The spark should be nice blue, if it is orangey red there is a ignition circuit problem.if that's ok then it has to be timing of spark or valves. In extreme circumstances the exhaust could be blocked or even too clear, back pressure to high or too low can cause poor starting.

SOURCE: there is a good spark good compression clean fuel

Hi there... Here is some food for thought.... If you have good spark, good fuel and compression , check the rectifier, If this is faulty you will get the same symptom's  The rectifier is generally located under the seat and is one of the first things coming off the battery,  ITs primary function is to control the power coming from the battery to supply a steady and cleaner power supply to all electronic components so.. you may have spark but your timing will be either lagged or premature before the spark can ignite it. ITs generally not an expensive part and is usually over looked in most cases like this...

SOURCE: My 1980 ski doo citation has good spart and great

The problem may or may not be timing. You say it's getting good spark but is it great? if the compression is as good as you say and your spark isn't strong it can be put out by strong comp. if it is timing i would get shop manuel for it. i can't find a micro phish on it so i'm not really sure where to tell you to start.

SOURCE: my fz 400 wont start. it has fuel, spark and good

if it has fuel, and "Good spark" and good compression then it has to be the carbs. Can it be push started? if you can push-start it, then i would suggest first purchase a can of Sea Foam @ Autozone $10 pour in 1/3 can to 2 gallons fuel, change or clean fuel filter and fill up the filter with "a little" bit of Seafoam push start it, then if it fires up, drive it around the block until your sure it will run somewhat,it probably will run rough at first until it works its way into your fuel system, then get on it once in awhile on an open highway for about 10 to 15 miles. if theres anything clogging up any ports or jets this stuff works pretty good... it worked for me after driving about 11 miles. it was still hesitating the whole ride but all of the sudden it spit something out and then all my hp came back...make sure your spark is a really nice big bluish spark...if it is redish purple then i"d check the pulse generators, they're probably bad.

SOURCE: my bike wont start

Hello and happy thanksgiving.
As you must know the fuel injection on this is electronic, the fuel injector is turned on and off very quickly by the computer control module referred to as the "ECM" to supply a metered amount of fuel to the engine as needed based on the inputs from the various sensors such as the throttle position and other sensors, this is called injector "PULSE" to check and see if your injector is pulsing you will need to buy a little tool called a "NOID" injector tester, it plugs into the injector connector and when the engine turns over the Noid will flash very quickly. Also you have never mentioned whether you have had the ECM (computer control module) tested for fault codes, when it senses a problem or a sensor that is out of normal range it will record a code for this fault. You will need the factory tool (called a scanner) to do this test it is essential that this test be performed or more wasted money can be spent on replacing perfectly good parts. You can buy a Noid tester from any auto parts store like NAPA, just make sure your bike has the standard BOSCH fuel injector connector, it the connector is a different design then you will need the factory tool.

SOURCE: rm 250 wont start off kick

Don't know if it is water cooled or not, but it sounds like you may have a problem with oil or water getting into the combustion chamber and fouling the spark plugs. Kicking doesn't produce the amount of rpm that you need to fire up a weakly firing plug. I'd check the plugs condition first and replace if needed, and then figure out why its smoking.

Why wont my chainsaw start

First, pull a compression check, if you get under 115 lbs there is your problem. If the compression is good, use a 3-point spark tester to check the amount of spark. If good, you have fuel delivery issues. Check fuel lines, fuel filter and lastly the carburetor itself.

What will make the truck not start up but its getting fire, it wants 2 start but not turn over

Three systems in engines:

Fuel delivery (fuel mixing with air to burn and making it to the spark plugs)

Ignition (lighting the fuel on fire)

Compression Building up pressure to fire the fuel

It is possible your engine could have low compression if it has ever been run low on coolant or oil. The engine might spin or turn over but not have fire at the spark plugs. If you are correct that the spark plugs have fire but it will not "kick" or run then fuel delivery is where I would start. See if your fuel rail has fuel in it by pressing the fuel rail valve:
If you have fuel there under a good amount of pressure see if one of the plugs smells like gas after cranking. If so the problem is not the fuel, move on.
If you don't have fuel at the Schrader valve the problem is in the fuel pump and system.
refer to a manual on how to remove the pump from the tank and replace it. This problem has signs before it goes bad. Hard starts and running rough when hot.

Good luck

Wont start. some coil packs are not firing.

Replace and/or check the the coil packs for continuity associated with the cylinders that are not firing.

Also, check for fuel delivery using a fuel pressure gauge on the rail, and verify that the fuel injectors are firing using a noid tester or a stethoscope on the fuel injector to check that they are clicking.

Try to add starter fluid to the intake manifold through the throttle body to see if it starts that way, signalling a fuel delivery problem if it starts right up.

Good luck on this repair.

I have fuel and I have spark why wont it start?

Not sure what vehicle you have, but...
You need spark at the spark plugs (Check a few or all of them)
Even if you have fuel pressure, you also need the injectors to "fire", so there are two stages for the fuel delivery, fuel pump and injector fire.
You need good compression on your cylinders, and finally, if your timing belt or chain has slipped or broken, you wont be able to start it.

My 1996 crown vic will not start motos turns over and trys to start but wont I have replaced intake manifold spark pulgs. motor has spark

basics,,,air,,fuel,,spark,,compression,,timing,,,pull a few plugs,,smell them for fuel,,if dry,,,take snorkel off throttle body,, open throttle body or flap half way,,spay a little starting fluid or injector spay into throttle put the snorkel back on see if motor fires up,,if so then ck fuel delivery & pressure,,,,hope it helped

Suzuki gn125 wont start. checked carb, cdi, coil. got compression and spark but it wont fire. timing been checked. i have ran out of ideas.

Check the valve adjustment. If a valve is standing open just a little, the compression will be too low to start the engine. Check fuel delivery by dribbling a little gasoline into the carb and try starting the bike. If it starts and runs for a second or two, you're not getting fuel into the cylinders. Check you carb again.

No spark?

well more questions then answers but a step closer.. good fuel pressure? check the throttle body when someone turns it over. did you try starter fluid ( put on the air cleaner for it, so it dont back fire) anyway if it runs on starting fluid then its fuel delivery system. . Basics three things to run. air, fuel, spark. you have all of these? in good supply? then look to compression and condition of dist. cap and rotor.

Spark, but not firing

Three things are required for an engine to run: 1] Fuel/Air Mixture; 2] Compression; and 3] Ignition (Spark). Since you advise spark is present, and barring major mechanical malfunction we'll assume compression is also... which leaves fuel. The easiest way to verify a fuel delivery problem is to remove air cleaner and spray starter fluid or carb cleaner into the air intake and try starting with substitute "fuel". If it trys to run briefly, then you are not getting gas to the engine. Check the fuel pump fuses, as these can blow. The newer cars also have a impact detection device that will shut down fuel delivery if a frontal impact has occurred, but these sometimes are too sensitive and misfire from a minor bump. That would have to be reset by a qualified tech. If the fuses are good, you might need to replace the fuel pump, but check the wiring connections first. The Durango probably has a submersible electric pump mounted inside the gas tank, and they can be a challenge to change out, plus the new high pressure injection pumps are a little pricey for what they are, but if you gotta have it, you GOTTA HAVE IT!
Good luck with the Durango... Hope this helped.
