SOURCE: changed spark plugs and wires now car wont start

I know this might be obvious but the obvious is often the problem. Did you replace the coil wire that goes from your coil to the distributor cap? Also, double check to be sure that your wires are connected in the correct order. A little more clarification might help. Does it turn over? Does it just click? When you turn the ignition key then let off does the car clunk or make a wheezing sound?

SOURCE: car wont start

It is very bad to let your car run out of gas. You may need to give it exessive amount of gas when starting it.

Have you checked compression on more than one cyclinder? I once broke a camshaft on an old truck and it died instantly. Things looked normal at two of the cylinders but not on the others.

99 Cutlass hard to start, when started runs for @5 seconds and stalls

This is one off the symptoms of a failed antitheft system which is extremely common on GM vehicles. Go to this link for info. Compare symptoms. Look for a light on the dash that says "security". If you see that light, then it's 100% an antitheft security issue.

'99 olds cutlass, not out of gas new battery and it will crank but won't start had a couple flats so I got a ride for a few. now won't start.

check your pistributer to make sure that you're getting spark. pull the rotor cap and turn the key to see if it's sparking. it's best to replace those once a year to 18 months anyways...the cap and rotor are cheap and i've had 2 go on me in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the ounce of prevention......

Transmission will not shift into drive or reverse when first started

if youre only talking about a few second delay, thats normal. start the vehicle, wait 5 seconds, step on the brake and you should hear the shift lock solenoid engage and allow you to shift.
