Start with new plugs and wires, if that don't fixya, try new coil/cap. If that don't fixya tow it to a dealer.

What engine does your truck have ? does it have The Central Sequential Fuel Injection (Central SFI) (4.3L, 5.0L, 5.7L) ? Is your fuel pressure with in (60-66 psi). if not , will not start . I find this a lot also fuel pressure regulators leaking will cause a hard start . https://youtu.be/09_wQ9yQ85A

Why my 2005 ba ford falcon wont start?


Its either no spark or no gas. Remove the fuel line and carefully crank it over..are you getting any fuel? If not possibly clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump. If yes, are the spark plugs firing. Remove number one plug lead hold close to any metal surface on engine, crank over ..spark there..strong or weak spark? No spark check coil and associated parts.

First you need to retrace your steps...before you changed the timing chain and gears did It run ok ? what was initial problem, next put a fuel pressure gauge on your fuel line and cycle your key on to run pos, dont have to try start, just run and see if you have fuel press during the 3 sec or so pump cycles, should be around i think 35-45 roughly for tbi. so if you have good fuel pressure , then you say you have good spark, then your problem is either ingition or valve timing, did your dist.come loose, did you properly install chain & gears and align timing marks. did you have somethine else a part on it too like intake, dist, ? get back with me I'll try to help you.

1997 chevrolet suburban with 7.4 engine will not start after being turned off without waiting 10 minutes.


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Chevy express 1500 will n ot start, fuel pressure good 60 psi! The coil is sparking good! the engines turn over strong. it seem to do this whenever it rain!


check for spark at the spark plugs, there have been a lot of trouble with the distributor caps and rotor. Be sure it has the correct AC Delco spark plugs and good wires. Be sure to use AC Delco or GM parts.

97 dodge pickup with 5.2 I have strong spark out


If you have a strong spark at the coil and plugs are not then it sounds like plug wires. They can degrade over time.

98 dodge ram 1500 5.2 v8 will crank but not turn over, and smells strongly of gas. i am getting spark, so thats not the problem. if its related to the fuel filter then is the filter inside the tank or on...


Verify you have good strong spark at the plugs. Also you want to check the fuel pressure with a gauge. If it's within specs and you have good spark, it could be flooded. Once in a while these trucks will flood the plugs if the secondary ignition has not been replaced in a while. Try starting the truck with the throttle wide open (clear flood mode) and see if it fires. If not, look at the plugs and replace as needed.
