My car has plenty of battery to start car but car will not turn over.we traveled about10 miles and car would not start.let car sit for10 minutes cr started .new battery even though we had all lights.

When you say travelled 10 miles then would not start, do you mean it would not crank at all, or cranks but doesn't start? If no crank, could be faulty starter motor/solenoid getting heat soaked. If it cranks but won't fire up, more likely bad ignition module, coil, crank or cam sensor. They get hot and can fail just when hot.

Why is it overheating still? i changed the reservor. now it doesnt want to turn over

Clarify some things. Terms: Crank means the starter works and makes the motor turn over. The motor might not start though. So which one is it?

The engine cranks but don't start

You are from the south I will presume, it turns over meaning the crankshaft is turning but won't start. The fact that it overheated to the point of cutting off is not good, most motors today are aluminum and excessive heat and aluminum do not play well. I would guess that you have at least warped the cylinder head causing loss of compression. Pull the dipstick and see if it has signs of moisture, this usually doesn't turn out to well though my friend.

My truck has an intermittent click and won't turn over

The battery has to have 11 or more volts and at least 150amps to crank a Ford starter. If the battery is low, or has a dead cell, or the connections between the starter and battery are not clean, it won't crank.

My 1990 3.0 Toyota 4 runner won't start in the cold

If you have spark and fuel, the next stop would be either the crank position or camshaft position sensors.Either one of those can stop the engine from firing.

My 1996 Lincoln Town Car will not start, as if a kill switch was set. the car runs fine for days and for no reason it won't start, I though it was the anti theft circuit, but have not been able to...

Your best bet , take it an have some testing done . Fuel system , engine management system , electrical system test etc.... Could be any number of thing's ,guessing an just replacing parts doesn't work . Won't start how ? When you turn the key to start does the starter spin the engine ? Crank - no - start ! Or you turn the key an nothing happens ? No crank no start .

Car won,t fire up but trying to turn over its as

Lots of reasoons for a no start this answer is as if it was running OK just the other day and was starting OK. The gas tank has gas? Spinning real freely indicates to me that the timing belt broke. The oil cap off the valve cover look in there to see the cam and crank engine you should see it turn. The fuel pump may not be coming on. The fuel filter could be frozen not letting the gas go though. The spark may not be happening as A senser or also a plug wire or other wire off inspection of these things something off can be the only problem
