Not likely. Make sure the fuel filter isn't clogged, check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail, make sure you have spark. If everything looks ok but it turns over slow and runs rough (when it does run), I'd look at the timing chain having jumped a notch.
I had this same problem. I turned out to be the fuel pump. Take a common hose and put it down into the gas tank. Put your ear to the other end and have someone turn on the key. if you hear a sound, the pump is working. if not, check the fuel pump relay, found just above the battery. if that is ok, you need to change the fuel pump.
could be the alternator. could be the battery, the alternator charges the battery but does not stop the battery holding a charge.could also be a bad starter motor. take alternator off and have it tested. most places will test for free
This could be the voltage regulator. Both the positive from the battery and the starter would be connected to it.
If the starter is "clicking" then check the battery to make sure that is has enough juice to turn the starter. If the battery is good. It could be your starter solenoid is bad. Most of these are built into the starter nowadays. You will have to have the starter changed. I am betting on the battery especially if it is older. Another culprit could be your alternator failing to charge your battery.
Check a for a blown/burned out fuseable link between starter and alternator
AnswerIf the battery's dead it could be the alternator or a bad battery. If not, the starter. Try jumping it. If it starts the starter's OK. Then investigate the alternator and battery.Does it turn over but not start..?? There is a difference. Doesn't turn over would most likely be the battery, which is typically followed by a clicking noise. That would be the starter solenoid trying to engage but the battery doesn't have enough power to do so.If jumping it starts it right up, let it run for 10 or 15 minutes then (while running) check the voltage at the battery terminals. If it's above 14 volts, the alternator is doing it's job and the battery is dead. If the voltage is less than 14, then the alternator needs to be replaced.
could be the alternator or starter sounds like the alternator if the battery is gone flat get the alternator tested at auto parts or garage jump charging the battery might get you out of trouble for a bit
a timing chain has broken
It could be battery connection, discharged or faulty battery, faulty alternator or regulator, faulty starter or a loose and corroded connection on the starter.
Had the same problem. Bought a re-conditioned alternator, turned out it was bad. Usually if battery draining, it's alternator or battery or both.
Your timing could be off, Your starter could be going bad, or you could have a low battery.The battery is the simplest to start with. You could go to Auto Zone and they will check your battery for you. Also talk to them about your starter and your timing. Low battery, faulty alternator, worn stater, corroded connection
Loose cables, bad battery, alternator or starter.
Could be the battery is drained or bad. Could be battery connections at battery and or starter are dirty and or loose. Could be starter solenoid is bad. Could be starter is bad.
1. The battery could be dead. 2. The starter could be stuffed. 3. The alternator Could be stuffed. Put another battery in see what happens.
Could be starter drive or weak battery you should check out the battery first
It could be solenoid, starter, battery, alternator not CHARGING the battery or corroded battery terminals.
It could be the starter in it. It may be weak or need replaced.
Then it is a defective ignition switch.
There could be many reasons as to why this car will not start up. The battery could be drained, the starter, starter solenoid or alternator could be going bad, or there could be an issue within the fuel system.
you may either have a weak battery or your alternator could not be producing enough volts. Could also be a combination of the two.
If the engine is cranking over fast(starter and battery ok) and it just won't start, it could be alot of things If the engine is cranking slowly, it could be the starter, the battery, or the alternator(not charging the battery) check your cables from the battery to the engine and the body... good luck d
The problem is not the starter. The battery is either not holding or not receiving enough charge. Problem could be (1) loose alternator beltl (2) loose/corroded battery cable(s); (3) dead cell(s) in the battery; (4) bad alternator.
It sounds like the starter is bad. The clicking you hear is the solenoid trying to kick-over the starter. If the vehicle starts but, won't stay running, it could be the alternator, or the wireing to (from) the battery or alternator (most likely the ground wire). Or it could be the dreaded MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR!!!!
If car cranks over and won't start it is not the starter, alternator or battery. Most likely the ignition wires or module, fuel delivery system or air intake meter.
Could be the starter.
