Listen for the fuel pumps to come on when you turn the car to on (not start) if you hear them its a spark issue normally. Suggest checking/replacing coil packs, engine wiring harnesses for degradation because of biodegradable wiring insulation.

1998 petrol transit starts then stop again


Sounds like a fuel starvation issue. You may want to start with something simple like changing the fuel filter, and move on from there. After replacing the fuel filter, check fuel system pressure to ensure it's in the right range (around 47 PSI for most fuel injected gasoline (petrol) engines). If the fuel pressure is low, it may be the pre-filter on the fuel pump, or the fuel pump itself.

Why does the engine turn but wont start on a 2001 chrysler voyager


Hi, it's hard to turn the wheel because the power steering only works when the engine is running.
your non start issue could be several things? So start by checking the basics like petrol,plugs,fuses etc....
also did the car stop when you were driving or after over night?.
Is your car petrol,diesel?

93 rodeo turns over but wont start


probably should ask petrol or diesel how ever ill go with petrol. if at all possible get some one to operate key while you get close to the fuel tank and listen for the fuel pump operating, another way to check is disconnect fuel return line and crank over engine being careful as if pump is working fuel will pump out possibally causing a fire hazard so once again only a quickflick of the key is needed , usually the pump can be heard operating if you go close enough to the tank. so I guess we will start there , is there fuel getting to the engine?

Turns over but wont start


is this diesel or petrol.if diesel then look to your fuel pump.under it is a plug .remove this and drain what will be water on the bottom of it.only a small amount then refit.now pump the fuel up to it is very hard .then get someone to turn the engine over .as you keep pumping should then start.that is done due to air in the system. if petrol you need a spark plug tester.check the coil has a spark .then check the leads at the spark plugs are getting a spark .then check the plugs for a spark .smell them .do you smell fuel on them .if so change the plugs.

Petrol put into diesel car now it wont start


Drain all the petrol on your tank and so on the injection pump by pumping it. Open or loosen small tube going into the engine from the injection pump, to drain all petrol.

Make sure that petrol are remove from the engine fuel system, change fuel filter also. After removal bleed the engine.

MY PEUGEOT 307 WON'T START, WE TRIED JUMP LEADS, BUT DIDNT WORK. ITS A 2004 MODEL. 1.4 PETROL


hi if the engine wont even turn over then the chances are the starter motor needs replacing, if the engine is turning over and it just wont start then you need to look at things like the fuel pump or fuel pump relay

My bmw 318 ran out of petrol now it wont start i have changed fuel filter


if you can't hear the fuel pump cut in for a couple of seconds, check the fuse. Check the relay, or replace it with a known good one. See if you have power to the fuel pump. If you have power, your fuel pump is in need of replacement.
When you run an electric fuel pump out of gas, you should always cycle it about 10 times before you try to start the engine. That is, turn the key to on for a few seconds, and then off, and repeat. You need to get some fuel up to the engine.

1995 eagle talon wont start


Hi

You did not specify if its petrol or Diesel I am assuming it is diesel. It might be the glow plugs. Get them checked as you will need these to get it started. If its petrol its a different issue. It might be the ignition coil (no spark) coming to the distributor. Whichever the type of car make sure that there is fuel coming to the engine. In the case of diesel you should have a primer rubber fuel pump which you press in order to bring fuel to the engine.

Hope this was of help to you :)
Thanks

Fuel starvation


Check the fuel pump, the fuel filter, and the return lines to the fuel tank. Any one of these things could cause a zero pressure condition in the fuel system.
