If you have spark at the plugs chances are it is the CPS, Fords are known for having the CPS go bad but it could just be a loose or dirty connection so always check that the connection is good before replacing it. You can use some paper clip wires and a voltmeter to back probe the CPS pins at the connector and the measured AC voltage with engine running should be over 200mV. Sometimes the voltage looks OK when the engine is cold but falls below 200mV when it gets hot. This indicates a fault.

1998 dodge dakota 3.9 runs great for about 10 min. than starts to miss and backfire no check engine light


you may have a plugged fuel filter as you don`t say if you have changed it. also have your fuel pressure tested with a gage, it should run about 36 lbs pressure if its multi-point fuel injection or run at about 15/18 lbs pressure if its a throttle body.

I have a 1991 dodge shadow and the fuel enjector is not pulseing but has gas to the carberator what controls the injector pulse


It is a fused circuit, so check the fuse first. The injector should have a hot wire to it when the key is on. Ground a test light and check for the hot wire with key on. If you have that, then move the test light lead to the positive post of the battery, and probe the ground wire terminal of the injector harness-now have someone crank the car over and check for a blinking light. If the light is blinking when cranking, the ground circuit is good. See? The injector always has power to it with key on. When the computer grounds the injector circuit for a split second, power is passed across the injector solenoid terminals causing it to pulse.

use a12 volt test light and test for power on pink and black wire to the coils if no power check ign fuses manly ign 1 fuse if you have power then hook test light to bat positive and check for grounding pulse on the other wire at each coil if it is pulseing while cranking then suspect bad coils.

My 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee started perfectly yesterday morning. After stopping, turning off the car for about 5 minutes it would not start. I had it towed to a repair shop, where it started and all tests...


A definition: cranking is what happens when you turn the key, the starter engages and turns the engine. (term comes from when that was done with a crank that you stuck into the front of the engine to start it, before electric starters were invented) Turning over is the same as cranking. Starting is when the engine actually starts, even if for a brief moment.
Now...if the engine turns when you turn the key it is cranking. Was it doing that? If not, the problem is either in the battery, starter/starter relay or security system (sometimes) or the ignition switch. If it is turning and not starting, then the engine needs to be checked to make sure it has spark at the plugs, and fuel going into it. These problems are different ans some can be easily solved.

94 lumina will not start after getting warm. will turn over but fuel injectors dont work. works during cold weather but not in hot weather.


The check engine light should be on with the engine running. The coolant temperture senser may be open at some temps the fastest way to test this is to change the senser ( it's cheap and a high failure rate part all auto parts stores will haveplenty of this high failure part in stock and they fail many ways. If the car ever overheated it's damaged or truly bad. A very good one will optimize fuel mileage so if it's suspect change it anyway as money well spent a working but wrong senser can cost alot of gas on any fuel injection car or truck, You get what you pay for in temp sensers and the brand name ones are better. All of them are suspect to be bad even when new and ohm test at temperture charts are is repair manuels. Crank sensers and cam sensers also get hot and quit they cost more are harder to change and fail more on the 3.8 motor than the 3.1 or the 3.4. Igiton modules do this too but it sounds like its been doing this awhile and modules and crank sensers don't stay half bad very long. they stop altogrther. Temp sensers can stay bad and work wrong. If you can get a scanner hooks to the car on data stream the senser may show room temp when cold but as it heats up goes up then to -34 thats open the system doesn't know that to do as the air charge temp senser doesn't agree and the system fails to start and will check as flooded. Flooring the gas and hoding it there may start it anyway. The trottle position senser were to show open thats the clear flood mode and the injectors won't fire. Tps voltage should show .5 volt les than 1 volt at idel (it'll start) and 5 volts at full throttle or nearly. if it shows with a scanner of a voltmeter on the center wire 5 volts or 0 it won't start. Coolant senser fails more often and is cheaper

2000 chevy venture doesnt start


check to make sure the security light is not on if it is the van will have spark but no injecter pulse the best way to solve this issue is to have the original igniton key and put it in the igniton in the run position and leave it on for 10 minutes then the light will flash then try to start the van

My s10 will turn over, but wont squirt gas through injecter


Does it crank? Do you have any codes? Check engine light? Do you have spark? No spark check coil, and connections, also it would be nice to know what year it is. Get codes read. No crank check battery and starter. No codes or lights check crank position sensor, make sure your pcm is good after replacing your ignition mod you could have blown it if you did do it right. (engine computer) Check cam sensor if applies. Crank and cam could prevent it from starting and I know one I think cam controls pcm's fuel delivery on gm's
