Question about 1996 Buick Roadmaster
I have a 1996 buick roadmaster and i drove it yesterday morning, and when i went out there to start it a couple hrs later and it wouldnt start. i took the battery up to get checked and they said the battery was good. the car makes a sound like its going to start but it wont turn over. the only two things i can think of is the spark plugs or maybe the starter. is there any way to tell if its 1 of those or which 1 it is and could the spark plugs cause it to not start? my email adress is firstname.lastname@example.org
You say the car sounds like it wants to start--does the engine crank when u turn the key? If the engine cranks (engine turns over is the same thing), then it's not the starter. so, if the engine is cranking over, u must check to see if you have spark at the spark plugs. It is possible for the car not to start because of bad spark plugs. How many miles since they were changed? Pull a couple out and inspect them to see if they need to be replaced. 1st thing to do is see if u have spark at plugs, then check to see if gas is getting to the plugs.

I just thought id let you know i got it running. it wasnt the fuel filter or the spark plugs, but those things needed changed out anyway so thanks for helping me through that. it actually turned out to be the fuel pump relay which was real easy to fix.thanks for all the help. i really do appreciate it

you will need to back off on the lock nut on the tie rod end then remove the tie rod end from spindle turn tie rod counting the number of turns to take it off put new tie rod the same number of turns put back in spindle and tighten lock nut your steering wheel will probably be off center so you will need to have the toe reset on the alignment machine
