Start by testing the spark with an inline plug tester, if good check fuel pressure at rail and then injector signal with a noid light, you are missing one of the three once you know what is lacking trouble shoot from there

My 96 volvo 850 gtl2.4L ENGINE CRANK OVER BUT WONT START I REPLACED THE INGNITION COIL \ POWER STAGE WITH NO RESULTS.PLEASE HELP


Reasons for engine turning over and not firing are simple. Spark or fuel. If you've changed the coil packs then chances are it's a fuel issue. Get in cab and turn ignition to second position whilst listening to back seat. You should hear the faint noise of the fuel pump working. If you can't, I suggest you firstly check your manual to find the fuse/relay for the fuel pump and check that. If they are fine, you need to replace fuel pump.

If you can hear it working and it still won't start, remove the fuel line going to injector rail and point into a jar whilst someone turns engine over. You should have fuel coming out. If this is fine, go back to ignition, remove a spark plug and turn engine over checking for a spark.

My bet is your fuel pump has packed-up. Good luck diagnosing.

try spraying starter fluid in intake from air filter housing when you crank. if it sounds like its going to start, you have a fuel problem. If not, you have ignition problem. For fuel, could be filter or pump.

I have a 97 murqury couger. I changed the pluges, wire, but it still will not run. It tries to start but it wont catch on. It has a week spark coming from the coils. Please help me!


If the engine cranks at a normal speed,and the starter seems not to be dragging ,there should be a hot enough spark to start,and run.
Check for a voltage drop in the starting system.Make a visual inspection of the battery cables, and all the starter connections, tight,loose broken,corroded,clean as needed. ect. Check for a bad connection or corroded wiring near the battery,a wire that comes off the positive battery cable may not be feeding the ignition the voltage needed,since the starter takes a good bit even if it is in good condition.Look for a starter relay between the battery and the starter,check cable connects.Check engine grounding cable too. You could have bad coils or a bad ign.module or a bad crank sensor. You may ask a jobber to test the module first.Before you buy any coil pack,or crank sensor. I hope this helps you some.The crank sensor is not expensive,just the labor will be.

My 2004 bmw 525i wont start or crank although the battery has full power


won't crank????? Starter motor probably. Crank but won't run...fuel pump, crank sensor, coil pack and/or computer.
could also be the relay sending full juice to the starter motor.

I have an 1999 ford rsnger that wont start


DOES IT HAVE POWER/ A GOOD BATTERY? IF SO CHECK & SEE IF IT IS GETTING FIRE OUT FROM THE COIL PACKS,THE QUICKEST WAY TO SEE IF IT IS FIRE OR A FUEL PROBLEM IS SPRAY A LITTLE STARTING FLUID IN THE THROTTLE BODY,& IF IT CRANKS & THEN CUTS RIGHT BACK OFF ITS A FUEL PROBLEM,FUEL PUMP FUSE,FUEL PUMP RELAY,OR FUEL PUMP,& OR FUEL FILTER, IF ITS NOT GETTING FIRE IT COULD BE A CRANK SENSOR, A CAM POSITION SENSOR,COIL PACK(S) OR A FUSE OR RELAY.
