SOURCE: i checked all fuses and are good. Not getting spark to start Grizzly 550 efi

check to see if the coil is getting power with a test light or multi-meter. If it is and you are not getting spark, the coil is most likely the cause of the issue.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas

Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

Bike bein sitting for a year and half and wont start now

Well if it has been sitting, check your main things ie: you have a good or new battery, all your fuses are intact,make sure you drain all the old gas out of the bike and try to clean the carbs with some carb cleaner. It sounds like if it is not a bad battery then your gas has turned bad on you in which case it wont start until you clean it all out and put fresh gas in it.Also make sure you clean the spark plugs and check for spark.Good luck.

1998 dodge neon turns over but wont start

Cars need three things to start. Fuel, Air, and Spark. Chances are it's either missing fuel or spark. If you smell fuel when you turn the engine over the that means you dont have any spark. If this is the case check the distributor to see if it is functioning. If you don't smeel gas then it's probably not getting fuel. In this case, start of By checking all of your fuses to see if any are blown. Mainly the fuel pump fuse and relay. These are the cheapest to start with. If your fuses are good and relay is funtioning then check the fuel pump itself. Hope this helps you and good luck.
