need some major HELP quick for my dd

Ok my car has been acting weird lately. When I got to start her she's cranks but won't start. Usually after A few tries she'll start up And sometimes I have to give it gas to get it started. Now on sunday I was leavin my soccer game And it started up fine went a bout a block and it's completely died. Doing the same as before it still cranks but won't start. I have now replaced the alternator the fuel pump fuel filter and spark plugs and I can't seem to get it to work. She is my daily driver I really need to get her back up and running. Any suggestions would be amazing. Its an jdm h22 ina 92 body. Please help.

Re: need some major HELP quick for my dd

Is there the possibility the the timing belt snapped, or the tensioner failed? You can check that by taking the cap off your distributor and see if the rotor turns while you crank it. If it doesn't turn, your timing belt is shot.

Also, are you getting spark? Hold a spark plug wire near a ground spot while cranking the engine and look for spark. If you can't see spark, hold it to your tongue to make sure. Just kidding. But seriously, check for spark.

Oh, that's not good. If you are unsure to do this work, I would suggest a reputable shop, maybe where your dad or uncle go? While we condone fixing your car yourself, we don't want you hurting yourself either.

If you have AAA, they have shops that will fix the car without robbing you blind. Before all the flaming begins, I had great experiences with my tows, and the repair costs were reasonable. If its the main relay, it's not such a bad repair.

Re: need some major HELP quick for my dd

Thanks guys, im positive I can do the work, my problem is I don't know what the work is. Its been sitting in a parking lot for two days now. I go there during my lunch break and work on it. Which has included fuel pump today, plugs alternator and filter yesterday. Im about to give up on fixing it myself. My aunt and my gf. Both have AAA. So ima call em and get it towed tomorrow to a shop to get it at least diagnosed. . I hope to God it's just the relay, if the belt snapped, valves will probably be bent, which means head work and more money.

Re: need some major HELP quick for my dd

My belt snapped and two auto tensioners after that, and everything was still fine. I got lucky to say the least, but that means you could get lucky too.

P.S. Don't lick the spark plug wire while cranking the engine. Just wanna make that clear to any 9V battery fans out there. It was a joke.
