Car Starting Problems
Eagle Talon
Grand Am GT

Why might a 1991 Eagle Talon turbo automatic 4 cylinder turn over but not start the day after you took a drive and filled up the gas tank?

If it's turning but not starting, I would check the starter. You

can easily take it out and go to a local AutoZone and have them

test it. If the starter is still good, there's a chance it could be

your fuel pump. I had the same problem with my car but I think you

would notice if your pump was going out.

If it's turning (cranking) it is definitely NOT the starter.

see if your getting spark..take a spark plug out and ground it with

a jumper wire (a wire with 2 gator clips on each end) and see if it

pops a spark out of the spark plug. if not your not getting spark

or fuel, and we have the same problem.
