1987 Pontiac fiero when trying to start backfires

Sounds like an ignition timing issue. consult a manual to find out what the correct timing is and then check your timing to make sure it is correct.

If you have good spark and good fuel pressure and arent unable to check fuel injector for output, you might want to spray some starting fluid into intake and see if vehicle starts. If it doesnt start at all there may be engine mechanical issues( jumped timing chain). Also, if catakitic is plugged it will not let vehicle start.. Start with your basic: spark( make sure your spark plug wires are routed correctly), fuel pressure, engine mechanical and catalitic.

My 1845c won't start even when I use starting fluid

Are you getting a spark at each plug?
As you probably know, an engine needs a STRONG spark at the RIGHT time and in the RIGHT order.
Causes of a weak spark are many, but the coil is the first place to look.
The right time is down to the timing of the engine and the position of the pistons when the firing takes place.
The correct order requires the leads to be connected to the plugs in the correct way.
Have you removed or replaced something and either put it back incorrectly or the replacement is the wrong one or faulty. Even brand new parts can be defective.
I am ruling out fuel because the starter fluid is the fuel until it all burns away.

Lancer timing

-Try one more time. When pull out the plug, make sure ground it.
If there is spark shown. It could be the rotor point to the wrong cylinder plug wire.

Engine turning but car does not start.

Hi, it's either an electrical problem, or the fuel system.
Check the ignition system first. Start by removing the spark-plugs, get someone to turn the engine over on the starter, whilst you check for sparks at the plugs. It's always worthwhile to clean and reset the plugs at this time. Also check the appearance of the central insulator, if its a light greyish brown colour, then you fuel system is correctly set, thus unlikely to be the source of the problem. If, on the other hand its a sooty matt black colour, check your air-cleaner, this may be clogged and will need to be replaced. An oily, gloss black colour, usually indicates a worn engine, this will need to be overhauled or replaced.

Other possibilities that come to mind:

  • no gas in the tank or blocked fuel filter
  • bad or missing spark plugs and/or plug wires
  • engine timing
  • broken/slipping timing belt

Hope it helps.....

I pulled the head on my 92 Honda Accord EX so I could replace some damaged exhaust valves. After reassembling the engine and components the engine wouldn't start. It cranks and cranks but doesn't get any...

Are you sure that there is no spark, have you checked with a timing light? Are the wires on the coil connected correctly? Is the ignition module plugged in correctly and are all the wires on the distributor tight and correctly located? Try another ignition module from a system that is known to be working.

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires

If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,

I replaced the spark plugs, gaped at .35, replaced wiring, took each wire and replaced from the one I replace so the firing order should be correct, replaced the cap and rotor. The had been running before...

If the engine is balking or kicking back while you are cranking it over, chances are you may still have gotten the wires on the cap wrong. You may have the correct order but started in the wrong spot.
Take a drinking straw and put it into the #1 plug hole (don't let it fall in) and rotate the engine by hand 'till the timing mark on the front pulley lines up with the "0" on the timing scale and the straw is at it's highest position. Look at the rotor. it should be pointing roughly at the R/F headlight. Mark the position with a crayon etc on the outside of the housing and replace the cap. That is the #1 plug wire position...the remainder of the wires are installed in the same direction the rotor turns...153624 or 18436572 (if 8cyl). If the rotor points 180 degrees away from where I said, turn the engine one more revolution.

What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from starting? The plugs all spark, the fuel pump gives gas to the carb, Ive changed all plugs cap and rotor and have tried spraying starter fluid directly into...

It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.
