After sitting for a long time my Honda has a hard time starting. I have forun that it isn't a ignition problem rather a compression problem. Try about a tablespoon of 10w30 down the spark plug holes. turn the motor over then replace the plugs.

I have a 2001 dodge durango slt I started it and there was a grinding noise drove it to the store and put in a bottle of transmision fluid in and the noise was still there . Tryed to stop at a light and...


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.

Car sat for two years there is no spark and i can't hear the fuel pump working what other problems could i have ( installed a new ignition coil)


So you have no crank no start correct?
Battery must be fully charged ( three day charge) or new.Make sure battery cables are clean and tight.
Use meter and make sure B+ making it to starter .
If B+ not at starter then check cable to starter and neutral safety switch and ignition switch.

This is for crank no start

B+ goes from battery to Ignition switch to coil to switching device( ignition module) to plug.
use a volt meter and find out where B+ stops.

2004 mazda rx8 cranks but won't start


Sounds like you flooded it not with water but with fuel due to moving car with out warming it up all the way before shutting it off. You can take it to the dealer and get a flash update to prevent this in the future. To deflood remove spark plugs and let sit with fan on them over night to dry out. Replace and start cranking for 15 seconds at a time till she starts up. GL!
