  • Anonymous May 22, 2009

    I have a 2001 camaro, I was coming down a bridge and I was trying to get gas but the car will not acculate, then it started to shake and finally it turned off.....my boyfriend came and could not get it to start so we called a tow-truck once the tow-truck dropped the car we tried to turn it on again and it turned on. I tried to turn it on the next day and it started to smoke from the engine. what can be wrong?

When you say "wont turn over", do you mean wont start or engine wont crank? if the engine cranks and wont start, try holding gas pedal all the way to floor and crank engine for 10-15 seconds.does it attempt to start? if it starts, rev it up a couple times to clear all unused fuel from engine. may need tune-up, esp spark plugs. if still wont start. let me know and will try to guide you further

  1. hold gas pedal to floor while trying to start. do not pump pedal.
  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine

Car won't start


Does the car try to start at all when you turn key? If it does try but just won't start then it could be flooded. If you had it started and running the night before and say went arond o the store rewl quick and back home hen it wouldn't start the next morning.. I would bet money he engine is flooded. Its an expensive fix at dealer, but you can do I yourself for free with one socket and a few minutes.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

Will not start appears no gas


The most common reason a car will crank but not start and you smell gas is you flooded it. Too much gas to the engine causes too rich a fuel mixture and the fuel won't ignite.Click this link below for more troubleshooting :---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2012/01/car-will-not-start-and-smells-like-gas.html

I started the engine twice after the engine was already running...I assume I might have flooded the engine with fuel? But when I turned off the engine the car didn't start again and the Anti-Lock Light...


If the engine is running when you try to use the starter, it won't flood the engine, it is already running. What happens is the starter gear tries to lock into the flywheel and this causes the starter to spin faster then it is supposed to. It is likely you damaged the starter and it needs replaced. You can remove it and have Auto Zone test it for free.

Car not starting, oil in spark plugs. changed valve cover gasket and spark plug seals. still cant get the car to start. starter is turning engine turns over and getting spark. i can smell fuel coming from...


If you smell fuel in the exhaust the vehicle is flooding or there is no spark. If it is a carb engine, make sure that the choke is in and hold you foot flat on the pedal while trying to start, this will clear any flooding.
