Check the "shear" pin & replace. Sounds like engine is out of timing. Easy fix

Hi Peter, check the valve clearances. There is a decompressor on the camshaft that won't work if the valve clearances are to great or a rocker post is loose. Regards Phil.

If i understand you right the little square piece is the solenoid, and it should be replaced if it is making a buzzing noise

Two things come to mind. If the plug base is too deep it could bottom out on the piston, and if the cam/shaft timing is off by a tooth or more it could also cause this problem. Check it out.

My 2000 cadillac deville wont start. I bought a new battery. New alternator and a new ground wire under the hood. My starter was tested and is good. Ive been trying to jump it off andnothing will come on


On your car the crank circuit includes a crank fuse, the theft deterrent relay, the key switch, and the PCM in addition to the starter itself.
All of these components would need to be tested to find the problem.

Driving down highway when engine just stopped. Cranks, has gas, no repairs lately. Toy 4AF carb engine. Has been burning oil for last 50K miles and now has 180K. I guess things to look for are spark on...


Check the fuel pump, fuel filter and if fuel is getting to carb. If is not fuel problem, then is usually distribution, replace sparks and check distributor.

My car wont start. I replaced my battery but it still wont start. Tested the alternator and it is good. Something might be draining the battery but not sure what?


Does the engine spin over and not start? Or turn the key and nothing happens?
New spark plugs and wires won't have anything to do with the starter and battery keeping the engine from spinning when you turn the key.
Need more specific explanation. Thanks,
Scott

My '97 ford taurus isnt kicking over while tryn to start it up


Anything done to car, or happened recently that might affect this?
If starter fluid doesn't work, and starter is cranking normally (too fast may point to a timing belt broke, too slow may mean battery run down and not producing sufficient spark), there's still a problem in your ignition. Pull a sparkplug or two. After cranking a little they should be wet with gas. Check for compression while a plug is out: hold your finger over plug hole when cranking. You should feel pressure buildup and release over and over as long as cranking.
A properly timed engine needs spark, fuel, and compression to start. Keep reviewing your procedure. Something is not right.
You may want to have the computer scanned for possible trouble codes. Check plug wires for proper routing. Were plugs gapped right?

98 dode ram wont crank no spark


May have no spark due to a bad crank sensor, which is responsible for spark when it gets a pulse through the cars' computer.

2004 Kia Sedona wont start but i can hear starter.


if the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem
