    Does the engine try to fire at all? Maybe try to start and run just a few seconds and stop? Or does it just turn over and do nothing?

2001 1200 sportster cranks and backfires, carb and fuel good, could it be crank sensor?


Wasted spark system. If fuel and electrical is all good/correct it is often the case in these symptoms that motor cycle spark plugs that although looking good and firing outside of the engine are breaking down and will not fire under compression pressures on a power stroke but will fire unburned fuel on the unpressurized exhaust stroke when the plug again fires in a wasted spark ignition system and when so firing the result is a backfire, usually quite loud.

Engine won't crank. What could be the problem


Hi Scott, What do you mean by 'won't crank?' Is the engine turning on the starter but refusing to start or is the engine failing to crank (turn over). If its the latter, try replacing the battery. If its the first option then send more details and we'll try to help out. Regards John

When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire, or it just won't crank? If it just won't crank, you could be having an issue with the starter relay. The often become intermittent before failure. Many owners do not know there is a starter relay because it was added as a recall item i order to protect the iginition switch from burnout. The starter relay is located in the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.


Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

Remove starter from engine leaving the wire conected, earth out the strter to the engine and pres the starter button, if the starter spins, it is likely you have a starter clutch problem, this test will eliminate the starter being at fault, presume u have checked battery condition
