Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have fuel coming out of my spark plug opening, engine wont turn over. What do I need to look for?

Knew i had to change the battery this season, so did that immediately. Didn't turn over, so I thought the starter was involved; ordered and installed that but I have the same result. On a hunch, I pulled out the spark plug to look at that, and viola', fuel leaking out and a rapid rate..What next?

MOst likely you needing clean and rebuild the carburetor as it is leaking into the engine.

And with so fuel in the cylinder I would suspect that the oil is over filled with gas and need changing too.

Check the lead and connections between the coil and the plugs, the battery and the coil. If all else fails check the battery charge.

Truck wont start engine turns but wont fire


If the trucks turns over and does not seem like the battery is dead I would assume it is spark or fuel. Check spark plugs to make sure they spark. Pull one plug at a time hold it against side of engine and have someone turn the truck over for you. You should see bright spark from all spark plugs. If you do see spark then check your Fuel Pump to make sure it is getting power and is opperating correctly also check your fuel filter to make sure it is not plugged. Good luck, Hope this helps.

My frontier cut off and wont start change fuel pump and still wont start my sevice engine light dosent come on


When you changed the fuel pump, was it not getting any fuel pressure before that ?
Is it getting fuel pressure now ? And is it getting spark to the plugs ?
If the check engine light does not come on when you turn the key on I would check that fuse first.

Changed starter and alternator and still wont start on 1988 grand am


There are few things that you will have to check. 1) Is the battery properly charged. 2) Are you getting spark at the spark plugs, when you crank the car to start. 3) Is there proper fuel in the car. ---------------- If the battery is not charged properly the car will not start.Check the voltage of the battery .It should be exact 12volt. If there is no spark coming when you crank the engine then its the problem of either the spark plugs or the coil pack.the spark plugs gets power to spark from coil packs.Also check the fuel pump and fuel filter.If the fuel pump and fuel filter are worn out then it will not supply the fuel properly to the engine and this results in no-start problem. If all battery, fuel pump and spark plugs checked out OK then its time to check the wiring connections between the battery to starter and battery to alternator.This will help. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Wont start


Does the motor turn over? If it does, then you need to check to see if you have spark, gas and air. Check the air filter and replace if it is dirty. If the motor turnes over, remove a spark plug boot from one of the spark plugs and plug in a spare spark plug. Ground the plug on the engine and have some one turn over the engine. Do not touch the plug or wire when the engine is turning over. If there is no spark, I would say that the igniter in your distributor is fried or you may need to replace your plugs. Pull one out to see their condition. If you have spark, then remove the intake on the throttle body. Look down the throttle body and have some one push the gas peddal to the floor while turning the engine over. You should see fuel being injected to the intake. If you do not see any fuel, change the fuel filter if you have not done so recently. If the fuel filter has been changed then I would suggest a new fuel pump.
If the car does not turn over then check your battery voltage. If the battery is dead, it will not start. If you have 11+ volts then your starter is probalbly fried. Hope this helps.

Car wont start


I can only say that for the old cars even sitting for a year is not healthy, because most parts of engine, starting system, charging system will get corroded/deposited. Most probably you will need to change battery, motor oil, fuel, spark plugs, check the starter and alternator. Also check the fuel pump, fuel filter. First shot would be battery, fuel, spark plugs and starter.
Good Luck
