    Did You Mess With The Distributer? Will It Turn Just Not Start? Do All The Dash Lights Dim When You Turn The Key?

Its a sunfire , have a buddy sit in your car and you go to the back have him turn the key to the on position... not the run position and listen for a buzz or whiiirrrrrring sounds, do this several times if no noise chances are your fuel pump is dead, a common chev problem, if it has no noise you can try giving it a few good whacks where the fuel pump is located at the tank and try again more often than not this will get your fuel pump buzzing again and then you will know if your problem is at least in the front or the back..

My car died, now wont start what could be the problem. Its a 1997 pontiac sunfire.


If it is cranking and won't start, it could be many things. Check to see if your engine is getting fuel. If it is doing nothing, check the battery and the starter. Make sure your fuel pump is kicking on. You can also spray engine starter in the intake. If it starts and dies, you have a fuel problem. Check for fuses and relays to. Try all the simple test first. It will save you time and money. If car is getting fuel, it is probably a problem with the ignition system. The best way to look is to have your car coded. This test will lead you to the right path. Hope this helps.

Car stalled at stop sign. now wont start and run.


the 1st thing u do is get the electronic engine control system tested, there will be a fault code stored in the computers memory, most likely you lost spark due to a faulty crank sensor.

Wount turn over


Does it crank at all? If it doesn't even crank it could be your starter.
