Don't know if this is needed now, but try the crank sensor.  I had the same problem years ago, and the crank sensor was the problem.  this is common in many 3.8 engines. i'm currently looking at another ninety-eight, and guess what...the crank sensor was replaced for the same reasons.

I would have everything tested first. Thats usually free at most auto part stores. It does sound like your alternator is starting to fail or possibly your battery.

make sure that it is in park or neutral wiggle a bit as you try to start, may not have enough powr to crank.. tap the starter with something as someone tries to start may have a weak starter.. check batt term for issues of corrosion. check alt belt tension...

Car will not start, just makes a clicking sound.


if when you jump it starts its your batt if if keeps dying it your alternator the clicking sound is your statrer which means thats good try the batt when you buy a new one it will have a warranty soo if it dies because the alt you will get a new one batt for free (the alt charges the batt)

My gmas 98 avenger (2.0) wont start. i bought her a batt about 6 mnths ago. it ran fine. but she let it sit for a week, now no start. batt is dead. afteri charge it wont turn or even make a sound, then...


Back to "square one" If battery was drained by a short, etc and sat for a week like that, likely the battery is now doa...Have it tested. Then start checking for source of drain...at this point everything is suspect. Put an ammeter between either battery cable and battery and start pulling fuses till draw is gone. then check system that fuse serves. Yes \, could be a bad alternator but you really should test before wasting time especially if it's not that.

1992 grand prix wont hold idle


I replaced a motor in a 97 and the engine was out for a few weeks and I never had a problem with an idle when I put it back together with a whole new engine. I would guess you forgot to plug something back in by the starter. Recheck everything you have done I think this is something simple.

2001 F350 Charging problems


actually the only thing i can recomend is to have the alternator replace again for warranty and before starting the truck charge the batteries very well with a baterie charger make sure to charge them individually because with a low batterie the alternator has to put a lot of load and might burnt again
specially with dual batterie.
