STARTING PROBLEMS

1992 Toyota Celica • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 172,000 miles

MY CAR WONT START AT NIGHT IM GUESSING ITS THE COLD WEATHER BUT WHY? It turns over strongly but wont start. I just had to put a accessory relay from under my dash and put into the fuel pump relay spot until I can buy a new pump relay could that have something to do with it? And the cold?

**Cranks but no start condition: Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
