well first the fuel pump relay is bad, that is easily replaced. next you have no spark. the first thing you do is take the cap off the distributerand crank the engine. if it spins that tell syou thyat at least the tang or gear on the shaft of the distributor is ok and not broken. next thing is remove the #1 plug and use a 1/4 drive extension 6" long and turn the crank by hand until the #1 cylinder is top dead center(put the extension in the hole of head where the plug was and you should feel the top of the piston also make sure you can feel the top of the piston with half the extension this way you don't drop it in the cylinder with the piston at TDC(top dead center) the rotor of the distributor should be pointed at the #1 firing position. IF it does not that means your timing is off and you need to retime it by taking off timing cover and either replacing the belt/chain or gears. now if you do not have a distributor and you have a coil pack there could be only 2 things that won't give spark. either a bad coil or your altenater is bad(the battery is responsible for starting not running the vehicle like alot of people assume. the altenator energizes the coil which inturngives spark. hope this helps you please rate this thanks

Sounds like it has jumped timing, dont know which engine you have so could be chain or belt.

SOURCE: I have a 93 mercury topaz 4cyl 2.3L that stalls

It sounds to me like you replaced everything but the most likely cause of a stall while driving...The crank sensor.

I have a 1987 ford ranger the engine turns over but it wont start


Spark at plugs? Fuel filter? Pressure on injector delivery line? Pressure relief valve? You may be able to measure fuel pressure at the pressure relief valve location. and return line. If you have spark, I'd say it's a fuel supply problem

06 Stratus shut down on highway replaced starter plugs wires n coil pack won't start


First thing you need t poo do is determine if it is a spark problem or a fuel or compression problem.pull a plug out hook it back up to a plug wire and touch the bottom of the spark plug to the block or a bolt.Then have someone try to start the car.if it sparks then it's most likely the fuel pump.to see if it is a fuel problem get some starting fluid and spray it into the intake manifold then try to start it make sure you have put the plug back in first.if it runs then stalls replace the fuel pump relay if it still doesn't start replace the fuel pump

1988 VW FOX no power to fuel pump and fuel pump relay


The problem is most likely the ground that would explain the gauge not working and the pump not working you can run a wire from the metal frame or metal body to the metal sending unit on top of the tank and see if the gauge works first.

Have an 85 chevy 4x4. I just had the 305 engine rebuilt with a new intake and carb. It was working fine for a couple days and one morning I went to start er up and the engine just cranked and cranked,...


When you turn the key front. Listen for the fuel pump to prime. It should sound like a low humming noise that lasts about 3 seconds. If it does then check for spark by pulling one of our sparkplug wires and putting an extra spark plug in it. Place the end of the wire down somewhere safe and crank the motor. If you can't seek spark in the plug, it is most likely your coil failing. So, check fuel pump and fuel pump relays first, then spark. Good Luck.

02 caviler.. cranks but will not start.. have replaced crank sensor,fuel relay sensor.ignition module as well as spark plug module... and replaced battery


Squirt starting fluid in intake and try to start if it starts and then dies you have a fuel delivery problem. Make sure you check the fuses for a blown fuse namely fuel pump or fuelpump relay. If it doesnt start after squirting starting fluid in the intake check for spark at the plug wires and coil.

How do i check my EFI Relay?


Buy a new relay or switch one, then pull one at a time pulg in the new one to find out wich one isn't working.Just because there's power to it doesn't mean anything,it could be that the contacts are burnt together and theirfore not giving you the "injector pause" good luck.
