turns over but won't start. Checked
fuses, relays and pump is coming on.
Why won't it start?

1 Answer


Could be bad throttle position sensor, or bad crankshaft sensor. You may also have a bad ICM (Ignition Control Module) If not giving any error codes, I would guess the crankshaft sensor. You said it was hesitating and running rough. Sounds like a spark issue which would be the crank sensor.
