what kind of car is this? i would inspect for fuel pump bleed down,if its efi,do so by instaling a fuel pressure gauge,start vehicle and monitor pressure, than shut the vehicle off the pressure should loose no more than 5psi in 5 min. what kind of car is this? i would inspect for fuel pump bleed down,if its efi,do so by instaling a fuel pressure gauge,start vehicle and monitor pressure, than shut the vehicle off the pressure should loose no more than 5psi in 5 min.
There are two main types of no-starting conditions. Cranks but won't start, and no cranks no start. For a no crank no start condition it is best to suspect a problem with the starter circuit. For a cranks but won't start you have to remember that an engine requires the things to run gas, air, and spark. So what type of condition do you have?
you might have blow out a head or over headed the engine
If your 1999 Ford Mustang cranks but won't turnover you may have a problem with the starter, the solenoid, or the alternator.
could be disdributor
Most of the time when a small engine cranks over, starts and then dies shortly afterward the problem is in the fuel system. Normally it is caused by bad gas that has gummed up the fuel system. (normally in the carburetor) If this is the problem you will probably need to take the carburetor off and clean it out.
could be the starter or the solenoid, they arer pron to heating up especially when using headers, peace
Usually when hot? Could be a starter going bad
It cranks the engine over in order for it to start running.
Check your flywheel ring gear. I had a similar problem with my mower and found excessive wear on both the starter drive and ring gear. Be sure to check all the way around the ring gear, mine was only worn in one small area.
Stuck relay or the starter is wired incorrectly.
dude trust on this. its your starter motor, it happened to me once. it will just cranks and it feels like the battery is dying out but nope its your solenoid on your starter motor that is worn out. best of luck dude
If an engine has: * compression * fuel * ignition spark delivered in the right quantities and at the right time while the engine is being "cranked" by the starter motor, it will start. Your problem now is to find out which isn't working right. I always suggest starting fluid to help isolate the problem
IT is not getting one or more of the following: spark, fuel or compression. Assuming it cranks. If it doesn't crank, it is probably an electrical problem such as starter, battery or alternater.
This is not a good descripton of the problem. Cranks? you mean the starter works? But the engine is not ? Yes, it stalled...and now it acts like it wants to turn over (cranks), but will not start. The starter does work. The engine will not fire up and run. The battery has ample voltage and amperage. Could an "overheating" problem cause this...wouldn't it start up after it cooled down if it overheated? Thanks for the help.
i hit he curb and put a hole in the oil pan ,i replace the oil pan now the engine cranks but doent start. what could be the problem
its not your ignition its your crankshaft sensor that's the same problem i had.
Its a common problem, generally because the fuel pump is dead, or the fuel filter is clogged.
I assume that the engine cranks but will not run. Take a spark plug wire off the plug and hold it one inch from the engine while someone cranks it. If fire jumps then you have ignition. That being the case, spray a small amount of carburetor cleaner into the air intake. If the engine starts and dies then you have a fuel problem.
you have a bad solineiod in your starter go get a new starter
Would be in the distributer or the ignition module
No, The compression test is done as the starter cranks the engine
The problem is in spark, or fuel. Rarely the Crank angle sensor. ECU could be going bad too.
