Check to see if your getting spark. Pull one plug whire at a time. with plug in wire. resting on engine (not holding) have someone turn the car over look for spark.

If you have spark in all cylinders. Also check to see if your getting gas.

Check ignition switch as these have been issue for me in the past. Use multimeter and test switch

Got 2000 buick regal wont start turns over trys to start but doesnt


Could be multiple issues.
#1 Is there gas in the tank? #2 is it bad gas ? (car sitting awhile) may need to put HEET in it and put in some good gas. You may have water in your fuel line. #3 is your fuel pump working? Your fuel pump relay may be bad. Hard to answer online.
Sounds like your battery is good and you are getting spark? I'd ask a local mechanic to take a look & trouble shoot.

Car wont start


gas light normally means no fuel.. must add at least 1/4 tank to the vehicle..may have frozen lines or air in them..put gas in it..turn the key on and off without cranking the engine about 6-8 times to activate the fuel pump ..you should hear the pump come on for about 2-3 seconds..then try to start.. if it wont start.. need to bleed air out by opening fuel line near the top of the engine by the tbi unit..once all gas comes out.. reconnect it and try to start...dont let get below 1/4 tank in cold weather...forms ice in the tank..

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.

I put gas in my 2005 3500 diesel truck (chevy) and a mile down the road the truck just shut off. So i pumped out all of the gas, then put treatment and diesel back into the truck. Tried to start the truck...


Did you change the fuel filter or bleed the injector lines? You need to get that gas out of the system if you haven't already. Once the filter is changed and filled with diesel I would loosen the injector lines and crank the engine until the gas is cleared out of the lines. Tighten the lines and see what happens.

I PUT A NEW BATTERY IN MY VOLKESWAGEN CABRIO AND IT WONT IDIOL NOW BEFORE THE BATTERY CHANGE IT IDOLED FINE


Turn the key to on, do not start the engine. Press the gas to the floor and hold it there for 5 seconds. Release the gas. Start the car.
This will relearn throttle position.

My 2003 sunfire wont start. Tried charging the battery, still wont start. (It's really cold outside) It does have command start (could that be the problem?)


If it is turning over but not starting, I would put it in a warm garage and let it thaw out for awhile or out gasline antifreeze in the gas tank and let sit for couple of hours turning the key on periodically to pump gas into libes with the deicer because it sounds like a frozen gas line. Let me know if we need to go further

Car has set for a year, but was working fine before it began to sit. Now when I try to start it it wont start. Changed the battery and sprayed starter fluid in the carburetor, it started for a moment then...


This may be a fuel injected engine. On some vechicles when they run out of gas you have to turn the key, but not try to start the car. Give it a few seconds for the gas to feed back through the gas line. Once you turn the key, the fuel pump will start pumping the gas to the engine for the carburator. If that does not work, then give it a little gas, no too much or you could flood the carburator. Try to start the car again.
