I have a 2001 ford crown vic 4.6 I have a crank no start and scan tool not working on this one
You will need spark, fuel and correct timing. Check the inertia switch in the trunk first. turn off then back on. Take off the plastic engine cover, turn on the key, depress fuel rail schrader valve and fuel should come out WARNING: fuel is possibly at almost 50 psi! If fuel is there, you have fuel. Pressure could be low, but not likely. Does it start now? if no, remove a spark plug coil, put an old correctly gapped plug in it and ground the plug (near the threads). Is there spark? if no, ignition issue, if yes, does it start? If no, reset computer by removing negative battery cable from battery for 3 minutes. Put back on. Does it start? You just have to keep troubleshooting until you have fuel and spark present. It is a remote possibility if you have these 2 things that timing could be off from a timing chain failure. Take #1 plug out *farthest plug forward. Does engine build full compression when the harmonic balancer indicator reaches zero? If yes, it should be running. Other possibilities; Fuel contaminated. Low fuel pressure. Bad or clogged injectors. Bad coils. These are less likely. Good luck to you!
Honda gx160 qh26 wont start, backfires thorugh exhst, new plug, re&re carb,valves in. .006 ex. .008 , sos please
The Honda GX160 is a single-cylinder multipurpose engine, so it doesn't have a timing belt, fuel filter, or any other wires other than the single spark plug wire and a ground. I'm having the same trouble with my Honda GX160. Spark is good, compression feels a bit lacking though, I haven't measured it. I've heard that the carburetor might be the cause, either needing to be cleaned or replaced as a whole. Dunking it in CLR works wonders, and if that doesn't work, you could probably find a new carburetor pretty cheaply.
Can a 2006 saturn VUE 4cyl, 2.2l front wheel drive be flat towed?
if it is an automatic transmission it will need to towed with the front wheels off the ground
Short distance towing with any automatic transmission is ok but it has to be remembered that the gears/bearings will be without lubricating oil
the user manual for all automatic cars states to remove the drive shaft before towing and as that is impracticable with a front wheel drive car , best to tow with the wheels of the ground
consider putting it on a car trailer behind you MH as an alternative operation
