Hey J==Check the timing. If it is off a lot, or if you have both fire and fuel, the chain could be jumped. Pull a plug wire to see if it has fire and spray some starting fluid in the carb to see if it needs fuel .. GoodluckJoe Hey have you tried the coil? Or the ignition module? Should be in the dist. cap. Try to see if you are getting spark to the coil.

your starter might be going out does it click if so its your starter if not than maybe battery if not battery than its the alternator

If the starter motor is not turning the engine over correctly, this might be because the vehicle battery is flat. If the battery is not charged, this may be because the alternator is not charging correctly. The recommendation here is to pop along to a local garage or autelectrician asking them to check the charge of the battery, the alternator output, and the starter motor operation if necessary.

The alternator generates electricity, so it's not part of the starting system, which uses the stored electricity in the battery. If the lights work, the battery must be pretty well ok. The starter might be stuck, or it might have failed.

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

WELL MY FRIEND YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE BATTERY PROBLEM YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK YOUR ALTERNATOR,BECAUSE AS WE BOTH KNOW YOU KEEP CHANGING THE BATTERY AND IT KEEPS GOING DEAD YOU HAVE A CHARGEING PROBLEM WICH COULD ONLY BE (BATTERY,ALTERNATOR,STARTER).CHECK THESE THREE FIRST I HOPE THIS HELPS

these might be your problems: BATTERY IS DEAD CORROTED BATTERY TERMINALS STARTER IS NO GOOD ALTERNATOR IS NOT CHARGING those are the only things that have to do with the car not starting

The voltage regulator on a 1989 Chevy Camaro is inside of the alternator. If you are having issues, such as flickering lights, you might have to replace the entire alternator.

You might have a bad battery, a poor connection between the battery and alternator, or a bad ground from the battery.

Your battery might be bad, or so might the alternator, or both. A bad alternator will ruin a good battery over time, and vice versa.

Usually insuffucine power to starter caused by bad or undercharged battery. Try jumping it. You might need a battery or alternator. A bad starter can also do this. Many parts store can test for free and all repair shops can test for you but might charge a few dollars.

Since you changed your battery and starter I'm assuming you are getting fuel and spark is your problem. You should check your starter relay, the wires from the relay to your starter, the wires from your battery to the relay, the wires from your locking cylinder to the relay, and your locking cylinder. You might also check your alternator. You can take it to a parts store to have it bench tested for free.

Check the battery, it might be low. A low battery can be caused by either an old, worn out battery or by a faulty alternator. If the alternator isn't putting electrical energy into the battery, the battery won't get charged. After all, a battery is only an electrical STORAGE device. If your battery is fine, you might have a weak starter. You should also check your ignition switch. Try disconnecting it, and then touching the female end to the battery. This grounds out the circuit, should start your car for you, and tells you your battery and starter are perfectly fine.

If the alternator tests good then it might not be a charge problem. Does it do it after you run it awhile? If so you might consider changing the starter. My 92 had a high priced starter on it and anytime you drove more than about 5 miles the battery acted like it was dead. It ended up the starter was getting hot and not turning over right.

Might be something wrong with the alternator. Also you need to double check the wires around the battery and starter. Some of them can be loosen. It can cause a lot of troubles. Just make sure that all wires were tighten properly.

there could be so many things. first you might want to check if the battery is dead then the timing belt and then maybe the starter. also if your battery is goin dead alot check the alternator

alternator needs to be replaced. battery also might be a problem due to the alternator not charging it

Start with the gas tank. No fuel, no start. Then check the battery. If the battery is low or dead, it will not start. If you jump it and it starts, but will not continue running, it is the alternator. If you have gas, a good battery, a working alternator, but it still will not start, and perhaps the tharter makes a weird noise or no noise at all, it's the starter.From there, it depends on the make and model of the vehicle. Could be a number of manufacturer specific problems.Ussually when its the starter a good wack to the starter will make it turn on from pesonal experience of course :)

Your battery is going bad and something may be draining the battery. If you have a weak battery, it will lose charge. The car charges your battery when you run it and if you dont run it, it will go dead. If your car dies while running, in that case you might need a new alternator.

check battery if it has water and check the starter

Souns like you're out of battery. Charge it up and it should turn like normal. If your battery is new, then the alternator might not be working well enough to charge it.
