Have you ever changed the timing belt? if broken, will crank with an "empty" type sound, loose. this is an interference engine which means the valves will collide with the pistons if engine becomes "out of time". ex. broken timing belt. best thing to do is put a new belt on and see if its ok. especially if it didnt break at engine speed. this is all if my hunch is right.

Check the battery cable where it connects to the engine block or gearbox. A 'bad earth' can cause the symptoms you describe.

How do i check to see if my fusible link is any good in my 1988 oldsmobile royale 88

If you are mechanically inclined, check for power at the starter when turning key to start. Where is your fusible link attached ? Try by passing starter solenoid, if engine turns over, you may have a bad starter.

Engine wont start

check that the ignition fusible link is intact. There may be an inertia switch that has shut down as it would recognise the spin out as an accident. Check with a service centre of an accredited auto electrician

My alternator wont charge my battery. both are new, new fuses, and wires and cables

Hi Paula, As both the battery and alternator have been replaced, there are only few remaining reasons why the alternator will not charge. Make sure of the socket connection being fitted correctly and that there is a good connection on each of the connectors inside the connector. Check and make sure the earth earth connection between the battery and the engine is correct and that both ends are tightened correctly. Inspect the 'Alt' fuse in the fuse holder and also the fusible link. Also make sure that the belt is tight. Regards John

Check all your battery connections, especially the ground wire to the engine. I would recommend cleaning all your battery connections and terminals on the starter.

New battery new batterycabel ends started ,now it wont even click no power to anything

Sounds like a fusible link burned out. Check the wires at the battery cable post of the starter. The smaller wires connected here are the fusible links if equipped. If not then check where the smaller positive cable off the battery goes to the fuse box. It will be connected to fuses there which could be burned out.

Engine not starting

check around the battery area under the hood, for what looks like wires with fuses . theyre called fusible links. its possible that they are bad. its also possible that the starter is bad, but the solenoid on the starter is ok. ALSO check for inline fuses in or around the battery area . my camaros have them, but they are generally for the fuel pump.

in your case , it seems as if the starter is bad.
