When there is no spark there will not be fuel most the time
THE ECU cut fuel when it see 3 forms of lost spark.
find no spark reason. at all spark plugs and coil,
did you do the check light test,? CEL flash tests.
insert jumper wire.
crank for 5 seconds
the flash codes (3 above) flash out telling you why spark is bad.
all cars 1988 to now USA.

for get fuel
fix spark and bingo fuel happens.
if fuel dont happen, with spark the try test fuel.
if test fuel fails with spark the cam belt threw or slipped and
the compression is now way below 150PSI ,wot.

SOURCE: my 92 accord turns but have no spark

You need a new distributor, these are a common problem and available new at just about any auto parts store. There are three inductive pick-up coils, a module and coil inside this thing and they go bad. You could try changing the module first, but they are non returnable, if it doesn't fix it, you're stuck. If it does fix it, chances are, the pickup coils are on their way out soon.
I would just get the whole new unit, about a 100 bucks on Ebay, $185 at the store.

SOURCE: my honda will not start it sounds like it will

First, remember you need spark and gas. Do you have both? Run a fuel pressure test. Then run a spark test. If you have both. next do a compression test for each cylinder. Too low? You need a new engine. Just right? Go to next step...


Check underneath the distributer AND inside the cap. Is there any oil under the distrib. or inside the cap? If so, you may need a new distributer, especially if oil is found inside the cap and rotor.

If this checks out OK. Next, open the oil fill cap on top of your engine block. Look inside while someone else tries to make it start. Is the shaft inside the hole moving/rotating while the car is trying to be started? If not, you needle to replace the timing belt.

The last test is a starter test. Locate the starter and get a long pry bar. While your assistant tries to start, you start to strike the started with the pry bar, if the car suddenly starts ; you need to replace the starter.

SOURCE: car will turn over but has no spark to coil cap

If there is no power to the coil, then the crankshaft position sensor is most likely faulty. You can test it with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting and see if you get a good strong reading. If you get a good reading, then check power from ignition switch

It like you have short circuit the system,it need to be check by a professional car electrician.

I have a 1990 mitsubishi might max it wont run smooth unless you keep your foot on the gas and keep the rpms up a little bit and it wont drive cause it stalls everytime you try to move it. ive replaced the...


You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.
3 Inspect Distributor Cap -- Distributor Cap Cracked or Burned.

5 Inspect Ignition Coil -- Faulty Ignition Coil.
6 Inspect Wireset -- Worn, Damaged or Faulty Spark Plug Wire(s).
7 Inspect Spark Plug -- Incorrectly Gapped or Fouled Spark Plug(s).
8 Inspect Starter -- Starter Motor Faulty.
9 Inspect Fuel Pump -- Low Fuel Pressure.
10 Inspect Solenoid Switch -- Faulty Starter Solenoid Switch.
11 Inspect Fuel Pump Relay -- Faulty Fuel Pump Relay.
12 Inspect Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator -- Faulty Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator.
13 Inspect Ignition Switch -- Improperly Connected or Faulty Ignition Switch.
14 Inspect Starter Drive -- Faulty Starter Drive.
15 Inspect Fuel Injector -- Dirty or Worn Fuel Injectors.
16 Inspect Fuel Pump Strainer -- Clogged or Dirty Fuel Pump Strainerat.
17 Inspect Engine Control Computer -- Incorrect Operating Information Being Delivered and Sent From The EEC.
18 Inspect Fuel Tank -- Fuel Tank Empty.
19 Inspect Carburetor -- Carburetor Flooded or Faulty Choke.

Gets gas gets spark but don't start. new fuel


1. does it turn over? if so, strong, or weak? 2. did you replace the fuel filter? 3. coil packs, or distributor (pack(s) can be tested) if distributed check cap and rotor, replace coil, but first check starter relay - 4. Check all ignition fuses, starter fuse - (along with relay{above}) 5. Check all connections from battery - positive, negative etc.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
