Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers:
Another ting to try is removing the spark plugs (make sure you re- cord which wires go where) and pro vidind that the engine isn't flooded
spray some starting fluid(avalible at auto parts stores) in the hol where the spark plug was and put the spark plugs back in and try to start it if it begins to start but then shuts off
your problem is proboly fuel delivery, but if the engine is flooded take out the plugs and let it sitt for a while to dry out.
There is a little sprocket in your strarter looks like a cog with teeth on in, but the teeth can chip or break if the metal is cheap which in most cars now days it is. So the starter is turning but the missing teeth are not connecting to make a spark keep turning it samething happened to my Buick but i didnt gte is fixed rite away because if you keep cranking evetually the teeth will catch and ignite
a motor needs fuel/ spark / air / compression all at the correct time check sources of all from major parts to minor (id start with anything electrical) you should find the problem
- One other thing that could possibly have gone bad is the main relay, its a $50 part that gives the fuel pump power when the key is on, so bad relay, no power to pump, no gas, no start.
-you need, spark, compression and a proper fuel mixture for your car to start. Generally, the compression gives way over time, so it is the last thing you should suspect if this problem appeared overnight. First thing you should try is to turn the key to the "on" position (not the crank start position). You should hear an electronic hum coming from the fuel tank. If you don't hear the hum, check the fuel pump relay or fuse. If those are fine, the fuel pump is suspect. If you do hear the hum, your fuel pump is working fine. Check for fuel pressure in the fuel line. It should look like a valve like the one you might find on a bicycle tire. If fuel sprays out, your fuel pressure is fine, which means you can suspect the spark. The battery is not the culprit (it turned the starter remember). Check for spark as noted above. If you don't get spark, check spark from the coil. Depending on the model and technology of your car, you can then suspect the ignition control module (esp. if it was a hot day) , as well as the distributor and all its components like the rotor and distributor cap.
By the way, most, if not all new cars have an inertia trip switch. Mine is under the dash. .
Does it turn over? Does it turn over?
why after replaced the head gasket car wont turn over??jetta 2000 2.2l
Nahh, you've got wrong info dude, my car starts on just well! :P
Well actually if it is started then it has turned over.
There are a couple of reasons why a car will turn over but only start sometimes. There could be a starter issue or a spark plug issue.
If it doesnt turn over it can be
Won't start and won't turn over are 2 different things. If it will not turn over then look at the starter or ignition switch.
The more you turn your car over, the dead-er you battery gets. If your car doesn't start you should try to figure out why, fix it, then attempt to start it again. Continuing to attempt to start it will only kill the battery, thus making it pointless and giving you two problems.
if it doesent turn over its a dead battery or a loose battery terminal try jump starting it and see if it turns over
The most common reasons for a car not to turn over or start are a bad starter, a bad starter solenoid, or a wiring problem. If the car is turning over. check the engine for fire to the spark plugs.
car won't turn over
if it does not turn over and no clicking noise but headlights on, check start fuse and relay if it doesnt turn over and clicks probable starter solenoid
It is to give the starter enough power to turn your car over to start it..
Car won't start... engine can turn over, no power.
If your car doesn't start, or when you turn the key it makes a weird noise. Lights dim, slow to turn over,
fuel system... likely injector
If it will not turn over you have an electrical problem. Start by removing the battery cables and cleaning the cables and battery posts. If that does not solve the problem, then put a charger on the battery and let it fully charge. Turn on your headlights and try to start the car. If it still will not turn over and the lights do not dim you probably have a bad starter or starter solenoid. But make sure your battery is good. If you can jump start it with another vehicle the battery is bad. It can also be a defective ignition switch.
Check the battery and connections
Either your battery is dead or starter is shot.
Weak battery or starter.
for safety measures after any accident the innertia swish kick on
it depends does the car turn over if not most likely it the starter
replaced battery in 1991 cad deville and reprogramed computer as car manual said. now car will turn over but not start
That is too vague of a question. when you turn the key do the dash lights come on (two red lights on speedo). If so, when you turn the key to start the car, does the engine try to turn over? Is it turning over and not starting, or not turning over? or is nothing happening?
