    When attempting to start, the starter sounds as tho' it is "over speed" suggesting no compression in the cylinder(s) ????

Hi you find your timming belts gone just to make sure take the top timming cover off get someone to turn the engine over see if the camshaft sprocket is turning you will the crankshaft pulley is but the the camshafts not if you were doing any speed at all i suspect the valves will bent to if you were doing a low speed you may be lucky put a belt on and do a compression test yates210456

    correct what happens is the camshaft operates the valves which makes the cylinders air tight whats happening with yours is when the belts gone the camshaft not closing the valves so no compression and the pistons just wizz round i will be surprised is its not this best of luck yates210456

My 1988 Jeep won't start when I crank over the engine. It will turn the motor over a few times then I lose battery power. With a cold start it sometimes will start on first attempt but it has gott

it sounds like the starter is bad but first run a pair of jumper cables from the battery to the starter and the other jumper on the ground side just to make sure you don't have a bad cable larger parts stores can test it off the car if you bring it to them

97 cavalier started fine drove it , parked it came back starter would not turn over,coasted it and it started will not start now.thanks car is a manual trans.

You probably have a bad connection at the battery or at the starter. Clean all connections & attempt to restart. You may also have a problem with the starter in which case remove & replace. Good luck!

Will not start. Get clicking noise. Battery is OK.

have someone hit the starter with a hammer while you attempt to start it. not hard enough to break it tho. if it starts... .replace the starter. also test the voltage of the battery when you attempt to start it.... if the voltage drops more then one or two volts you will need to replace the battery. perhaps try getting a boost to see if that works out

New starter and battery and the car wont start!

Cadillac DeVille no year given
The problem may be caused by the starter relay, fuse, or fusible link. The fuse is easy enough to check.
You can check the fusible link. Sometimes they get corroded or melt and break the circuit.

The starter relay is most likely the problem. Since you did not give a model year.
I can only guest the location of the relay.
Look under the hood on the drivers side, right above the wheel well. Look for a black box. the relays are inside.
If not you can give your model year.

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.

Check the power cable going to the starter. If even a little bit loose it may cause your problem.
