You may not have enough fuel pressure. Try some starter fluid and see what happens.

Check for proper fuel pressure. Without proper fuel pressure it will not start and no DTCs will be logged.

SOURCE: engine won.t turn

hi can you turn engine over by hand [engine s not sezied ] and how did you test the battery and how did you test starter because if the engines not seized and you put a jump lead from your positive terminal off a good battery to a starters main terminal and it wont, turn over the starters faulty or there is no engine earth so connect the other jump lead from the negative battery teminal to the engine block and try again it will turn over if the starters good if the starter turns over with the jump leads check the small terminal on the starters wire is live when someone turns the ignition key if it is and the starter does not turn over then the soleniod on the starter is faulty if no live at small terminal then the ignition switch or starter relay are faulty best of luck yates2104546

One of those relays supply power to the injectors. They fail, as well as the fuel pump relay, rpm sensor, and the main pump. Have you checked the trouble codes in the engine or ignition computers?

My 1991 grand marquis wont crank, it was running great on friday then sat morning it just spending i smell gas when im trying to crank it. i was thinking it as jump time


It may have jumped time. However, if you smell gasoline, it got flooded. Here is the lay of the land.
If it cranks, as in turning over but not starting. And you smell gasoline. The fuel is good, but there is not electrical spark going to the plugs. Bad coil. Cracked distributor cap. Moisture under the cap. Check this before you worry about the timing. You first have to test for ignition. Also don't pump the gas when starting it. See what happens. Also when the car is warm, never pump the gas. Also check the wire going from the distributor cap to the coil.
Good luck,
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

My vw will crank but will not start running i


Hi,


If the engine cranks over normally when you attempt to start you car, but the engine does not start, the problem may be NO FUEL, NO SPARK or NO COMPRESSION. The engine needs adequate fuel pressure, a properly timed spark and normal compression to start.


1) To find why the engine won't start, remove the air inlet tube from the throttle body, push the throttle open and spray a small amount of aerosol starting fluid into the engine. Crank the engine. If it has spark and compression but NO FUEL, it will start and run a few seconds before dying. If it does NOT start, it probably has NO SPARK.

2)Another method to check for spark is to pull a spark plug wire off of a spark plug (if it has plug wires, coil-on-plug ignitions do not) and place the open end of the plug wire near a metal surface on the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch for a spark. DO NOT hold the wire while doing this as it can shock you. If you see a spark, the problem is not spark, but most likely NO FUEL or NO COMPRESSION. If you do not see a spark, the problem is in the IGNITION CIRCUIT.

3)Proper fuel pressure is critical for fuel injected engines to start and run. You should hear the fuel pump inside the fuel tank buzz for a couple of seconds when the ignition is turned on (no buzz means the pump is not running and the engine is not getting fuel). You can smell the tailpipe for gasoline vapors after cranking the engine. If you smell gas, the problem is likely not fuel but NO SPARK. You can also remove the plastic cap and press the Schroeder valve test fitting on the fuel rail to see if there is any fuel pressure to the engine (not a very accurate test because fuel pressure must be at a certain level for the engine to start, for that you need a gauge). Even so, no fuel at the fuel rail would tell you fuel is not getting to the engine.


Thank you!!

My 1994 nissan pickup cranks but will not start


Need to check for fuel. Easy way to do this is wipe one of the plugs clean and dry and put back in without wire attched. Crank truck as if you were trying to start it. Pull plug out and check to see if it is wet. Should smell like gasoline. If so, recommend you replace the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. If not, you have a fuel problem.

My Dodge Caravan 1998, was running good, i parked the van for 25 minutes, When came back, don't wanted start. I already change the gas pump, the battery, crank sensor, spark plugs... What can i do now?


You need to do some analysis. An engine requires fuel and compression to start and run. If there is no compression, the sound of the cranking is very different. Since you did not mention that, I suspect that is not an issue.

Smell the exhaust pipe, then crank for a while. Smell the exhaust pipe again to see if there is a gasoline smell. (Don't put your head near the exhaust while cranking; if the engine happens to light off, or even if it just gets a little flame into the exhaust, you can be injured by the exhaust.)

If there is no increase in gasoline smell, you probably are not getting and fuel to the engine. You can try, in that case, spraying some starting fluid into the intake to see if that cause the engine to start briefly. If it does, you know for sure that the mechanical and the electrical aspects of the engine are functioning.

Pull a park plug out of the engine, put the plug back into the boot at the end of the plug wire, lay it on the metal of the engine. Then have one person crank the engine, and check to see if there is a stout spark in the gap of that plug. If not, you have an ignition problem: Bad coil, connection has fallen off the coil, bad ignition switch, etc.

One thing that can cause this kind of abrupt, complete failure is for the timing belt to break. If your engine has a timing belt, visually establish that it is going around with the engine.

Hi, I have a 1986 Chevy Van G20, V8, 5 Liter, 4 barrel carb. I cannot start the van, (all of a sudden it happened). It has a freshly charged battery, new starter, new fuel pump, new fuel filter, and has...


If it is getting spark and fuel check the timing. The timing chain may have jumped.Take out #1 spark plug and tap engine till the compression stroke comes up. To check just hold your finger over the plug hole and the compression will blow it out. Then rock crank by hand and set to top dead center. Take distributer cap off and see if rotor faces #1 cylinder. If you have spark to the plugs and the plugs are good and you have fuel timing or compression is all that is left.

My suv wont start, there seems to be no problem with tha fuses or anything else. no prob. with the starter, no prob with battery, it has gasoline. I really don't know hat it is.


From what you say the engine must be turning over at a normal speed. You need three things to start: fuel, spark, and compression. Check for fuel by removing a plug after trying to start and smell it for gasoline. Test for spark by leaving the plug removed and reattaching the spark plug wire and pressing its ground electrode to a metal ground. Insulate your contact with the plug and then have an assistant crank the engine while you look for a spark at the plug.
