Motorcycle won't start! Cranks but won't start up

My motorcycle was running fine a couple months ago. It now will turn over and crank like crazy. So the battery and starter are fine. I have tried messing witht the petcock, changing the choke, open and closed throttle. The bike just won't start! It WILL NOT start when I drop the clutch either! HELP ME :(

How do I trouble shoot an engine that won't start?


Hi, Frank and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping. Good luck and have nice a day.

My bike wont start tried new battery still no go its sqealing its turning over but i.pt


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

Van will not start when its cold. it cranks and cranks. once you do get it started it restarts fine. have checked spark and fuel all is good. changed air filter also. no lights come on


I saw something similar to this on a 1991 dodge van a few days ago.. turns out it was the battery. It was odd, because it cranked over fine and had spark and fuel, but would not start. If your battery is good, then confirm that your fuel pressure is ok

Have a 1986 F350 4wd crew cab with a 460 , A couple months ago I replaced the coil , plugs roter and cap it was running great . This afternoon I tried to start her up it cranks but won't start .


So start by checking for spark and fuel. If no spark or fuel you will need to troubleshoot that system further but before we can do that you need to verify if you have both of those.

Cranks but wont start


this is a classic symptom of a defective fuel pump pressure check valve, it is not holding pressure after the car is turned off, this causes the problem you have, the check valve is part of the fuel pump and that is located in the gas tank.
