If it cranks but doesn't catch it's probably not the starter. You can pull the coil and the igniter and have them tested at most auto parts retailers, but in general, it's a process of elimination. When you find a part that works, you go on to the next possibility. If it is cranking and not starting, pull 1 spark plug wire and connect it to a spare sparkplug. Lay the sparkplug on a metal part of the engine and crank the engine to see if you are getting a good, strong spark. If you're getting a spark, check the fuel pressure. Don't just assume that if it's not starting that there's something wrong with the ignition.
It will not start with a broken timing belt
No, it will not.
If the timing belt is broken the vehicle will not start.
If you can drive the car, the timing belt isn't broken. An engine will not start or run with a broken cam belt.
I think,You can'nt start engine if this happened.
One of the symptoms of a broken timing belt is the very loud sound that comes from the vehicle when you try to turn it on. Even though it is loud, the car will not start.
Your timing belt has probably worn out, or broken, and has jumped timing.
if the timing belt is broke, then the car wont start. and u probably bent a bunch of valves.
One way to tell if the timing chain is broken on your Nissan Altima is to see if it will start. If it starts, it is not the timing chain. You can also remove the distributor cap, have someone step on the gas while you watch the engine. If the rotor moves, it is not the timing chain.
compression? bad/worn/broken timing chain..
Sounds like a bad coil or a broken timing belt.
Engine will not start and run if the belt has broken.
If The Timing Belt Turns The Camshaft, Which It Does. And The Belt Is Broken The Camshaft Will Not Open And Close The Valves . IT CAN NOT START OR RUN> No. It might start but wont run very well because it wont know when to fire with out the timing belt.
a timing chain has broken
car want start timing and water pump on the same belt
if fails to start or it dies randomly.
Yes, a broken chain or chain that is worn so bad it has jumped a tooth or 2 can cause the vehicle not to start.
If it i broken, your engine will not start. If it is worn, your engine may run rough.
Could be broken timing belt. Do the spark plugs have spark?
Engine will not start and will turn over much faster than normal
out of time timing chain or belt jumped or broken keyway for gears
check timing chain/belt to see if it is broken
no the car will not start timing has to be set again
The igniter has gone out. The part cost about $100.
