ecu problem ?

take a plug out and pour a bit of fuel in a cylinder put the plug in and turn over if it fires its fuel rail

so most likely be ecu as not all the injectors go at once

Your car's brain crapped out.
Find someone with a portable anylizer and try to reset it. The anylizer will tell you in code what is wrong if it's not the brain.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1084427


The key operates both the ignition and the door lock. Are you inside or outside the car?

Is it in park or neutral (if it doesn't say PRND)?

If all is good so far, honk the horn to make sure a solar flare hasn't knocked out your car.

Get some neighbors and try to bump start it. Push it real fast in Neutral and then slam into D.

Ride a bike.

Re: Any shade tree mechanics out there? My engine will turn over but will not start. What could be the problem?
Op I hate to hi-jack a little bit but I never thought of posting here about a car issue.

Can anyone tell me why my 2000 sunfire (100k) idles so wierd.

I will be sitting in a drive through and the idle goes from 800 rpm - 1200 rpm and flucuates like it never has before.. Plus there is a slight bearing type low squel coming from the pulley/belt area.. I know its not the altenator I just had it replaced.. Any idea?

OP sorry to hi-jack again.. I hate to clutter the forum with non conspiracy threads though :)

The year and make of the vehicle would help,it could be the fuel pump. WHen you turn the key on, not fully turned enough to start it, can you hear a humming? That would be the fuel pump. Go pound the hell out of the gas tank, this may get the fuel pump going again, but you need to replace it asap.

Model/year ?

Unplug an ignition wire and stick a screwdriver in the boot.

Put it close to the engine block or any metal and have a helper turn the key/starter and see if there's spark.

If you got spark...a nice blue spark...it's a gas problem.

Undo a plug and smell for gas.....no gas...have your helper crank again and bang on the bottom of the gas tank with a rubber mallet.

Check fuses.
Check for Spark.
Check for gas.

If it spins unusually fast during the starter phase...you might have a busted timing belt.

Fuel...check

Spark Plugs, OK, brand new.

Distributor OK.

Plug Wires OK.

Fuel Pump OK.

Battery OK...the engine turns over.



Engine will turn over OK, normal, but the darn thing will not start. I think it might have jumped time.
