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.

What are the symptoms of the starter or alternator going bad in you car?

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.

What can it be if car want start but all the lights come on alternator or starter.?

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.

What is wrong with 1994 VW Golf when you turn on the ignition key and you just hear a ticking sound and sometimes if you try it again it will start to turn engine?

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.

What should you check next if you already replaced the battery and the starter and your vehicle still will not start?

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.

What could cause a 1990 Firebird to not charge when the NEW alternator checks out to be working just 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.

I replaced the battery and a starter on a 91 Camry but sometimes it still won't start why?
