Check your distributor cap. Mine was cracked and every time it rained the car wouldn't start. We replaced it and the car started every time. I don't think it's a good idea to wet down your engine, though.

Starter won't crank over engine? Battery or battery connection issues. Starter cranks over engine but engine won't start? Being a GM product I would suspect fuel delivery problems (bad fuel pump).

1996 Sunfire just died won't start what to look for?

Well it could be many problems.Does the engine crank, but not turn over?If the engine does not crank at all, or cranks slowly, it could be a problem with your battery. Check the battery terminals and wires.If it does not crank, and you believe your battery is ok, check your fuses.If the engine cranks, but won't turn over, it could possibly be your spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor or fuel pump. The best thing to do is to get someone with moderate vehicle knowledge to do some basic diagnostics.

An engine which cranks but will not start is not receiving enough fuel or has no spark. A clogged fuel filter or bad spark plugs often cause this problem.

Why Engine cranks slowly?

If an engine is cranking slowly the first thing I would suspect is a weak battery. Remove both battery cables and clean both the cable connectors and the battery posts. Put a battery charger on the battery and charge it until if is fully charged. If the problem still persists, then suspect a starter going bad or the engine is slow in time. Remove the starter and have it tested at an auto parts store. If the starter checks OK, then you need to have the engine timing checked. If your Check Engine light is on, have the ECU scanned for a trouble code and go from there.

Can a battery that fails the storage capacity test keep an engine from starting - even when the engine still cranks?

No. If you have enough power for the engine to crank then it has enough power to run the other systems. ALSO..i've started a car with a good battery and replaced it with "unknown battery" and it has stalled the motor. Starter and everything was good. Technically, even if the battery is dead and all other systems are normal this shouldn't happen. Go figure.
