Not much info to go on here (like YEAR/MODEL!!!!)

If you have carbs (instead of fuel injection, see why the YEAR/MODEL is important?), pull the float bowl(s) and see if it has gas in it.

If not, gas isn't getting to the carb(s).

Could be plugged fuel line/filter, or the gas tank isn't venting.
I even had a bike that the o-ring in the petcock swelled up, and blocked the fuel flow.

If gas IS getting to the carbs is could be a plugged up jet(s) in the carb(s).

Four cylinder engine with four spark plugs

A four-cylinder engine has four spark plugs. An important part of the power-generating process, each spark plug is responsible for igniting the fuel and air mixture inside of its cylinder. At the beginning of a stroke, a piston moves downward in its cylinder, drawing in a precise mixture of gas and air. After reaching the bottom, the piston moves back up, heavily compressing the mixture. Once it reaches the top, the spark plug ignites the mixture, and the explosion forces the piston down into the cylinder. This mechanical movement is harnessed and used to power the vehicle. Some large engines may have two spark plugs per cylinder to ensure that complete combustion is achieved and maximum power is generated.

Some times engine will not start i have to turn ignition of &on several times before starts fuel pump and filter been replaced. there is plenty of fuel preasure. fuel is reaching cylinders

What make , model an year vehicle ? You need to explain a little better what's happening ! When you turn the key to the start position what happens ? Does the starter spin the engine ? The engine doesn't start an run ? A crank no start or no-crank no start ? How do you know there is plenty of fuel pressure ? Did you hook - up a fuel pressure gauge ? An how do you know fuel is reach cylinders ? Did you do fuel injector fire test ?

Hi my jag xjr 4lrt wont start it has fuel supply it has a sprak it turns over but will not start any ideas ive been told it may be the imobiliser

It takes three things to make an engine run. Fuel, spark and air. If you have fuel and spark at the cylinder, there's no reason it should not start. One or the other is missing. The only way to tell if the fuel and spark are reaching the cylinder is to pull a spark plug. Try to start the engine then pull a plug. If you are getting fuel, the spark plug will be wet and smell of gasoline. If it's dry, no fuel is reaching the cylinder. Put the plug wire back on the spark plug and lay the plug down where you can observe it while cranking the starter. If you are getting spark, yo will see the voltage arc across the tip of the spark plug. Perform this test and find out which one is missing and then you can trace down the problem.

Wuts the best way to find out whether or not im gettin any fuel to a cylinder . i pulled a plug wire, with the hope i would see sum fuel on the electrode .is there a better way?


The way I do it is unplug the fuel return line. If the there is any fuel coming in that mean the fuel pressure is fine and it is reaching the cylinder.

Car turns over will not start

  1. Check to see the condition of the spark ur getting from the distributor. If it is not sufficient, let an auto-electrician look at ur distributor
  2. Are u certain fuel is being reached to the cylinders. If not check to see if there's a fuel blockage or any other reason that might casue the fuel to not reach the cylinder.
  3. If the timing belt has severed, the camshaft will not be able to turn inorder for fuel to be entered into the cylinder. I doubt this might be the problem though.
