Question about 1996 Audi A6

1 Answer

No start. Cranks ok. No spark. check engine light "on" p0322 code

My name is Carl. Car (Audi) sat for a year. Always ran fine. Fuel pump is working addition fuel from starting fluid makes no difference. There is no spark from any of the three coils. Checked all known fuses. Are there any that feed the coil that may be under the carpet or elsewhere? Any fusible links? Battery is good and cranks engine at normal speed. There is a code of p0322 and no registrable crank RPM on scanner. I do not have a VAG unit just an "old red brick" from snap-on running a generic test as I have no specific info for German vehicles. Thank you

Could be the distributor speed sensor which tells the coils when to fire.

SOURCE: 1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.

We will star a list of what is good.and what controls spark
1. crank sensor .you done it
2.ignition control module. located on the center of bulkhead,behind intake air hose
3.coils. you tested it.
4.ECM located under passenger side foot well

ECM no you got fuel,so lets leave it out
cranksensor okay you replaced it
ICM ignition control moduel.
no spark you cover everthing. has to be a loose or no contact connection somewhere, you covered it might want to tap on the ecm., or check the fuse for power to junction the ones in the hood area those can blow and not give power to ignition system

Does the 94 lincoln tc exec come with the pats system

if its been sat for years the fuel filter has probably deteriorated, and its now in the fuel lines. there is a number of parts that need changing before you start an engine that has not been run in a long time. fuel drained, fuel filter changed, oil and filter changed. fuel goes off after a year or 2. oil can turn to sludge in the sump. and block the oil pump. this can also affect the oil pressure sensor.

Everything has been checked ok but my subaru forester wont start. Engine cranks but car wont start. Is it a fuel pump problem?

Lets find out
  1. pull spark plug any one hold about 1/4 inch from engine block(with insulated pliers) and have someone crank the car. You should see a spark jump across to the engine repeatedly . if so ing system is ok
  2. You don't sat the year so pull the fuel line off where it enters the carb, throttle body or injectors whichever you have. put end in a jar crank eng just a little . if fuel squirts up into the jar pump is ok. should be a lot.
  3. This will tell you which system is causing the problem
Hope this helps Mike

I have a 2000 eclipse and the night before it ran fine. The next morning I went to start it and it cranks but that's about it. I checked for spark and after I cleaned the oil off there was spark, but...

Providing a accurate diagnosis is difficult. All previous advice could be correct.

I'd look into the fuel delivery issue first. The MPI (fuel pump) relay is controlled by the engine computer (ECU). If this is OK, your Check Engine Light should be off. A test with an OBD-2 code reader will tell if the ECU really is OK, and show any error codes.

If the ECU is OK, and the fuel pump is getting power, open the gas tank cap and see if this helps the car to start. (might be worn pump issues).

If you are actually getting fuel and spark, a no-start condition will generally throw an ECU error code, see above. There may be a crank or cam sensor that has failed.

The next thing to check is that the timing belt has not slipped a few teeth. This does happen. Your engine is probably a 4G64, and you MAY get away with it without bending valves. Or maybe not.

Engine cranks, but does not start

My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.
