the way don't do that very often because it can damage your engine. There are several areas to look if you have no spark. The first is the distributor, the second is your coil and the last is your computer. Good luck. Please rate the helpfulness of my answer.

I have a 1999 gmc Yukon it is getting fuel and spark i even sprayed starter fluid in the intake but it still wont start it turns over good but wont start

ok make sure you have good fuel pressure
you must have good spark must fire a spark tester
if all that is good then check compression
and don't use STARTER FLUID on a GAS ENGINE it can blow a hole through the piston
hope this helps
