Agreed with GTSDriver2003. Try to be more clear with your posts.

That said, one of your cars may have a bad starter or starter solenoid. Grab a multimeter and see if your starter solenoid is getting a signal from the ignition. If it is and the car still won't crank, replace the starter.

For the one not getting enough gas, check your MAF sensor and fuel pressure. Also check for fuel injector function.

If the ignition switch is bad even though I ran a wire straight to the starter from the hot post on the battery would the car still start up or will the ignition being bad still stop it from starting up

You need to check the things I listed. You're shooting in the dark and throwing parts at it. You need to diagnose the problem first, then try to fix things. A new starter failing to crank doesn't mean the ignition is toast. Might just mean a broken signal wire or bad connection. A new fuel pump doesn't mean your fuel pressure is correct. Might mean you have a bad regulator or a clogged line.

Buy the adapter online and borrow a fuel pressure gauge from the local auto parts store. Harbor freight should at least have a cheap fuel pressure gauge set to get you through. There is another thread on here where we talk about measuring fuel pressure and the part numbers needed for the adapter. A quick search should bring it up.

I understand it can be frustrating not having nice tools to do this stuff with, but this is basic equipment that is needed for a fuel system diagnosis and can be found inexpensively if you look around.You'll spend more money replacing random parts on your car than you will if you just get the right tools and pin point what your problem is.

Dude. Sentences. If you're going to continue to ask for help, you need to type your problems out in sentences. Otherwise you're not going to get any responses. Most users just ignore posts like this because it's too much of a pain to decipher.

I got my one car fixed it was number 6 injector.I took the power tester on my other car.ever thing getting power except for the wire run to the starter.but I checked the fire and it's good.its getting gas.with the wire I ran to the starter from the battery I try to start it and it just keeps turning over. I sprayed starting fuel in it and still no Start.it is making a clicking noise in abs box to I just heard it today.it like the ecu not telling it to start.i have done ran out of ideas.the only thing I haven't done is checked the compression.but when I plugged the scan tool up to it.it want read like its no juice to the switch could my ecu be bad. Could someone please help me. Thanks
