My 89 Ford Taurus SHO wont start. it appears that my fuel pump does have that," second or so on time " when turning the key on.

I have a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4L that wont start. I have done fuel pressure test 50-55 psi and plugs have good spark. However when done light test on injectors there is no response so there is no pulse. Gynesis scan tool shows U1016 and earlier scan showed P1626c which was security problem. I have already performed the 10 minutes key on reset for the security light. Any other ideas why it wont start and/or why no pulse at injectors?


Is the security light staying on ?Usually the engine will not crank and you have no power to the fuel pump if the security system is disabling the car.No injector pulse but spark would point to the computer since both use input from the crank ... Cars & Trucks

I have a 95 suzuki sidekick jx and it wont start. it tries sometimes but wont start. it has good spark, 180psi compression, has fuel, timing is good. if i hold the throttle wide open it will start and run extremely rough. the spark plugs turn black after a little while of trying to start it. i know that means to much fuel. but the fuel pressure is correct and the injectors open and close like they are suppose to. can you think of anything to try to test? thank you for your time


My first guess would be a leaking fuel pressure regulator or a problem with the injector grounds. The injectors may be "on" too much.Is the check engine light on when you can get it running ? ... Cars & Trucks

1984 300zx non turbo......the car was running fine and then it wont start. it has spark. and i disconnected the fuel pressure regulator and turned it over and fuel comes out of the fuel lines going to the injectors. The car turns over just no spark. i noticed a little leak in one of the fuel lines that runs into the fuel regulator and the regulator has a hissing noise but i couldnt find any holes in it. I am guessing that the leak in the fuel line wont let the fuel system pump up to pressure and

3.1 runs fine then wont start if i turn it off at operating temp. Here's the thing though. in the no start situation it has fuel pressure on the fuel rail and fire at the plugs.THe computer has been replaced.ok so lets recap has a new radiator (no sensor) has a new computer (ecm/pcm) has fuel pressure on the fuel rail, and has spark! could it be timing belt? no because it runs fine no backfire through intake or exahaust. is it the ignition module? no theres spark! is it a fuel problem? no theres


HI, ok lets address each issue as your asked 1. Timing belt: since this engine uses a timing chain and it runs fine for the most part its unlikely to be the cause. 2. Ignition module: well the module not only sends the signal for spark timing but it ... 1990 Chevrolet Celebrity

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.
