Car seemed to be running fineI go to start it only clicks and engine doesn't turn overi get a jump drive it back home Then try to start it again and it just clicks and does the same thing?
Disregard all the following comments about the alternator being at fault. They are all wrong. The primary reason your starter clicks but won't crank is that not enough current (amps) are going from the battery (a storage device) to the starter (merely an electric motor with a special gear on the end).
So . . . how do you get more amps from the battery to the starter motor?
1. Remove battery cables and wirebrush the connections. Then reattach the cables, making sure that the connections are clean and tight. This will solve most (not all) "clicking" problems.
2. If course of action #1 doesn't solve your problem, disconnect the cables again and this time clean the connection at the starter motor solenoid. Note: do not work on the solenoid connection while the main battery cables are still attached.
3. If clean connections are not enough to solve your problem, remove the battery and take it to Advance Auto or some other auto store that tests batteries. They will put the battery on a charger for 6 hours and then test it with a load meter. The meter will identify a bad battery instantly.
4. If courses of action 1, 2, and 3 have not solved your problem, the culprit may be the alternator. The only way to test it is to get the engine running and then connect a voltmeter to the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals on the battery. The reading should be about 13+ volts. Twelve volts is insufficient, and 15 volts is too high. If the alternator is not putting out 13+ volts, the battery will slowly lose its charge, and you will be back to the "clicking" problem.
84 Chevy caprice when engine is off something is still running not the wiper motor or the windshield fluid motor what is it you have to disconnect the battery to make it stop?
Temp gauge on 1994 g20 stopped working it seemed to always be on the low side van runs fine bought last year wire is secure to the sensor haven't pulled dash panel to check gauge yet ideas?
You can check the temp. gauge operation by removing the temp. gauge sending unit plug and touching it to any engine ground with ignition on but the Van not running. The gauge will go to hot right away, if it is working. The temp. gauge sending unit is located on the drivers side of the engine at midpoint just below the exhaust manifold. It will have a single wire running to it and be plugged…
Why does your 96 Acura Integra make a short groaning noise from the engine bay randomly when running?
Been wondering that myself for years. I was just looking under my hood for an unrelated issue and it made the noise. I can't be sure the exact source of the sound, but I believe it came from something associated with the ABS system (according to the markings on the component the sound seemed to have come from). The mystery continues...
Actually, they don't. Nobody really does that. Some talk shows, back in 2008, when then-Senator Obama was running for president, noted how charismatic he was and how audiences seemed to love him; so they jokingly referred to him as "the messiah"-- because it seemed some of his fans believed he would be able to magically transform Washington.
Not sure the age of this post, but I had mine done for £550. That included the new uprated gasket, engine skim, engine flush, new themostat (with small pass hole) new metal timing belt pulley's (to replace plastic ones). Seemed like a very good price, as I had been quoted £1000+. Still running round in it to day 12months after HGF !! Now have problem with a suspect camshaft sensor, I think !! :-(
You broke up with this guy but you still love him he seemed to move on really quiclky and not really care that you broke up with him?
On the 406 HDi a likely cause is the o-ring on the water drain plug on the front bottom the filter. Mine failed at 10years old - replacement just over £2 (2010 prices). Interestingly it seemed to leak only when the engine was running (not with the ignition on and low-pressure fuel pump pumping), even though low pressure feed to the filter should not change significantly.

My ex broke up with me but he seemed sad. lately I see him stare at me and apparently he was sad when my name was brought up.. but he won't talk to me. I miss him so much. What does this mean?
When my 1995 Ford Aerostar 3.0L distributor equipped was running suddenly quit cranks but no start even after replacing cap rotor ignition module spraying starting fluid straight into throttle body?
I had the same problem. A guy from Ford's told me to replace my MAF sensor whcih is attached to your air intake. Right where the air comes in there is a metal piece which is your MAF sensor. I got one out of a junk yard for about$8.00 and it works fine. How I know it was the MAF sensor was the fact that when the Van ran it seemed to have the engine…
He seemed an unlikely candidate for nomination to become President. Van Buren seemed to have the Democratic nomination locked up tight and would surely choose Polk as his running mate. The Whig candidate was bound to be the powerful Henry Clay. Polk had served as the Governor of Tennessee but had failed twoce to obtain re-election to that office. He was considered to be far too weak to win.
What could it mean when the engine light comes on my 98 Jeep Lardeo Lost a bit of take off power at first then i turned of engine and it seemed fine. Thanks?
You were friends with this guy and you started liking him and then you found out that he doesnt even like you even though it seemed so obvious and he knows that you like him how are you supposed to ac?
aww. believe me, friendship can be just as good as a relationship :) at first your friendship may be a little awkward, but if he doesnt return your feelings- then there isn't much you can do :( just try being friends, it may not be what you really want- but it's better than losing him completely. just act normal, friendly :) be yourself.
