Before you keep spending money you sould check the basicts first:
Is there electricity getting to the spark plugs? Check connections for good and clean contacts, including inside distributor.
Is there gas getting from the tank to the carburetor or injection system? Check pressure and flow.
Are there any gas filters that are dirty or clogged? If so, replace it.
Are there any fuses or relays burned? If so, replace them.
Is the timing on the timing belt right? If not, set it right.
Is the timing on the distributor right? If not, set it right.
Is the ignition switch in good condition or does it has a play, or the key comes out while the switch is in the on position? If so, try jump-starting the starter directly bypassing the switch or replace the switch.
How old is the gas on the tank? If it's old, try a gas stabilizer or replace the gas.

I have a 1995 Tercel that did this, and the problem was an "alarm tripping". The solution was to hold down the left blinker while starting.

Probably the timing belt.If it has teeth missing or is broken the engine can't fire.Some models have a small itnspection cover you can look in as someone attempts to start the engine and you can see if belt is turning or not.

Have you checked the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay?

Replaced coil packs and plugs in my 1995 toyota tercel but it still runs a little rough what else can I do to get it back running smooth


coil packs and plugs are half the job
injectors and fuel pressure also are responsible for rough running along with oxygen sensors
Run the fault codes first to check where a problem may be.

04 dodge stratus changed coil pack, crankand cam sensor still wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Wont start even if i push her,toyota tercel has no spark


So your telling me that this car is a stick and you can't pop the clutch to start it ? Correct?
I'm gonna give you a list of thing to check, good luck.

a)Do you have crank no start? (see entire write up)
b)No crank no start?, ( battery, battery cables, ignition switch,,starter relay)
c)No dash lights, no crank? (battery, battery cables ignition switch)
If you have symptom A then the affected items are , ignition switch, battery, battery cables, starter, starter relay ,coil, coil pack, ignition module ,Distributor cap ,rotor, (if applicable) spark plugs and wires.
The best thing to do is to first make sure your timing belt didn't break. As long as the engine cranks you can do this. Give the battery a 3 min charge . Then have a helper crank the vehicle while you observe the rotation of all the pulley's and belts. They must rotate together. If the vehicle has a distributor remove the cap ground the coil wire and watch the rotor as the engine is cranked. it should spin. If this is a-ok your worse nightmare is over.
Now we have eliminated the timing belt as being a cause. We now have to charged the battery again for three min and load test it( this is best done by a repair shop a load tester is expensive .If the battery if more than 5yrs old you may want to replace it.
If battery does not pass load test replace it.
Whatever you decide the rest of the items can NOT be checked out without a fully charged battery.
Check ignition switch and starter relay for B+ going to them and leaving them. Check starter circuit. Make sure B+ is making it to starter ( use a digital voltmeter). If B+ (12 volts) is making it to the starter and it doesn't crank then the starter is defective. Do a starter current draw test to verify this or remove the starter and have it bench tested.
If starter cranks now your into coil testing .
Pull a spark plug hook it up to a spark tester and ground it, now crank the engine if you get spark coil is ok and in all likelihood so is module.
If you don't get spark test for spark at the coil wire.
If you get spark here and don't get it at the spark plug wire problem is at distributor cap , rotor or spark plug wire. If plugs look bad use a fresh plug to do testing and naturally replace them.
If all of the above are a-ok.
Next is fuel checks.
Easiest fuel check is to put key into ignition cylinder and turn to on position. Lister for pump to buzz or hum. if it doesn't then check fuel pump relay for B+ going to it and leaving it and going to the pump. If B+ making it to pump and it doesn't turn on the pump is your problem. If B+ not making it to pump either the relay or the ignition switch is defective.
Naturally if the pump is defective have a repair shop do the repair . Its dangerous and a real pain.
Good Luck
IN YOUR CASE I BELIEVE YOU NEED A NEW BATTERY UNLESS THIS ONE IS FAIRLY NEW.

I have a 1995 toyota tercel that has been running rough and now won't start at all. I looked at the sparkplugs and they were full of fuel. Could it be caused by a faulty ignition knock sensor?


Not 100 percent sure what typr of ignition system is
in that car, but check that all the spark plug wires are
all connected properly at the ignition coil. Check the
wiring at the coil and at the chassis ground to make sure it is all tight.Good Luck.

1998 Pontiac transport van wont start:


Well you hit all the major ones, could be crank position sensor, ignition module, a bad coil pack (it should have 3), you need to check that you have spark to each plug while the engine is turning over (!!!be careful as this will hurt if you get shocked!!!), this will rule out coil packs. if you have no spark to any plug your looking at a bad ingnition module (which is what the coil packs bolt to). Hope this gets you on the right track!
