Could be a neutral safety switch or sounds like even a "dead" spot in the starter motor itself, may be try tapping on the starter with a piece of wood or rubber mallet. Don't recommend a metal hammer to tap with may cause damage

SOURCE: starting problem

Had similar problem with a Gemini. Try releasing the petrol filler cap before starting to equalise fuel tank/fuel line pressures.

SOURCE: tinny clicking noise

Hi! have you physically removed the wheel? if not then a good inspection off the vehicle may help. Check the circumference of the tyre for a tack/nail then look around the inside of the wheel for signs of chaffing or rubbing.
Maybe your Discs are showing too much corrosion around the edge and just touching the caliper, a scrape with a decent file would cure it.

SOURCE: 91 Accord Car will initially start then when

I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.

Gently pull handle until you hear and see the latch click into the open position...Let me know how You make out. BTW: Toyota Camry has the same set up,same color as Good Luck!

1998 Mazda B4000 truck wont start sometimes

When you say it won't start, do you have any power at all, does the radio play? Does it click or make a noise of any kind? Is it a cold non start or a warmed up non start? There are a lot of factors to consider in a non start. I still have an occasional cold non start, with full power to my lights, radio, etc. Don't want to make myself sound dumb, but for me it was gear shift (controller). Not really the safety neutral switch, but put it in neutral or move the gear lever and my car would start right away. Chances are while waiting to let it start up you have hit the handle a few times and maybe knocked into position to let it start. If this isn't your problem more info is needed.

1999 chevy cavalier transmission won't shift into

1999 cavelier manual trans: My son was shifting his manual trans really rough (ramming through the gears to try to beat someone out at a light) and ended up not being able to put it into anything but 3 and 4 (straight up and down). We noticed that the shifter cable, that actuates the position of the arm on the transmission, had pulled away from a "c" clip and was not held into place about 8-10 inches down the cable away from the trans. The cable needs to be secured into that clip in order to let the wire inside move the trans. lever to shift. Otherwise you will be stuck on what ever "rail" your trans is on at the time of disconnection. It would be the first thing that I would check.

My 1999 saab 9-3 seems to have a stuck handbrake. Can I drive it? I can't move lever up or down, button does not affect the lever. I am on Eastern Shore of Md. on a Sat. of course when I find this out.

If the handbrake is stuck on, with the brakes engaged, NO you should not drive it, as the brakes will overheat, or not move at all if fully engaged. If you aren't sure if they are engaged, it's easy to test. Just put the car in gear and try to drive ahead, on a flat surface. If the car goes forward without stepping on the gas, the brake is not engaged, and you can drive it. If you give it some gas, and it feels like it's holding back, or not moving, the brake is on and it shouldn't be driven. Is the brake handle in the down position ? If so, the button to move it is probably broken, and needs to be replaced, if it is stuck in the up, or on position, try pulling up and pushing the button in at the same time, it should release. Let me know how you make out. Good luck! Curt
