Hi,

I would interpret your post of "engine won't turn over" as it would not crank. Basically, cranking is accomplished with the starter motor, however, there are other components that could likewise affect the cranking:

  • battery, battery terminals, battery connector, battery ground to engine;
  • starter motor, bendix, starter relay;
  • ignition switch, ignition wiring/harness/connectors.
In some instances, failure to crank could also be caused by:
  • immobilizer/alarm system;
  • automatic transmission not in park or neutral or gear position switch/sensor misaligned/malfunctioning.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls check above itemized parts, post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

To start you can disconnect battery cable for ten minutes and see if this clears the problem.

Usually you need to replace the ignition block, it is faulty and is not closing the contact when you turn the key.

If the contact is not caused by a faulty ignition barrel, but by a contact on wirings going to ignition, then the instrument panel will stay on even after disconnecting ignition contacts.

After unplugging battery you will be asked your car stereo code, keep the code at hand before unplugging, usually you find the code with car documents.

if rotor (this is the one that turns and not the distributor), then its either your starter is broken or you have a drained battery.

also, for worst cases, your timing belt/chain is broken

93 jeep won't crank. It is not turning over so to


Sluggish engine turnover can be the battery but won't be caused by gas. A problem related to gas would be more apparent after the engine is running.

Engine won't crank. What could be the problem


Hi Scott, What do you mean by 'won't crank?' Is the engine turning on the starter but refusing to start or is the engine failing to crank (turn over). If its the latter, try replacing the battery. If its the first option then send more details and we'll try to help out. Regards John

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.

1993 gmc 1500 350cid - engine turns over but will not start. Fuel is good


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If it's not turning over then the problem will be on the firing. If there's no current to the plugs, the engine won't fire up. Few things to look at to resolve the issue... First, the ignition coil can be faulty. Second, The ignition switch can be faulty. Third will be the starter. If it's faulty, it won't kick the flywheel. One good reason why it won't turn over.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
