Q: Q: Will crank but won't start

asked by on

Just put new fuel pump in and spark plugs.

My car has 207000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You need to check to see if you have spark to the plugs. Scan the computer to see if crankshaft and camshaft sensors are signaling the computer to spark. If not then replace the defective spark plug. If it’s proven to be okay then may need to replace coil and ignition module. If you need assistance with this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can diagnose your starting issue firsthand and make the necessary repairs to your car.
