2002 Ford Escort ZX2 won't start. It's not getting any spark. Have replaced coil, plug wires, and spark plugs.


run the fault codes and check for cam/crank position sensors, broken timing belt and immobiliser operation.

My 97 grand cherokee cranks but wont start i got fuel pressure and i sprayed starting fluid and changed the cps and still wont start looking for any and all solutions


Did it act like it wanted to start when you did that? You say cps but truthfully that don\'t tell me if its crank or cam? It should have a real distributor and you should check fire from there. Look at and check cap, rotor, and wires and make sure they are on correct If you still have no fire then replace ign coil.... Now.. if it was tring to crank when you sprayed it then listen on how it cranks. If it turns over slow,fast or if it sounds retarded. If any of those occur then check timing and all its componets. Make sure the fire you checking is good spark.. blue or red or both just as long as its fire. If you\'ve replaced the coil and still no fire then prolly gone be a timing chain broken but most of the time engine will turn over a lot faster in this factor. If you\'ve check chain and its good, then a broken cam or crankshaft is obvious. Now... you can dig deep into the whole checking voltage and computer if you like... but my personal experience is this problem has never been PCM or ECM

I have a 1997 Gmc Sierra 5.7 4x4. It has no spark. I replaced the coil and ign module today but still no spark. Tech suggested Crank shaft sensor? Truck was running then died going down road. (30kms after...


It could be the CPS, but as you now know throwing parts at a repair is costly and sometimes it does not fix anything. A code scanner should be able to tell you if the sensor is bad. If the CPS goes bad you will have no spark.

Installed a new timing belt. Old timing belt broke


not timed right. You have to remove the plug, and insert a straw through the spark plug hole so that you can see when the piston is all the way up

Crank and no start.


Always retrace your steps, I would check the timing, remove the cam cover and make sure the t/belt hasn't jumped a tooth or three. Make sure the crank is on TDC, and the cam slash marks are even with the head. It is most likely related to the t/belt install.

Engine will not start!!!


was the timing belt changed, since it overheated the cam may have gotten tight and the belt might have jumped 2-3 teeth and you still would have a spark and fuel pressure.

Go to a library that has a set of the factory service manuals (not Chlton's or Haynes or Motor's). The FSM's will give you all the trouble hotting charts that the dealer techs use.
