Piston ring or else the valve would have got damaged so oly there is no gas pressure and no spark so replace the piston ring and check whether there s any damage in valve and see if tat valve is seated properly if not then seat it properly if there is damage in valve then replace the valve

Getting spark getting gas getting spark getting gas still won't start it still won't start I am getting spark I'm getting gas and it still won't start


Spark may not b strong enough or float level/fuel pressure wrong. Air cleaner or leak in a gasket. Test batt n starter for strength. Compression cud b bad

The engine will not turn over, crank senor maybe


MAYBE? It could be many other things too. Do you have spark, gas from the injectors, fuel pressure, does the engine turn (combustion), exhaust pressure. Start by scanning the computer, any codes to work with? Do you smell gas,Then try pulling the plugs, wet w/ gas? Maybe loss of spark. Checking for spark & to ck the fuel injectors require specialized equipment. I cant go any further unless you are equipped. Getting back to your original question, yes I've changed many crank sensors for no start problems. Have it ckd before you just throw money out the window. Good luck

Gas Guage bouncing strong gas smell before 1998 Chevy Blazer wouldn't start at all. Engine still turns over


Check your fuel pressure, if low or no pressure, replace fuel filter first. My guess is the fuel pump and sensor are bad. You may also want to see if your getting spark, but I don't think bad plugs would make has gage jump around, but if they are not sparking correctly they will allow gas to flood the motor and that's when you get the gas smell

WHEN I GIVE IT GAS IT START TO MISFIRE


Misfires are caused by one of 3 things-gas, spark, or compression-one of those is the problem. For gas, check the fuel pressure and see if it is at the right pressure for your car. Low fuel pressure will cause misfires. If pressure is good, it could still be an injector problem, like a clogged injector. If low pressure, suspect the fuel pump or the fuel filter.
For an ignition spark problem, check your spark plugs. Pull them out and inspect them for broken or cracked plugs, check the spark plug gap, check for oil fouled plugs. You may be able to isolate the misfire to a cylinder or two by the plugs condition. A misfiring plug or cylinder should show more black, sooty deposits than the other plugs. A normal firing plug will have a tan or brown colored insulator on the end with very little deposits. If the plugs are okay, clean them a bit if needed, and check for spark on the spark plug wire ends with engine cranking. Buy an inexpensive spark tester, or hold each spark plug wire metal end terminal 1/4 inch from a ground on the engine block, while cranking the engine. Wear a heavy glove to avoid getting shocked. Check that every cylinder is getting a strong blue spark to eliminate ignition as a problem. A weak, yellow or orange spark is an ignition problem, possibly a bad coil, or other ignition part.

If spark and gas is good, you may need to check engine compression. Any cylinder that has significantly lower compression than the other cylinders will cause a misfire, and set a misfire code. You should check for any trouble codes in the engine computer. A code reader or scanner would have to be connected to the diagnostic connector under the dash. What is "significantly lower" compression? About 15-20% less compression. Say you checked and had 150 psi compression in most cylinders. If one had 20% lower compression ( 150 X 20%= 30 psi, 150 -30 =120 psi, or same as saying 150 X 80%= 120 psi.), a condition like that can cause a misfire. I hope I have made sense here. Good luck, and post back what you find, or if any questions.

Car wont start


could be few different problems first u need to check for fuel pressure and spark
hook a fuel pressure gauge up and see if ur getting any fuel pressure if you have no fuel pressure u either have bad pump or out of gas (don't laugh i had cars come in shop for a no start that where just out gas)
if u have fuel pressure
then check for spark
take one spark plug wire of a spark plug and hold wire about 1/4 inch away from either the spark plug or engine block if u see a spark or hear one
if you have no spark your looking at a few different possibles Bad coil, ignition module, crank sensor, etc
if you have fuel pressure and spark but still no start u need to check for injector pluse (basically computer telling fuel injectors to open)
but now i think I'm getting over your head let me know if this helps and i try to walk u threw other things if this dont help

1996 Sonoma Problem


Not sure. You need to do a little checking of ignition and fuel delivery. I would first check for spark at all four cylinders to eliminate or verify if ignition is causing it. If you have distributorless ignition, you have 2 coils. One coil serves cylinder 1 and 4, the other coil serves cylinders 2 and 3. If for instance, you have weak or no spark on 1 and 4, suspect the coil for them.
If you have good spark on all four, a bright blue, snapping spark, then pull the spark plugs to check they are not fouled, like oil fouled that prevents spark..
If ignition is good, look to the fuel system.
Maybe an injector is blocked open by debris and won't close. That's very rare, but a possibility. The spark plug for that cylinder would likely be much wetter than the other plugs after cranking it over. Maybe the fuel pressure regulator has failed. If you can find the fpr on top of engine (some are located under the intake manifold, hard to get to. and some are fitted to the pump in the gas tank-impossible to inspect) then pull off the vacuum line to it and check for evidence of gas there-a sure sign of a ruptured regulator, and it will let extra gas get sucked into the engine-just like your problem. If you can't find the pressure regulator, you should have the fuel pressure tested-mainly to see if it is too high-also a pressure regulator problem,. likely.
IDK, maybe this will help you a little, good luck.

2003 kia Sedona won't. start


If this is a sudden occurrence and nothing suspicious happened prior, you most likely lost either gas or spark to the engine. You need to check for both.

Do you hear the fuel pump in the gas tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn the ignition key to ON? Unless the fuel pump turns on and puts gas under high pressure at the fuel injectors, the engine cylinders won't get gas to start. Correct fuel pressure is crucial to know if you have a fuel pump (or fuel filter) problem. If the pressure is correct, it is probably not a fuel problem but a spark problem, although there are less common instances where a fuel injector circuit may malfunction.

The ignition system not producing spark at the spark plugs is the other common problem of no starts. Buy a cheap spark tester at a parts store, plug it into one of your spark plug wires, then crank the engine over and watch for a strong blue spark. You might need a helper to do this. If you see a consistent spark, the ignition system is probably good, although you should probably check more than just one plug wire-sometimes one bad ignition coil in a coil pack will cause no starting. Good luck.

bad ignition module . if you getting no spark .plugs wet probably. check fuel pump pressure first before buying another one they are not cheap. replace fuel filter also.
