Default Could a messed up spark plug wire keep the car from starting

Like an idiot I haven't even checked the wires. I was reading a post from willren and he said it might be a spark plug wire problem. I haven't checked yet, but could a messed up spark plug wire keep the car from starting?

how you mean? not starting as in "it won't even crank" or not starting as in "it turns over but won't fire?"

If it'* just one cracked wire then it should still start. It can limp by on only 5 cylinders.

You should really keep all your posts regarding this issue in the same thread.

Str8, please keep all your topics running together. These multiple posts make it impossible for us to see the progression of troubleshooting. ONE topic until your car is fixed, please.

It'* probably best at this point that you start over from the beginning.
