Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Hi, I had the same problem this morning when I put my fob in all the lights radio etc came on yet when I pushed my button to start the vehicle nothing just a click. The battery was fine all the connections were fine.....turns out that the anti theft system was not talking to the fob, hence the car thought it was being stolen and would not start! Simple fix! I hope this is all it is for you.

SOURCE: BMW 320i is using 5L of oil every 1000miles no

Try using an automotive dye in the oil the oil has to be going somewhere the dye should reveal the loose gasket or loose oil plug in which the leak may only occur at speed under pressure and not present when stopped

SOURCE: Battery drained completely BMW E90 2005 model

Connect your old battery with another battery from another car (WHILE KEEPING ALL CABLES CONNECTED ON BOTH CARS) just user a bridge cable otherwise you'll need. a code to reactivate your BMW again. Try now to start your BMW engine. Now go to the nearest battery dealer to change the battery WHILE KEEPING YOUR ENGINE ON, otherwise you'll need a code to activate your BMW again :)

Good Luck!

I have a BMW 320 CI SPORT, but fuel gauge is not working even when is fully tank. I don't know what is wrong. The amber light is constantly on. The fuel tank is not reading Please help with any suggestions


lift out the rear seat and remove the fuel pump and gauge unit. Cover the tank with a piece of plastic and tape and tape to stop fumes escaping. See if the float is still there. Check the follower on the level resistor. If the resister strip is black, try to gently clean it with a pencil eraser. Swing the arm up and down and see if your gauge moves

97 mercury mountaineer. won't start


hi,

watch your oil pressure when cranking, you have to have some oil pressure to get the fuel system to start. you may have to find the hot wire at the relay and energize it to see if it is indeed the fuel pump going out. if its been sitting and its a 97 the fuel pump just might have went, you can also try hitting the gas tank from the outside in the middle to see if that works too. have a water hose or fire extinguisher around when your working on fuel system and leave one of your battery cable a little loose..

Check spark plugs, leads, distributor cap & rotor arm, fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack(s), relays, replace any items that are suspect IE Fuel filter which has probably not been changed since new even though they should be changed on all vehicles every 18 months, all of this can be done at home & will save you a lot of bucks in mechanic/garage fees,

Engine turns over but wont start. 1997 gmc jimmy


Fuel Pump or starter. Since you say it's turning over but won't start I'd say it's your fuel pump. You'll probably have to drop your gas tank to fix this problem as your fuel pump is in the tank. You might be able to just loosen the straps and lower your tank a little to access it without removing the whole tank. Check around to local junk yards for this part and you'll probably find it for half the price as new. Make sure you can get your money back if the used pump doesn't work before you pay for it though. Don't forget to run fuel system cleaner (2 bottles to a full tank) once a month.

2004 z71 tahoe when the gas gauge is at a quarter of a tank it won't crank. It acts like it is empty with gas.


Check your fuel filter if it needs replacement. Empty it out then connect it back. Try to start it again. Inspect the fuel filter if it filled with gasoline. Check if there is noise at the fuel tank to check if the pump is working. If it did not, inspect the fuse for your fuel pump and the relay. If both are good you may connect the fuel pump directly to the battery to see if it works. It may be a bad wiring.

My car stoped running as if it were running out of gas but i have gas in it now it will only crank but not start it is a 92 BMW 320i


Has the fuel filter ever been replaced? Instructions are here. http://www.frontiernet.net/~papi/Filter.html
This car has two gas tanks, one on either side of the spare. The fuel pump that delivers fuel to the engine is on the right-hand side. When the left tank is less than half full, it requires a transfer pump to move the rest of the fuel over to the tank with the fuel delivery pump.
Those transfer pumps sometimes fail, or can simply come loose. When that happens, the car 'runs out of gas' though it still technically is one quarter full of fuel. It cannot access the rest of its fuel. This happened on my bosses '03 325 a few months ago.
If this is the problem, you can be sure to keep it more than half full of fuel until you can get it in to get it fixed.
