1994 Geo Metro will not start

all spark plugs dead. and at the main coil?
in this case after fuse (test them , ones that look good can be bad)
these steps work or all EFI cars made.
first is the rotor spinning cranking, if not the cam belt snapped!
a 1 second check, do you try to run 60k mile belts 200k ?

  1. CEL lamp on? key on? no crank? y/n,, if no the ECU is dead. or lamp burned out, we fix this FIRST. for next tests.
  2. I insert the diagnostic jumper clip (paper clip)
  3. the CEL now flashes codes, write them all down.
  4. I then crank for 5 seconds. and release the key.
  5. The ECU then reports live codes. beyond above stored codes.
  6. The ECU is very good at finding bad crank or cam sensors dead or even missing pulses, 1 in 10 lost. trust it, on all cars ......
  7. if no sensor code errors or spark bad errors then do the next things.
  8. The ecu also reads back the Tacho signal and will report dead tacho, sig, the ECU creates this and is the COIL drive signal to the ignition coil via the IGNITOR device.
  9. If the ignitor dies, or the coil primary opens, (dead Ign.coil) then the ECU see this and gives you Spark fail codes, cranking only!
  10. if you get far with a dead ignition coil, the ignitor is bad or the coil assuming coil even has power 12vcd key on.
this is all in the FSM, if you read it.
as is the Ignitior tests, and the coil tests.
The FSM is an amazing thing if your read it.
buy one.

ECU = engine brain, or EFI brain
EFI = eletronic fuel injection
CEL is the check engine light also called SES or MIL.
your ECU is OBD1 and no scan tool works .
only the winky blinky light.

91 toyota v6 is not firing

ok , (killed?)
there are 6 spark plugs, it will take all 6 firing to run
are all 6 sparking, called a spark test.
BTW1, the ECU will not inject fuel if it even suspects spark is bad.
it has 3 monitors for spark, if one dies, fuel is cut and in many case
the fuel pump too, all cars. (fire safety)
so SPARK is first.
  1. check spark? if spark is dead.
  2. then Insert the diagnostic jumper clip (paper clip )
  3. in to the check terminal.
  4. and then crank for 5 seconds.
  5. Got DTC errors (flash codes) for CMP, or CKP dead? or spark dread codes. ? BINGO?
  6. The ECU will tell you most times if spark is bad. and why.
ever do a 60,000 mile tune up in the last decade?
if not , maybe now is that magic moment?
fuel can burn weak or no spark.
the 60k also nets you a new fuel filter .
check spark directly at the the coil too....not just the 6 spark wires.
if the coil sparks and not the 6 that means the cam belt slipped.
(hard to believe a chain can but see 2 like that, owner was deaf)

if you have spark, then test fuel works
spary it in now.
verrrommmmmmmm stall.
that means the fuel pressure is low.
if you get this far,the rest is easy, ask.

No power on spark plugs

all cars must crank first, if no crank it can never start
unless its a M/T car (stick) and you push start it.
it cranks robustly, i will ASSUME.
since you said spark is dead, on all 4 spark plugs??? or just one.
no power?, spark has 2 powers.
the primary side, and the high voltage (danger) side.
i guess you meant no HV spark but on how many?

with all electrical failures, the first step is, check all fuses.
open the glove box ,extract the oper guide and read the page called fuses. shows them all, in cab and engine bay.
are they good.? Use and ohmmeter, to test fuses.
fuse that look bad are, fuse that look good, can be bad,

if all spark is dead on all 4 spark plugs, the CKP sensor my be dead,
2.0L engine? I4, has 4 spark plugs. (with COPS)
Check list:
1: all fuses good.
2: dash lamps work and head lights, engine cranks FAST. (normal)
3: key on, (noat cranked) CEL lamp comes on, does it? if not, the ECU is dead. (or fuse blown to PCM )

4: all spark dead? yes? then, attach any $9 scan tool, is RPM showing while cranking, for 5 seconds,
yes, CKP is ok (CKP is the CRANK sensor.
no, its dead. and see P0340 and 355s DTC codes, BINGO!that!
see scootty?

dumb questions, using a strobe light does not prove out spark !
can i assume the spark test is with real test spark plug ?
not other ways? (say so) use a real spark plug to test spark.
with proper gap set and shell of spark plug grounded.
in the USA, (not stated ) the 2L has 4 COP coils
we must check spark at each end of each COP tip (boot end).
if JUST (say)#1 is bad, that is TYPE A failure (a bad cop?)
if all 4 are dead? that is TYPE B failure.
bad CKP, or bad CMP
in english , bad cranks sensor or bad cam (I) sensor.

the FSM is online, and the tests are there, a real FSM is the best
doing DIY work with out the book is near impossible,
and 10x that , after 2004 or so (insane complexity began)
some cars have immobilizers. or alarms that cut spark.
i cant see your car or its options....
i can only presume you read the operators guide, and watched the dash lamps as it instructs you.
keep in mind all web help is blind. and in this complex world , makes for bad advice (even mine)

2004 Grand Vitara won't start

the trans only blocks cranking so we can ignore the overdrive lamp.
when car will not start, (state , what engine you have first)? 2.0L I4 or V6?
the first thing to check is .
is the gas tank above 1/4?
is there spark. on all 4 to 6 spark plugs.
are all fuses good.
does the CEL lamp glow key on, if not the ECU/PCM is dead and there will be no spark or fueling ever. but fuses can blow and disable ECU.

1987 BMW K75 motorcycle, - engine suddenly died while doing 70 Km/h. When trying restart startengin don't work. Everyting else seems normal.

Check that the plug didn't fall out of the ECU its located under the seat.
The plug clips on. This same thing happened to me. On the side of the road I figured it out. I just got the bike & the previous owner just replaced the battery. You have to remove the computer aka ECU to change it, The computer controls the spark & fuel injection. There's also a part called the Hall sensor for the ignition, that could have one bad.

2003 galant does not to start

If the starter does not turn over the engine, the battery is probably flat.

If it does, and the engine does not fire, its either
  • a spark problem. Most common fault is the spark coil system (distributor or coil pack) has failed.
  • a fuel problem. Check that fuel is reaching the engine.
  • a fuel pump relay problem. This is behind the dash, and fail occasionally.
  • an ECU problem. If the ECU is running there may be a Check Engine light on the dashboard. Read the ECU code for a diagnostic start suggestion.
  • the ECU is dead (which happens) it has to be replaced with one from a wrecker.
