do you have any codes?
thats odd with a no spark condition that wil make it ruff on us
Tell me about it. It has been a nightmare so far
usually its fuel related when no codes. will it stay running
It will not start
but its firing at the beginning but not catching to run?
If it sparks one time when you first try to start it and then stops sparking, could the computer try to strat it the first crank and then stop the spark plugs if it detects the sensor is out?
Yes, just one spark one the first crank and it stops. The only reason I know this is because i have the plugs out and I can see the first spark
It does not spark more than one first time cranking, so it does not start for me
will when a sensor misses it gets everything out of sink. timing and other things.the pcm will not be able to communicate right with fuel and air delivery. and the rest of the electrical componants
can you try some starting fluid in there and see what it does?
Yes I can, but if it only sparks 1 time, do you think it will be enough to fire it up?
it may be sparking one time each cylinder til it gets back to that spartk plug
listen to fuel pu
I also ran a wire to the fuel pump and make it start running as soon as I try to start it. Is that a bad Idea? or is it ok? and does it answer your question on if starting fluid will work?
It does spark 1 time per cylender, cause I pulled everyone and lokked at them
leave off the wire. if pump isnt working then the fuel pump is bad or a bad fuel pump relay.
And after each 1 fires, it stops the firing order.
I replaced the relay, but if the pump is bad, then would it not work at all, even if I give it power?
if your fuel pump don
run it c
n effect your spark
you dont have to turn rodeo on before you here the fuel pump just turn the key to on and listen.
I know that everytime you turn the key on, that your fuel pump comes on for just a few seconds then shuts off. I know this one does not do that unless I put power to it.
then thats bad shoot some staring fluid in there up the breather
Does this model have a fuel pressure sensor? and could it be bad?
OK, I can go do it now. It will only take me a minute or 2. Do you wait for me to try, or do I just log back on after I am done?
click here for a no start trouble shooting by the books. No fuel pressure sensor only a regulator.
no problem i am here
It did not start.
Sorry it took so long, but I had to disconnect the battery long enough to reset the computer and let it spark again. After it sparks once, it will not spark again until it has been reset. And I did it 3 diferent times to make sure it had starting fluid in the cylinders for sure. So I had to reset the computer 3 times
I got this for a auction, and I noticed that the security light was flashing while I was cranking it over.
It stops flashing as soon as I put the key in and turn it on, but start flashing while cranking it over.
the testing above will help i would test maf sensor also and crank sensor. this is assuming you have checked the ignition coil and componants.
I cant type, so I have to look down at the keyboard as I type, so most of the time I dont see what you typed until I am done, so my answers are slow to reply because of this. Sorry for the inconvienience.
I put in a new crank sensor already
The parts store said to replace the cam sensor next. Does that sound right?
I thought you said cam sensor
Sorry if I did, I get them mixed up when I ask for them or type them in a search engine
oh i see then check the cam sensor then. let me check on a security reset for you
Can you replace the cam sensor without removing the intake manifold?
no i misread you are right but yes its next but let me see if I can find the security reset
How do I check the cam sensor? or did you mean replace the cam sensor?
ok having trouble finding it. i will get it for you in the mroning ok. it will be around 930
I will request info from my site.
Finding what? The cam sensor?
then we can try cam sensor and other and start with testing i gave you.
the security reset
Can the cam sensor be removed without taking off the intake manifold?
How can you get ahold of me in the morning? You dont have my email or anything? Do I give it to you

Ok the the tail gate. security is reset when you use the key in the ignition also when you use the the key to lock and unlock the tailgate. click here for more info. it has a starter switch that may show fualty but. if you do the tail gate and it doesnt work lets try the cam sensor and I will get r and r for that . but since thats a bear to get to lets try and ignition coil first. thats where we should start anyway.
