Turns over but wont start


is this diesel or petrol.if diesel then look to your fuel pump.under it is a plug .remove this and drain what will be water on the bottom of it.only a small amount then refit.now pump the fuel up to it is very hard .then get someone to turn the engine over .as you keep pumping should then start.that is done due to air in the system. if petrol you need a spark plug tester.check the coil has a spark .then check the leads at the spark plugs are getting a spark .then check the plugs for a spark .smell them .do you smell fuel on them .if so change the plugs.

1993 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine cuts off when cold or hot


Someone will need to check it over when it fails to start. You need to know if it is not getting fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.

Hi ive had problem with my car some days when u turn the key it wont start then try again then it will but nw driving hme frm wrk my car started juddering then cut owt now it wont start help???


Try spark plugs, they are a very common problem and will cause loss of performance hard starting, and engine failure. Inexpensive place to start troubleshooting

My van just turned off as i was driving. it tries to turn over but wont.. it has gas what might the problem be


Check for spark in order to see if the engine's ignition system is working.
Add starting fluid to the intake to see if it starts for a few seconds.
If the car does start, then it's a fuel delivery problem such as a fuel pump or a computer that doesn't allow fuel injectors to pulse.

If it doesn't start, then the spark is likely not being delivered to the spark plugs.
One can double check this by using a spark tester for the spark plug boot removed from the spark plug and grounded to the chassis.

My car runs great, but when i turn it off and try to drive it again in a minutes it wont start .i have to let it set for a while before it will start again


crank position sensor, camshaft position sensor or an injector with too many ohms resistance. when you turn the key to the on position you should hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds. if not suspect fuel pump relay or fuel pump

you will need to determine if it's a no spark issue or a no fuel issue.

When the car wont start spray some carb cleaner or starter fluid into the intake and try to start. if it does start and run for a few second then the problem is with the ignition side

check for spark by removing a spark plug lead from a spark plug and putting a good spark plug in the wire, use a jumper cable and clamp one end to the spark pug thread and the other to battery ground. Turn the engine over and you should see spark.

is the check engine light on? if so get the computer scanned, autozone will do it for free

2001 Ford Focus stopped running while i was driving and wont start. Makes a churning sound but no power is going to engine. I changed the ignition coil, still wont turn on. Any suggestions?


Can you explain more so I can help. What do you mean still wont turn on, engines doesn't start or starter motor doesn't turn. Have u taken out a spark plug and connected it to the cable put the end of the spark plug to a ground and make someone turn on the engine for a few seconds you should see some blue sparks. Carefully use gloves. If no sparks, spark plug is bad next thing to check instead of putting the spark plug in the cable put Philips screwdirver put the screwdriver near a ground not touching about one inch make someone turn the engine for a couple of second you should see the spark jumping from the screwdriver to the ground, If there are no sparks ignition coil or spark plug cables are not good. But u say u changed ignition coil so maybe your cables are not good. There is a connector near the ignition coil disconnect it and turn ignition switch on measure the voltage you should have in between 12vdc + or - .5 vdc if no voltage present there is a blown fuse, Check for it

Wont start


check to see if the coil is still pluged in, or better yet try getting a spark tester(i got one at autozone for like $5) and disconnect one of the plug wires. if the coil if still working is should show at least a 1/2 inch spark.
