1999 Nissan Maxima wont turn over. It cranks, but wont start. It isnt the battery cause its new. My friend said it may be an electrical problem or fuel pump. How can i determine if i am getting a spark? My friend tried to start car and he did something with the fuel line to determine if it was getting pressure and it was. Not sure if it is enough pressure. He also used an older computer but it was only giving the error code for emissions. Any ideas?? Thanks.

99 blazer has been hard to start for awhile but will start after a few tries now wont start at all. It will turn over but sounds like it is not getting enough gas.

Our neighbor use to be a mechanic and has a code machine, He said it isnt throwing any codes and that it may need a computer. I am not sure this is correct.

So back to my real problem of the car not starting. My 1994 Ford Escort wagon has a crank but no start issue now that gives a sputter as if it isnt getting fuel. I have replaced the fuel pump and filter, and have also had the ignition module tested which tested good. I also took off the line at the pump and then at the rail and blew from the pump end and had no restriction in the line. I have no pressure gauge to test the actual pressure but i do get fuel at the schrader valve. I recently change

Fuel Problems I just purchased an 89 Ford F150 with a 302 and it will not start without ether or gas but once it starts it runs on its on and at idle is running rich (black smoke out of exhaust). I've replaced high pressure pump, fuel filter, pressure regulator, and cooling temp. sensor. With key on engine off it has 40 pounds fuel pressure.

I have a 1988 camper it's on a Ford F350 chasse with a 460 ci. engine. Has one gas tank with a low pressure pump in it and a high pressure pump on the frame rail. The truck runs for an hour and dies. at that point there is no fuel pressure or spark and the high pressure pump is hot. I replaced the high pressure pump and the fuel pump relay but it didn't help. Can anyone tell me why the high pressure pump could be getting hot and would it cause it to not have spark ?

I have a 1991 Acura Integra and it turns over but it will not start. Usually when this happens its because its either not getting spark, or not getting fuel. I'm pretty sure I got spark so I replaced the fuel pressure regulator because its easy. I got a start and idle out of it, but wouldn't start again after that. Possibly a relay? Possibly the fuel pump? If it is the pump, do I have to drop the entire tank to get to that? Any more simple things I could check before going into that? I don't kno

I also replaced the air filter and fuel filter.This truck has no pulling power either.
