View Full Version : SR wont start

07-22-2008, 01:47 PM
I have a s13 Sr20det blacktop. the other day I was taking it for a spin, topping out third gear when it cut out, sputtered, and then died. Now it just cranks, but wont turn over. It makes no clunking noises like its blown, just cranks and wont start. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry to hear man,

First stop might be to see if you can pull any codes.

Might give you a starting point.

Good luck

check compression

checked for spark and was good, compression check brought back 120psi across the board. This is very low no? I think we have a winnar.

well abovious engine needs 4 things to start air, compression, spark,and fuel. we can rule out spark cause you checked, air well air is every where so we can rule that out, and compression not sure where it should range on sr you should find out, and fuel well you can check that by disconnecting the vacuum line from the brake booster and spray some b 12 carb and choke cleaner in the line and have someone crank it while doing that. and if it starts then there it is a fuel problem. it will stay on till the carb and choke cleaner finishes. which means its not getting fuel. hope this helps if it does let me know
