Engine turns but will not start. Appears it is not getting the fuel. Why.

Check and see if fuel pump is working and also check your fuel filter as it could be plugged.
Check and see if the spark plugs are firing. Pull a spark plug and see if they need replacing . Could be an electrical problem as far as the engine firing. Could be a number of things.

Why engine stop firing

Are you getting spark?
Check to see if distributor rotor is turning. If not, inspect timing belt.
If it is turning, then are your plugs sparking? Is your distributor cap or are the leads damaged?

Also check air filter condition and fuel filter condition.
Check for fuel delivery and pump operation.

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire

If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

Car won't start

Check the fuse/relay panel inside car on drivers side and under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. With the key turned to the on position listen for the fuel pump to come on. Use an inline spark tester to check for fire from the coil to the spark plug wires. If you have not serviced the car in quite a while.then change the plugs and check the air filter,oil,antifreeze in car. Hope this will help.

Won't start. turning, but won't fire.

If you think its fuel, spray some starter fluid inthe throttle body. If it fires up, you have a fuel problem, otherwise, check your spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. Also, check your fuses.

Engine will turn over but will not start running

start with the basics check for fuel fire and air check fuel peressure with a gauge should be 50 - 65psi
pull spark plug wire and place near ground if no spark in crank sensor or coil pack ensure air filter is cleaned

on fuel pressure if low check fuel filter pump may be working and cant get to fuel rail but could have damaged pump the fuel pump is controlled via crank sensor signal so no crank sensor signal no fuel

Just replaced the engine in a 2002 Focus. after finishing, I'm trying to start the car but it won't. The car was parked for 4 months before I bought it with broken engine. Can't get it to start. Does the...

there is no safety switch beside the fuses and relays how did you replace an engine, did you rebuilt it from top to bottom or did you just put another used motor in? if you replace it with another motor assuming you did not mess with the timing such as the belt and the camshaft, check and make sure you getting fire from spark plugs, having a friend turn the engine over and you observing the plug. by pulling one wire with the plug and ground it and turn the engine over and see if you getting any sparks, second check and make sure you getting plenty of fuel to the fuel filter and the fuel pump is working properly. no fuel to the filter, check fuel pump, good pump, faulty crank sensor. that is the first two thing need to be check, fuel and sparks. if no sparks, check coil if its good and putting out 12V, if its not, check the cam sensor, may be faulty. faulty cam sensor will not make spark plugs fire. if you are getting sparks and fire, than it out of timing, rotate the distributor forward or backward with small movement no more than a tip of a car key at a time, when you capture the running or sputtering of the engine, movement should be no more the a pencil lead forward or backward. without using a timing gun the best way to know if you have the engine on correct but close timing if you able to crank/start the engine and it fire right up without keeping the key turn.

Truck died while driving, as if the key was turned off. It started a couple of times after that, but is now dead. I checked the filter and the casing was only half full. So, I figured it was the fuel pump....

check the fire, if you are not getting fire to the plugs, it will never crank, check the fire first, easy way to see is to remove a plug stick back into plug wire and turn over starter and see if spark happenes at plug ,get the plug close to metel on motor, to check spark, hope to help you, robert b.
