Do you see any arching with the spark plugs

  • chevyowner Apr 15, 2009

    The starters are known for having shorts and may cause a car fire...see if there is any fraying or burning. There should be a warranty to replace your starter if this is the problem. Also double check your spark plug wires, they may need replacing you can get a set for around $30 or a really nice set for close to $100. Hope this solves your problem. If the car keeps "clicking" after you stop trying to turn it over then it IS the starter.

Starter wont turn engine over


Why did you change the starter in the first place? The battery need a full charge for the starter to operate properly, Need year make and model for more help. If the starter is grinding now and wasn't prior to replacement, it may have to be shimmed or the starter could be defective.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Car wont turn over,tested the starter,replaced the starter relay,new batt cables and batt,still wont turn over


Try the ignition switch (the actual part with the keys). You can actually try starting the car without using the keys. You can do this by hot wiring.

Have you tried bypassing the ignition? Turn the key to the on position and cross the starter terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts then you will need a new ignition or possibly a new ignition module.

I've got a 1994/L nissan primera 1600 16v Twin cam and for some reason it wont start off the key but if you bump start it it runs


ok,first off make sure your battery isnt dead,,,if thats ok then id suspect the starter motor,,does it sound like a clicking noise when you start,,its either one or the other anyway,,,if it starts off the key when you use jumper cables then you need a new batt,,hope that helps

New starter good batt. only clicks wont turn over 1995 montero


The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's

1988 5.7 TBI Nightmare This is the start of what the problem was and is, I had a RV cam installed when the engine was rebuilt a year ago. the cam was not a computer friendly cam so after a round with the rebuilder and discovering the specs weren't the correct ones for the cam I installed a 3702 edelbrock cam and lifters with a 7800 timing chain and gear set after I had tried two chips from Jet and no improved performance and the 3rd chip was to be for the cam and that is what is in the ECU now and I have tried about 5 different BCC chips and the bottom line is the power is there but something is happening its hit and miss the idle will sometimes lope, is stalled when first started and acts as if its starving for fuel or its bogged with to much fuel. the fuel pressure is 10 - 13 psi and I have R/R the TPS, IAC, ESC and knocks device , EGR and Solenoid, MAP, Temp sensor, and the Dist is a Procomp 10001 with a MSD-5526 coil. the Throttle Body was rebuild and the ECM was replaced with a Rebuilt ECM. it will smell rich etc. but with the things that goes on it does not show any codes?? I have no clue just feel stupid this is been a simple thing that is kicking my **** and now its a challenge but still loosing the fight too far in and too much spent to stop,. LOL Help !!!! The BCC is a california vehicle AFBX, 5.7TBI TH400 A/T P.S. the key can be turned of and back on as the engine not dying and seems to correct the power and run problems but will not last goes back to running bad or with problems. ?
