Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

Open Question

My 91 cevy caprice won't start or turn over!

We were driving down the road one day and in just quit, we towed it back because it wouldn't start or turn over even when boosted by another car. We tried charging the battery but that also didn't work. The car makes a sort of clicking sound from the dash when the key is engaged. My father said it may of been the timeing chain but i don't know where that is or how to fix this! Could this be the problem, or could this be somthing else? HELP I NEED THIS CAR TO RUN!!

    Are you sure the clicking sound isn't coming from the starter? Try checking the connection from battery to starter which is located under car on passenger side.

SOURCE: clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

Have you checked your starter. Just had this same thing happen with a 93 Chevrolet Pickup where the solienoid connection had gone bad. (wiggled) He and his friends were replacing batteries, pulled the positive lead on the starter and it got enough connection to start. Replaced it the next day doing fine.

SOURCE: New alternator didn't charge battery. (2VDC

As the car re-started, the battery is not flat.
The voltages measured indicate a problem with either the power or ground connection in the circuit between the alternator and the battery.

You likely have a intermittent / poor ground connection somewhere in the power system.
Check battery terminals are clean and firmly attached.
Check battery cable and alternator ground connections are intact and in good order.

your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

First place I would check are the battery terminals. Remove them and clean the posts, re-attach and tighten them. You can buy a tool for cleaning the posts at your local auto store.

If the fuel wasn't stabilized with a special chemical you may have a big problem, if it won't start in a reasonable time you will need to flush the entire fuel system with clean gas and quite possibly rebuild the carburetor. The other fluids should be replaced but that is not critical. Make sure the brakes don't leak at the wheel cylinders, drive it a short distance and apply the brake multiple times and check for a sinking pedal or had to stop. Repair as needed before driving any further

I have a problem with my 2004 impala 3.8 V6 I will drive down the road and it will randomly die and won't start back up. It will turn over and everything but won't start. But if you let it


Possibly a crankshaft position sensor had the same problem with one of my former vehicles. Be careful buying a new one though it is an electronic part and it is not returnable at most part stores. That is what it sounds like to me though.

Sounds like it could be a similar issue to what I just went through. My car wouldn't start on two separate occasions after I had refilled my tank. First time happened a little over a month ago, the starter would crank, and crank, but no signs of life in the engine. Tested the spark plugs, I was getting spark, but the ****** wouldn't start.
Had it towed to the dealership, and they said after 4 long attempts, they got it to start. I took it home, and the next morning I couldn't start it again. Towed it back a second time, and it started right up for them. Drove it back home again and a a month later things started acting up again.
A few days ago the wife pulled the car out of the garage, where the car was level, stopped the car on our slanted driveway and when she came back to start it just minutes later, it hesitated, but did turn over. I filled up the tank and the very next morning, I could not start my car again.
Called for a tow from AAA, and the driver said "let me try something". Pulled out a hammer, and wacked the bottom of my gas tank 4 or 5 times. The tow guy gets in, tuns the ignition to engage the fuel pump (didn't turn the key all the way), he does this about 4 times, then the very next turn of the key it starts right up. The driver said it sounded like a bad fuel pump.
I drive the car back to the dealership (this is the third time) and talk to the same guy I had dealt with all along. He calls me later in the day to tell me they finally got it to not start and were able to isolate the problem to the fuel pump sensor. They replaced the fuel pump assembly and I was off and running.
Hope this helps!

Could be the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the fuel tank a few times while someone try's to start it, if it starts then the pump is on it's way out.
