Make sure you have tested for spark correctly with either a spark-tester or by pulling the starter with the plug out and grounded to the engine. If this is indeed the case, then, some disassembly will be required so you can check the coil module to flywheel air gap. If it is too wide, there will be no spark or it will be very weak and if it is too narrow, there could be posssible slight dragging/rubbing betweend the legs on the coil and the magnets on the flywheel. The correct air gap is about .012-.016"
(or the thickness of a normal business card).

Toyota 1991 AE 100 engine fuel pumping and we have spark but still wont start and run if we spray engine start while turning car over it will run but once that is gone it conks out again Stephen Bulger...


after cranking the engine over without firing- pull a spark plug out to see if it is dry-that would indicate that your not getting fuel into the combustion chamber or if it is wet with gas you may not be getting spark-cheers Denny

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

03 Altima 2.5, Wont turn over on cold start


First, change the fuel filter, and make sure the lines are good. Check the intake manifold bolts for tighness, check all vacuum lines. Best to have it running, wiggle them around and listen for a hiss. Lastly, change idle control sensor, if the other suggestions don't make a difference.

Starting it when hot


Sounds like your fouling the spark plug. When it cools down the carbon comes off the plug. I would suggest going to the next hotter plug.

96 vw jetta 2.0l will turn over but will not start


I had a problem like this on a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0L. I suggest you obtain a multimeter, a gas pressure gauge, and a used injector from a junk yard. You need to find if the car has spark if it is getting gas and if the injector is firing. Plug a used spark plug into say # 4 spark plug wire and ground end against the manifold or other ground. Have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. If there is spark then disconnect the electrical connector and plug in the used injector and hold in your hand. Have someone crank the engine and if it clicks as the engine revolves the injector is firing. Now if you have spark and an injector that clicks then put the pressure gauge in the upper line going to the injector manifold. Use a T so that the fuel can still flow into the manifold. If these three things check out. You need to also verify the engine is timed correctly and the timing belt did not slip a few teeth. I had a problem with my crankshaft sensor. I bought a new one and although I was getting about a .3 volt ac signal, I still had no spark at spark plugs. I wound up getting another new crankshaft sensor and read 3 volts ac from the new sensor. I then had good spark Hope this helps
