First of all check your fuses, make sure they are good, check the knock sensors there are 2, and then also check the speed sensor these components can cause a no start condition. Hope this helps.

Motor turns but won't start

Insure you have all wires on correct plugs (use firing order) and if still no spark, test ignition module and coil.

99 astro wont start?

They weren't very good mechanics. Sorry

Basics are to spray a little starting fluid into the intake and try to see if it's fuel related. Do this with an extinguisher handy. If it fires just a time of two, check for plugged fuel filter. Then check for dead fuel pump.

If it didn't hit a lick, pull one spark plug wire off, stick a screw driver in the lead, holding the insulated part of the driver hold it close to the motor and have someone turn it over to see if it has spark. If it does not, the computer is bad or the key switch may be bad.

You can take a paper clip in the computer plug under the dash and turn on the key. On the dash the lights will give you any defect codes. If you you are unsure, ask someone at a local parts house to help you.

Good Luck,

I try to jump start my 2001 vw beetle but it just keeps turning over and won't start. the last time it did it was bogging and died. ever since it just turns over but wont start.

sounds like your battery may be bad. take it to autozone to have it charged and tested for hold-charge. takes about an hour or so. and its free.

Wont start no spark no ballast resister

If it is a 1984,(like mine) follow the driver's side fender,under hood, to where it meets the fire wall.
just a few inches from the main plug for wiring harness, and you will find the ballast resister.
if a wire is off or lose, the truck will not start ,it may act like it might (only fires one cylinder and no others, what i call,"hit a lick","hit a lick) if wires are ok check resister.

My 1988 chevy 1500 350 truck died on me at a stop sign and would not start back it would turn over but not hit a lick! so i pulled it home and changed the ignition module it tested bad at the store. it...

I'm just thinking out loud. Turn the crank by hand while you watch the rotor, they should move together, if not, you got a problem.
Can you check cylinder compression, if compression is really bad, you may never get it to run right?
In the past on older vehicles, some of the them, the check engine lite wouldn't work, but, I could hook up a scanner that shows live engine data, hook- up to the aldl, it would show engine data, of course it wouldn't show codes.
