Hello bukskin007
I would say that 3 year old untreated gas combined with cold weather may be the problem. But you
can check for spark by removing a plug wire insert an old spark plug into the wire and ground the plug,have someone crank it over you should see spark to the electrode. And you could check for
fuel to the injectors by depressing the pin on the schrader type valve(tire valve) on the fuel rail after
cranking it over for a couple of seconds. But I would start with some fresh gas and maybe a fuel
filter. Hope this is helpful.

2003 Jeep Liberty- Starter is turning, but eng won't start (intermittent problem)


Battery could be weak. Not enough current to keep the engine firing. If battery is more than 3 years old then replace it. Other thing could be the fuel injector. Maybe need cleaning. Use injector cleaner additive in fuel. Get the right type for your engine and follow instructions on container.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly


I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

Problem starting engine


Sounds like Fuel or Fire is the problem. Check fuel pressure at the rail(s), needs to be minimum set point for your vehicle. (Autozone or similar can tell you the specifics) If that is good, then it is likely you have weak spark. 2002 says it is over 10 years (100K+ miles). If that is the case, and the Spark Plugs are original, then replace them all. Would not hurt to replace the wires too, but that can be put off as long as you do not damage them while replacing the plugs. Good luck.

1996 Renault Clio Club 1.2 Petrol. Batteries replaced in ignition key. Unable to start car. Battery ok, engine turns over ok but will not fire up. Prior to replacing the batteries there was no proble


You have either put the batteries in wrong or you have lost programming, see the dealer if you are 100% sure the new batteries where not installed incorrectly. What about the spare key???

I have a jaguar xj6 3.2 liter engine that hasnt been used for like 3 - 4 years. I just recently changed the battery and would not start it cranks but does not want to start. What do you think is wrong...


The fuel has definately gone bad. The new fuels they are refining do not stay as long as the old gasoline. You will need to drain the tank and refill with fresh fuel. Once you do that, remove the sparkplugs, remove the coil wire ( to prevent a fire ) and crank the engine for about 10 seconds. Replace the spark plugs and it should fire right off after that. Let me know if you need anything else.

All lights on the dashboard are on including battery engine


REPLACE BATTERY GROUND!!! They have caught on fire before due to old ground wires. Get an ebay ground wire kit and connect them in random places in engine compartment. I have 3 on the battery. Its better to be redundant then on fire!
