Engine cranks but won start

Won't start sometimes


If the engine cranks over but it wont fire, it could be an ignition circuit problem, plugs, wires, ignition module and the like. Often, a tune-up or a little regular maintenance may help that.
If the engine doesn't crank over when you try to start it, it could be a poor performing starter solenoid-as they get older, the contact points inside the solenoid become worn and pitted, ending good electrical contact. In this case, a new starter solenoid is called for. Good luck.

My 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good


To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

Turns over but won't fire


If a starter is able to crank the engine but it won't start you usually have either an electrical or fuel problem. It's also remotely possibly that it's compression.If an engine has proper fuel, spark and compression, it will start when you crank it. So your challange is to find out which part isn't working right. Start with fuel. Spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while someone tries to start the engine. If it starts briefly when you're spraying starting fluid, you probably have a fuel delivery problem. That could be injectors, fuel pump, fuel filter, relay, fuse... who knows what until you check into it.If it doesn't start with starting fluid, check the spark. Pull a plug wire and attach it to a spare sparkplug and set the plug on a solid metal part of the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch the plug. If you have a good spark, it might just be out of timing.In any case, you'll need to start isolating the problem. Find out which part isn't working then you'll know what to replace/repair.

When i come to a stop, my car doesn't want to accelerate. I give it gas and it barely starts moving, almost like the transmission is slipping. It has an automatic transmission, if I ride the gas pedal...


evap codes won`t cause the acceleration problem.the miss fire codes could cause this if the miss fire is bad enough repair the miss fire problem first.i assume that you have checked the trany fluid for level and condition.if this happens all the time from a stop then you could have a transmission problem with 1st gear activating from a stop.if the rpm`s rise and your not moving with the rpm increase then its a transmission problem.the evap codes will have to be cleared then the car driven to see what shows up again as some false codes can set other codes.

Won't star when cranking engine.


check the fuel pressure, could be the fuel pressure regulator. also check fire if the fuel pressure is ok. weak fire could cause this

1991 Ford F150 starts for an instant then stalls


my dad used to say you need two things to start a motor; gas and fire. Check these and make sure they are both good. You have to go through the steps from there. Could be a fuel filter. could be bad plugs. etc. etc... Hope it helps.
