1990 accord won't start, engine turns over and put in new spark plugs and wires. What else should I check/do?


Check for gas and spark to the engine. I'm thinking a '90 accord might be multi-point injection, although they transitioned about then from throttle body injection to multi-port injection. Either way, you need to check if the injectors are firing and putting gas into the engine. Does the fuel pump work? Is there pressure in the gas feed line?
Usually, a no start is because the engine has lost either fuel or spark. You need to check for both. Use a spark tester from parts store- a cheap and easy test for spark.

I was driving my car and it backfired, and has not cranked since. it turns over but will not start was told it could be a electronic probelm. what could it be.


It could be gas or spark (ignition system). To find out why it won't start, you have to start checking. Does your fuel pump turn on? Turn the key to on,. not start. There should be a buzz or hum from the gas tank that lasts about 2 or 3 seconds. That is the pump inside the tank and it will put pressure in the gas line and put gas up to the engine. The pump is electrical. If you do not hear it come on, you will need the fuel pump circuit tested to find the problem.

If you do hear the pump, then you need to check ignition system: check for spark on a spark plug wire. If you are not sure how, then get someone to help you who knows how, because you need two people anyway- one to watch for spark and one to be cranking the engine over with the key. If you do have spark, a strong blue spark, maybe the injector circuit needs checked. The fuel pump puts gas up to the engine, and the injectors put gas inside the engine.
If you don't have spark on any spark plug wire, then the ignition system is the problem. This is pretty complex and needs electrical testing to find the problem with it. Post back if you have questions. Good luck.

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!


I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

Will not start


THE BLOWERVAC COULD HAVE GAS PROBLEM OR A NO SPARK TO SPARK PLUG PROBLEM. TO DETERMINE THE SPARK PROBLEM FIRST, REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG, LOOK AT THE END OF THE SPARK PLUG (ENGINE END) TO SEE IF IT IS DRY OR WET WITH GAS, THEN RE-ATTACH THE SPARK WIRE WHILE THE SPARK PLUG IS LAYING LOOSE AND PULL THE ROPE TO TURN THE ENGINE AND LOOK TO SEE IF THERE IS SPARK OCCURING AT THE SPARK PLUG. IF THERE IS SPARK PRESENT, YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH SPARK. REPLACE THE PLUG AND WIRE. IF NO SPARK CHECK YOUR WIRE LEADING TO THE SPARK PLUG TO MAKE SURE IT HAS AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AT BOTH ENDS, SPARK PLUG END AND ENGINE END. IF LOOSE FIX THE CONNECTION THEN RE-TRY THE SPARK/ENGINE TURN OVER BY ROPE METHOD AGAIN TO SEE THEN IF YOU HAVE SPARK. IF THEN YOU DO HAVE SPARK, RE-ATTACH SPARK PLUG TO THE ENGINE AND RE-ATTACH SPARK PLUG WIRE TO THE SPARK PLUG AND TRY THEN TO START THE ENGINE.
IF THERE WAS A WET PLUG WHEN YOU FIRST REMOVED THE SPARK PLUG AND YOU NOW HAVE SPARK AT THE SPARK PLUG, YOUR ENGINE SHOULD START.
IF IT STILL WILL NOT START AFTER THE SPARK CHECK, I WOULD REPLACE THE SPARK PLUG WITH A NEW ONE.
IF THEN IT WILL NOT START, THEN REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG AGAIN AND POUR A SMALL AMOUNT OF GAS INTO THE ENGINE SPARK PLUG HOLE. A PINT PLASTIC OIL CAP FULL OF GAS IS ENOUGH, DO NOT OVER USE MORE THEN THAT.
THE RE-ATTACH YOUR SPARK PLUG AND SPARK PLUG WIRE AND TRY STARTING THE ENGINE AGAIN. IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL PULLS TO GET THE EXTRA GAS IN THE SPARK HOLE TO BE USED UP BEFORE YOU START TO HEAR IT RUN ALITTLE AND FIRE NOW AND THEN.
IT SHOULD START THEN.
IF THEN IT DOES NOT START, YU HAVE USED UP THE GAS YOU PUT INTO THE ENGINE BY THE CAP FULL METHOD AND IT IS NOT GETTING GAS BY THE GAS TANK SUPPLY.
THIS MEANS THEN YOU HAVE AN IN LINE GAS LINE FILTER THAT IS PLUGGED UP OR YOUR GAS MAY BE OLD IN THE GAS TANK. IF GAS IS NOT OLD AND FILTER IS NOT PLUGGED, THEN YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE GAS LINE LEADING TO THE ENGINE CARBURATOR TO SEE IF IT WILL FLOW FROM THE GAS TANK OUT THE GAS LINE SUPPLY HOSE. IF IT DOES FLOW FREELY, THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE A GAS SUPPLY PROBLEM,
AS LONG AS YOUR GAS IS NOT OLD GAS. OLD GAS WILL GO BAD IN TIME. I'D REPLACE THE GAS WITH NEW AND TRY AGAIN.
IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, THEN ITS CARBURATION CLEAN UP TIME.
IT WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE ENGINE BY A FEW BOLTS, HOSE'S REMOVED AND TAKEN APART AND CLEANED. TARNISH FROM GAS AND OIL WILL BLOCK THE CARBURATOR JETS AND VACCUM PUMP FROM WORKING PROPERLY. CLEAN AND REPLACE, TRY AGAIN TO START ENGINE.
MORE GAS IN SPARK PLUG HOLE TO GET GOING MAY BE ANOTHER ATEMPT AFTER CARBURATOR CLEAN UP.

What is the proper spark plug gap for a 1990 Chev K1500?


Usually tighten the spark plug to avoid generator combustion vapor excape because the vehicle speed may reduce. Alternately, the vehicle requires an amount of spark plug grip to combust or blast for engine to ingnite to a start. Tighten the spark plug as hardened as possible only making sure not to compromise the loosening requireements later if a problem were encountered. The precausion is not to have a loose spark plug on the engine bloc. A possible malfunction of such a sitution is an explosion where the spark plug becomes the bullet capablel of occuring soon after the engine is started or later when the driver accelerates at full capacity.

Service Engine light is on, gas milage is poor getting est. 9mpg city (average 1990 dakota est. 20 mpg city) I put in a new airfilter in car, did a oil flush, changed oil and oil is still clean after 50...


if you have'nt replaced those spark plugs and wires lately, you need to.and also, lucas fuel treatment, in my personal opinion,is the very best for unclogging fuel lined and injectors.it being below a 1999 model and your check engine light is on, you can have it coderead for free if you're near anautozone or advance automotive parts store. they will code read it and tell you why that check engine lights coming on.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Can't start 1990 nissan maxima. it's like it's not getting gas although I can smell gas


Thats because your engine is flushed with gas and not enough air from cranking the engine so much. If you smell gas, then the car is getting gas. Gas is not your problem. It might be your starter or check your ignition system such as spark plug, etc.....
