Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

1 Answer

Diesel Will no start

When I turn the key the engine spins really fast but there is no fire. I have checked the fuses but can't find one that is bad. My son replaced a radio in it and placed the original radio back into it. I have removed the radio but I still get nothing. Any ideas...

My Nissian Sentra 1996 won't start it turns over but won't fire I replace the distributor still won't start and all my indicator lights on the dash are on with the key off any suggestions thank you

A 1996 Nissan - older vehicle - probably lots of miles - could be numerous things.
1. check to make sure the timing belt is OK
does it sound normal when cranking the engine or does it spin the engine really fast? Does it labor hard when cranking?
2. check for spark -
you may need someones help - a spark tester is the safest way and they are fairly cheap to buy at a parts store.
3. check for fuel -
spray some carb cleaner in the intake/throttle and crank it - if it fires and dies then lack of fuel needs to be addressed
Let me know if this helps you at all

93 Geo Storm standard Transmission 1.6 Engine Lately I have to push start it Replaced ignition switch Checked all the fuses Starters good Help 48 disabled female

bad fuel, is it old? fuel.
needs tuneup, air cleaner and spark plugs , at least.
if the starter cranks fast and dont' start,
but does push started. that means the spark is weak
when cranking, and marginal spark plugs can do that.
this car is really (under Geo snake skins) a
an Isuzu Impulse
and Isuzu is defunct there too. (double bad)

now my real guess......analysis...
im not sure your order stated.
the engine would not crank over with a key before the new switch or after?
and "starters good", does that mean , it still fails to crank start with key
but the hot wiring of starter does?
try this:
tell use what happens when you turn the key, is best.
I turn the key, and i get the dash board to light up,
lots of lights. and the CEL LaMP GLOWS.
the CEL lamp, means the ENGINE brain is alive.
then you turn the key to cranks (start) position.
  1. nothing happens.
  2. it only clicks
  3. it cranks slowly,
  4. it cranks fast, just like a new car does. fast. cranking.


and does jumper cable starts work>?
if this works , your battery is low. , discharged or dead, or bad.
if the battery keeps going low, its bad, or the alternator fails to charge the battery, or you have phantom drains , discharging it as you sleep.

my guess, (based on most common)
is #3, slow cranks, and spark plugs are long since gone.(fouled and gaps no longer in spec>)

Getting gas and fire but just turnes over like there is no fire at all

which engine, they work different.
you saw gas where.?
you saw fuel where??
you saw something turn, what?
try this.
it cranks robustly (250RPM = robust)?
the engines cranks over, (i see pulley spin fast on crank)?
the engine fails to start and to RUN (sustained).?
you lost spark to 4 or 6 clingers, all are dead spark?
so you place the diagnostic jumper wire and crank for
and release the key,
got DTC error codes, bingo.
if not bad spark is bad coil or bad ignitor that drives said coil.

next is fueling but above is all first.
fuel is always LAST. (ECU cuts fuel for many reasons) ask.

Hi I have a Santa Fe 2.0 litre diesel on a 2002 reg I went to work the car drove and started great when I finished work after 12 hours the car would not start it turns over fast but not fire up can anyone...

check your timing chain, if the engine spins fast, it might not have compression, and valve timing is important for that timing chain controls valve timing

We have a 1997 Ram1500 Pickup with a 360 magnum. It will not start. It will spin over but won't catch. We have checked all fuses and relays. It is getting fire to the plugs. We have checked the fuel lines...

so is it not getting fuel?? if not i would listen if the fuel pump is running it should be good, and the first thing i would do is change the fuel filter, but yes the fuel pump is in the tank, and by saying it will spin over, is that like really fast, or turn over normally.. if its really fast you had a timing chanin go.

1993 6.5 diesel wont start need to pull start

Sounds like you can't get the starter to spin the engine over fast enough to get it to start.Are you using the dual battery setup.They will supply enough cold cranking amps to get it to fire.
Load test them to make sure they're in good condition .Have the starter checked as well.
The worst case scenario would be a worn out engine that simply can't compress the fuel enough to ignite it.Bad compression rings,valve seal,even a leak at the injectors all contribute to poor compression.
I'd look at the batteries first,checking their cables next.Then get that starter checked.And lastly worry about the compression.Okay?Let me know how it goes,Take care!

Starting issue with 2009 CRV

When you brought the crv in for service, did you tell them about this problem? If not, TELL THEM NOW!! Keep a log of when this happens (day, time, description of what happens). You need to keep track of this and let the dealer know about the problem now, before the warranty expires. The log of info when having trouble will help them diagnose the problem, and it is MUCH better to have a detailed list than to say, 'oh, it happens sometimes'. So bring the crv back to dealer for another appointment, explain the trouble, and keep on bringing it back until the problem is fixed. This could be a problem with the starter. When you turn the key to start, a gear in the starter advances on a shaft, meshing with the flywheel, and then it cranks the engine over to start the vehicle. It sounds from your description, that the gear is not always advancing on the shaft all the way to the flywheel every time (the gear will just spin quickly, as there would be no resistance because it is not turning the engine over) and the gear will spin quickly, sort of sounding like the engine is turning over fast, when actually it's just the gear spinning. The grinding sound could be the gear clashing (not meshing smoothly) with the flywheel. You definitely have a problem, so don't stop complaining to the dealer until it's fixed.
