I have an on-going problem with my 92 accord not starting, and turning off while Im driving and then not starting back up right away waiting sometimes about 2 hours. It is a manual 5sp.

To fix it ive tried the following: First I replaced the distributer cap and rotor. 2nd, replaced the spark plugs, 3rd replaced the distributor, 4th replaced the spark plug wires, 5th replaced the igniter, 6th replaced the ignition coil.

What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from starting? The plugs all spark, the fuel pump gives gas to the carb, Ive changed all plugs cap and rotor and have tried spraying starter fluid directly into carb. There seemed to be alot of oil gunk in the plug wells and I cleaned them and sprayed starter fluid directly into them and nothing. It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over?

I have fuel, and fuel pressure. Have replaced cap and rotor, they were kinda corroded but I've seen worse running. The car sometimes had ruff idle when the intermittent ignition problem did happen. Sometime hard stating then rough idle. Now the car won't start and has no spark. The previous owner had the car at a garage where they said they changed ignition module in the past. Knowing this after I changed the cap and rotor and still had no spark I changed the coil and still nothing, I purchased

Hello, My 1991 dodge dakato was running great before I changed the spark plugs & wires because they were old. Now, it seems to be running not nearly as good. It seems like their is a loss of power or hesitation. I know the fire order is correct. I even gapped the new spark plugs. It has a v8 5.2 engine. I was wondering if it could be that the new wires has such large boots on them, they are touching one another. I also changed the cap & rotor and it still is not right running. The first time I c

My car will not accelerate properly...it stalls when pushing the gas...the air filter looks clean...so I changed the spark plugs and it drove a little better...sometimes on take off it would mess up but sometimes it would act fine...now that I've changed the spark plug wires, rotor, and distributor cap the car will not start...the battery seems to be surging but the battery is good.

I just did a few repairs all at once. I replaced the oil pan gasket, oil filter and oil. I replaced the transmission fluid filter, transmission pan gasket and transmission fluid. I put in new spark plugs, spark plug wires, rotor and rotor cap. I flushed the cooling system and changed the heater hoses, the upper & lower radiator hoses, the temperature sensor and the thermostat. I also replaced the valve cover gasket. When the engine is started now. There is a loud tapping noise that seems


The tappets are usually oiled via hydraulic lifters that pump oil up the push rods. I'm assuming you have the gas engine V-6 or V-8. When you changed the valve cover gasket(s), did you do anything else under the valve covers? It seems unlikely that ... 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Won't start My 1992 Lexus SC300 will not start. It turns over like it is going to but never quite gets there. There is spark coming from the coil but the spark plug that I pulled does not seem to be firing. The plugs and wires along with the cap and rotor were just changed less than 1000 miles ago. I've tried a new coil, cap, rotor and even the ignitor module. Still does the same thing. Any ideas?

Miss fires when it's cold and when it get's hot. seems to be after the crank sensor was changed. I changed the coil,distributer,plugs,wires,cap,rotor,fuel pump,fuel filtre,checked the grounds,had it on the computer at the dealership 3 times and it just says miss fire in cylinders 2,4,6 but it doesn't say the cause. it all started happening after the crank sensor went and was replaced. anyone got a clue? I'm thinking on changing the crank sensor again to see if it was a bad one that was put in be


Your right to replace the sensor again. It's like a bulb, some bulbs working 20 years, some only 3 minutes. Make sure to install the new one in the right way and that is no mud, old oil or so on the rotor that supports the sensor. Keep all parts clea ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

My car gets horrible gas mileage since it sat for a while. Ive changed the spark plugs,wires, rotor and cap, fuel filter, and oil change since and nothing helped. Example: I'll be driving and when I let off the gas then try to accelerate it sputters to get going. It also puts off a bad gas smell. I've changed the fuel pump within a year also. Thank You.

It is a fuel problem. The engine is 'hunting' and needs to be set up in a diagnostics machine, especially if it is fuel injected. If it is normally aspirated you might get away with blowing compressed air through all the accessible channels and port ... 1998 Mazda Protege

My 1994 Nissan Altima started shaking really bad. I gave it a basic tune up. I replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor and gave it an oil change. I left the car running and checked to see if there was a misfire. I pulled up each spark plug wire one by one and when I pulled them up 3 out of 4 of them wanted to "die out" which is suppose to happen. So whats going on with the one that didn't want to "die out".

95 volvo 940 turbo has had intermittent starting issue. Replaced crank position sensor and cleaned idle air control valve and problem mostly solved, but has now (6 weeks later) same problem but worse. Won't start at all, but if I hold gas pedal part way down it tries to start but acts flooded and won't quite start. Replaced IAC with junkyard part which tested ok, but no change. Plugs, cap & rotor & wires seem ok. Using small amount of stater fluid does not seem to help. Tried to test fuel pressu

I have a 1994 GMC K1500 sierra sle 5.7L V8 with 214,000km. The other day I started the truck, let it warm up for about 10 minutes and put it in reverse to back out of the driveway and it had no power and almost stalled. I put it in neutral, it seemed to rev up fine so I tried reverse again and same thing, no power and wouldn't rev up at all while in gear. Today I just changed the fuel filter, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor and changed the oil and it still doing the same thing. I had to p

My 1993 Toyota T100 has a running issue. it happens when its wet out. truck starts and runs well till it gets to temp. while driving it stops revving at 1,800 rpm and does not let the throttle operate again till 1,500 rpm. there's no stuttering or shaking. it just seems like a limiter is on it. I have replaced the plugs, wires, cap and rotor and it cleared up for a few days. the issue only seems to come out when it rains now.

I have a 1990 Ford Bronco 5.0L Eddie Bauer. It takes a while to keep the truck idle but when it warms up it seems to stay idle but will die every once in a while. I have to feather the gas pedal to keep it from dying. I changed the spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. I also gave it a oil change and new air filter. I also noticed that I can't get the truck to go past 2500 r.p.m. It drives but lacks alot of power. I just bought this truck about a month ago.


I cannot see any of the other comments that have possibly been posted to you by others. It sounds as though the fuel pump is not "feeding" enough gas and is peetering out at high speeds.....by chance have you done a fuel pressure check? Also, the fue ... 1990 Ford Bronco

I have a 1999 dodge avenger and the problem is it doesnt seem to start all the time. we drove it just fine to work and then we shut it off an it wouldnt even try to start. we found no spark and changed the rotor and cap. it started back up but then a day later it started doing it again. we were thinking module or some kind of sensor i believe we are still not getting spark.


This has happened to me. find the big grey module on the drivers side under hood. this module sits right next to fuse box. have someone tap on that module while you crank engine. if car now starts,you will have to replace engine ecm which is the modu ... Dodge Avenger
