I was driving my 1998 zx2 and it shut off it sounds like it gonna start but just wont turn over ive checked igntion coil fuel pump and filter im stuck what else do i look for?


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up


Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?

No spark when trying to start it


If can be the problem with spark plugs itself or the problem with faulty ignition coils,the spark plugs get power from ignition coils. Both the spark plugs and ignition coil voltage needs to be checked. This is many a times caused by weak battery or faulty battery, or can be possible that battery to starter connection is loose or faulty starter itself.First the battery to start and both battery and starter voltage needs to be checked and confirmed.If that is checked ok, then other possibilities like faulty spark plugs, faulty fuel pump etc etc needs to be checked.

Car does not want to start ignition if trying tom start just click's thats it




There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--

1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.

2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.

3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.

4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.

Keep updated if anymore query .Thanks.



5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it's a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

I paid yesterday for my question i recieved about the 1987 dodge aries 2.2 motor k series didt recieve an answer? the car cranks up but dost start


Check to see if it's fire or fuel. Take one spark plug wire off and put on spare new plug, Place spark plug on engine where the tip is grounded against block and while someone trys to start car check to see if there is spark arcking between tip and insulator on plug. it,s best to do this in the dark. if it sparks, try putting a little gas in intake then try to start if it starts or trys to start, yo know it's a fuel problem. Change fuel filter first, f no change check fuel pump. If no spark check ballast resister on firewall or fender

Vehicle is not starting


check your fuel pump, mass air flow sensor, crankshaft sensor, spark plugs, spray starter fluid in your air intake and try starting your car if your car starts then shuts off then your fuel pump is bad if it doesnt start up at all then that means your fuel pump is good and something else is wrong with your car. Fuel pump are some of the mian causes of a car not starting but remember only do this if the car is cranking and not starting if your car is not even trying to start then its your starter.

 CAR WILL NOT START?
There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery.with meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged.if the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop.if the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? if no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack.if the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack.the spark plugs gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car.if the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car.but if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.

5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then its a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked.the car gets power from the battery to get started.so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
But if you are confirmed that engine went out and its not any other problem then engine needs to be replaced.

This parts needs to be replaced in Engine
gasket set, set of pistons and rings, main bearings, rod bearings, thrust washers, timing belt, balance shaft bearings (if applicable), and a set of expansion plugs . Pistons & Rings: Std., .020, .040. Bearings: Std., 10, 20, 30.oil pump.timing kit.etc etc,,.

Car wont start, think its the fuel pump.


It sounds like you are getting air in your fuel line. Maybe not much, yet, but air none the less. The way to check this is to disconnect the fuel line from your fuel rail and put into a large coffee can or something similar. Then have have someone crank the car and if the fuel stream is not steady your fuel pump is going bad. If this is not the problem then you could be having a vapor lock problem caused by a bad charcoal canister.
