If you have to crank the engine a long time to get it to start, the problem could be a faulty fuel pump relay, or check valve in the fuel pump.
The relay may not power the pump until you get oil pressure, and the check valve may let fuel flow back into the tank when the engine is off which would require you to build pressure back up again.

2001 dodge caravan tries to start,but doesnt crank until the 3/4th crank. any ideas? new battery


Do you mean it doesn't start right away? Or does it take 3 or 4 attempts to start up? If it's turning over your battery is fine. If it's not firing that could be a whole bucket load of problems.

Turns over but will not crank, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes isn't crank for days. Lately usually onlycrankswhen it above 70degrees, sometimes it smells like its flooded. We rep


-Take a look at the battery CCA (Cold crank amperage). Sounds like
it's low amp.
-If it click but not start or turn that mean the starter has dirty contact or bad connector between battery and starter.

Good luck

2000 olds 3.5 Dohc. Changed fuel filter checked fuel pressure @40 lbs resting cranking 45 lbs When i try and start it in the morning indoors won't fire crank the key to acc then on then back to acc then...


Which is the problem, no fire, or no crank. No fire means to spark to engine, but engine turns over fine. No crank means engine won't turn over when key is turned. I'm assuming engine will not turn over. Three most common problems. 1. Weak battery (get tested at auto parts store). Will hold charge for short time once started, but loses it when sits overnight. 2. Bad starter. Possible but not likely, still not out of the question. 3. Bad battery cables. This is an easy test. Take a pair of jumper cables and bypass the battery cables by connecting black side of jumper cable to "-" of battery and block of engine, and red of jumper cables to "+" of battery and (tap) Battery terminal post on starter...engine should turn over. Ensure you take all safety precautions to prevent car from moving during this procedure. Best of luck resolving this problem.

My 89 buick century 2.5L is hard to start


-You mean. crank 3-4 times before it fire...?
If so. Possibly dirty injector, low fuel pressure.
-Or you mean you turn the key 3-4 time before the starter crank...?
If so. Solenoid has dirty contact or bad connector.

I have a 1994 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 manual, will turn over but not crank. What could it be?


turn over and crank, mean the same thing. do you mean will not crank? or cranks but wont run? it could be anything. you need to figure out "if" it does crank, but wont run, is it missing spark or fuel?

Car does not crank it would turn over but it would not crank


Crank means turn over.Do you mean that it is cranking but not starting?If so then make sure you have spark to the plugs.If spark is good then see if you have fuel pressure.You have to find out if you are not getting spark or fuel.Hope this helps.

When starting car, takes 8-10 sec to turn over.


Do you mean 8 to 10 seconds to START? Turn over means the engine is turning or cranking BUT starting is when the engine is actually running. I think you might have a fuel problem like your loosing your prime. Turn the key off wait 15 sec. then turn the key ON not cranking it repeat this (3x) if the car starts immediatedly your fuel pump is loosing its prime or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking.
