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.

Not totally clear on your situation. If your car will start after setting for a while (let's say several hours), and will idle fine but then die after being driven, only to not start again for some time (an hour or even longer) then you are pulling garbage from your tank into the strainer in the fuel pick up. You probably need to have your tank cleaned. Good time to replace filters as well.

My lexus gx470 failed to start last week after driving fine to location. There was no response to turning key. All dash and controls worked and activated but no cranking of motor, no clicking, just...

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.

I have an 1998 gmc safari van, it quit while driving down the road. I had a friend tow it home. we tried starting fluid in the intake. It will turn over fine, but wont start. What could be wrong?

It is the Ignition. If you put starting fluid in it, and it did not start, then you probably have no spark.

Check that you have spark to the spark plugs. If not, then check the vehicles' Ignition System, and repair as neccessary.
