G'day guys.

Had a problem with my car not starting the other day. Changed the TFI module, ignition coil. Now it sparks, however it won't turn over. Not sure if this is a fuel problem or not.

Does anyone have any ideas? Kinda need it on the road urgently!

Wouldn't that mean that it wouldn't crank or spark though?

are you saying te car wont turn over as in crank over??? if so 1st place I would check is on the starter itself. check the wires are all connected ok, there is one that is a push on spade terminal which is the one from the ignition and are prone to becoming loose. I think also they ave a relay for the starter as well (not 100% sure)

smartlock wont stop it cranking just stops it sparking and cuts fuel I believe

The car sparks, and cranks, but won't turn over, which is why I am guessing a fuel problem. Any thoughts?

you should be able to hear the petrol pump running for about 2 secs when you turn the key on then it will stop. Could be a stuffed fuel pump or a faulty relay (green one). The green relay can only be replace with the same one as its a special relay. if you have a mate with a EA - EL pinch theirs for a try and see if its that.

or you could swap them over with your mates car if possible, if his still starts ok, then its most likely the fuel pump
