If it cranks but won't start, and all of the wires are back on the starter, you'll need to check for spark and fuel pressure as with any no start situation.
Is the security light on ?

SOURCE: engine want crank

an IC (internal combustion ) engine is dependent on the spark timing for initial start (crank).here since most of it was remanufactured , the spark timing is at fault.
TIME the spark a few degrees before TDC and see the difference .i hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: i just replaced the starter on a 1998 cavilier.

I seem to have the same problem. With the ignition, the car wont start, but if i turn to on and complete the circuit under the car on the starter, it starts right up. The weird thing is that it starts in neutral. changing the stick does nothing. Makes me think the sensor or cable on my shifter is bad. Maybe your ignition wont start the engine because it is not reading ur car is in park? anyhow, thought id drop my 2 cents.

SOURCE: engine will not crank, car just stopped running,

If there were no codes present upon initial inspection, check for fuel pressure and replace the pump if nothing or little is present. This is most likely with no codes. Also replace the filter. Let me know if you need instructions on pump replacement.

Put motor in chevrolet 1500 pickup and now engine wont crank at all, starter wont turn over

What is model year? Sometimes when you replace engine you may need the computer from donor vehicle as well? Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good? You can turn crank by hand, correct? The engine isn't seized? The starter motor usually has two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and may be wired through the neutral switch for automatic tranny. The starter motor usually grounds through engine block. So, grounds are important.
You can take starter motor off, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from charged battery to starter motor, at the least, it should kick out drive gear and spin.

Sounds like the motor is frozen. Remove all plugs and see if the starter can turn over the engine . If not that baby is seized if you are sure that the battery is good. Granted, I can understand your chagrin since to the best of your knowledge that engine did not over heat. Get another diagnosis and cross your fingers.

Likely either the starter or solenoid. Solenoid is a combination of relay and actuator, pushing the starter's gear into engagement with your flywheel.

Will knock sensor make a hhr not crank

Not to my knowledge. The knock sensor is to actually retard timing when the engine pings or knocks. Check for power at the B+ at the starter. Also check for power from the ignition on switch at the starter while the key is in the crank position. If no power at B+ check for open or loose connection or blown fuse. I no power from ignition check for loose connection or open in the wire and check ignition switch as well. If you have power in both and the starter doesn\'t engage replace the starter. Before all this make sure your battery is good and connections are clean and tight.

Radiator replacement now car wont start

wont crank fast
or cranks ok but wont start.
you must have knocked something loose. a wire or connector.
check carefully.
unless the reason for new parts, was overheating. DID IT?
if yes, compression test is next.
the 3 majors: are
  1. compression over 150psi.
  2. spark on all cylinders
  3. and fueling correct.
1,2,3, on all gas engines. in that order too.
going backwards while fun? is fail.

Noise my 03 xterra makes when I crank it up. One guy said exhaust manifold and another said knock sensor. Just need a second opinion.

Many times a bad starter motor makes noise like clanking, clicking or grinding when crank the engine. Replace the starter. Sometimes, if the starter motor is grinding the gears on the flywheel, the engine will have a metallic grating sound when you first crank it. This type of starter noise is normally indicative of a starter motor that is worn and about to fail. If you do need to replace your starter this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews

I have a 96 cobra when i turn the key everything comes on but it wont turn over

first of all have the battery tested, but its probably a bad starter. test for power at the starter, if 12volts on both positive wires when in crank mode wiring is ok.have someone knock on the starter with a hammer while the key is held in crank mode, if car starts replace the starter. if not attempt to turn the crankshaft by using a socket and breaker bar, on the bolt that holds the crank pully on. if unable to move crankshaft replace the engine

Starter motors good but wont turn over my1982 lincoln continental

When you say the starter motor runs, do you mean it runs fast but does not turn the engine, in that case it may be something to do with starter not engaging the ring gear.

If when the starter runs it turns the engine slowly then it could be starter is not getting enough power.

The reasons for starter motor not getting enough power can be, a bad battery, loose battery connector, stiff engine or a bad starter solenoid.
To check a bad battery, turn your head lights on and when you try to crank the engine, if the light go dim, you have a bad battery or a bad battery connection. If the lights are not affected you may have a stiff engine.
