Why would an 2005 Town and country van with a 3.8 engine start and sound/run good for a couple of seconds and then starts missing real bad.

Crankshaft position sensor maybe , throttle position sensor , coolant temp. sensor etc.... It could be a lot of thing's . Instead of buying this part an that part ,take it an have it diagnosed . To a good ASE certified repair shop . Unless you like buying unneeded parts .

Battery went flat, I charged battery, and now it won't start, fire.

Here are trouble shooting tips.
Most common answers you will hear, are it's the battery old or you may just need to check and clean the terminals for a good connection. Can take battery to local car parts place and have them check it.
Alternator - but if you have headlights working and they are not real dim its probably not.
Starter - but if the engine is cranking, prob. not.

Audi A6 2000 wont start

you have lost the immobilizer code. have you tried ignition to number 2 with lights on and press fob to lock then unlock doors. then try to start the engine. a flat battery for to long can wipe the code of the fob and ecu link if the battery has been off or flat for a to long period. only way to repair lost codes is a tec2 and your pass code for your vehicle. and if you dont have the pass code it can cost a fair bit to get the code from a dealer as they keep them on file for years then they get put back to back up after then and can take a bit of finding. if you battery in the future if you have a battery fail its best to put a good battery on again as soon as posible to stop this happening again.

Suzuki wagon r+gl check engine light keeps flashing and wont start after battery change

the engine (there are more than one engine)
has a distributor.
"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

2000 ford escort zx2 wont start

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.

1990 corolla cranks fine but won't start. What is the troubleshooting process?

check to see if the timing belt is still moving the cams. you should be able to remove a couple of bolts on the top of the timing cover and pull the cover back far enough to see the belt.

You can also look in the oil fill cap, you may be able to see the cam.

you can also remove the distributor cap to see if the rotor is turning.

If the belt is fine than check for spark and fuel pressure.

My bet is the timing belt. Especially if the engine sounds like it is turning over faster than normal.

Ran over immobilizer gadget for a 2000 toyota corolla. Now the car won't start what can i do?

2000 its aftermarket two ways remove the alarm and do away with it or find the switch to turn it off its either a small red button you press as you crank to start the engine or its a small micro switch. Better yet remove it. go under the dash you will have to remove the panel to access the relay find where the aftermarket alarm installer spliced into the ignition switch follow the wire colors thhere cut it and restore it back the way it was two colors from ignition will now match there use a but connection or solder the wire back together and wrap electrical tape to protect it from shorting out.or you can just drive it to a shop that know how to repair and remove the alarm you need two person . some one in the car and someone direct the starter by jumping the solenoid to battery with thhe ignition in the on position and someone in the vehicle so it doesnt take off and run you over
