1991 mazda 323 won't start does not turn over

Has new battery, new oil changed. Checked radiator day before, found small leak at loose cable, tightened cables. Hear hum sound when turn key, but no sounds of car trying to turn over. Radiator guy noted oil leaking from somewhere. Looks like it was gradual over time. The day came out of a store and car not starting. AAA thought it was starter. I haven't had a tune up for awhile since I don't drive the car tons.

When you try to start the car, do you see all the dash light on? If on, check the starter relay, normally the relay fail. If no light on, check the mail relay. Let me know.

Testimonial: "Yes, lights, radio strong. No sound of even trying to turn over. Just hum sound that the car is "on." Radiator guy noticed signs of oil leaking onto whatever is to the right and below the Oil container, never leaks out of the car so I never noticed it. He wiped what he could of the oil off so I could "keep an eye on it." The next day the car stopped and is still the same."

SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

SOURCE: 1991 Honda del Sol Overheating and funny idle

The idle problem kinda sounds like the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve on the intake manifold. Another idea is maybe coolant temp. sensor. And if it's leakings coolant still after replacing all those parts then i would say maybe the water pump is leaking since i believe on those motors its by the timing belt which is behind the plastic cover on the motor so maybe that's why you're not seeing fluid so much because it's in there. Hope some of this helpes, good luck.

SOURCE: car is overheating after short drive (3/4 hour)

The expansion tank will be more full when hot. Let it cool down and check it then. The level in the axpansion tank should go lower. If not then you may have a faulty radiator cap.
Also have you checked the cooling fan? Engine driven? With the engine off, spin the blade. Does it spin real freely? Continue to spin for more than a quick second? May have a bad fan clutch. They have fluid inside and the fluid can leak out of the seals after age.

The oil plug for the engine oil drain,is on the engine sump,which is under the engine and after you lift it up on stands,you will locate it about 20-25 cm far from the Crankshaft pulley which rotates when the engine is running with a belt for alternator,and this plug is facing the location of the front seat passenger if is left hand driven.By using a 19 mm ring spanner loose and remove -by having a drainer under -leaving the oil to come out.

Hi I just bought a 2004 Mazda 323 and I had to turn the key twice to start it. The next day it wouldnt start at all until I charged the battery with jumper cables. The third day it wouldnt start again even...

if you go by the green light on the top of the battery that is a false indicator it only shows the one cell of the battery it is in,so that cell could be good and the rest could be bright were the lights when turned on,I would take the battery out and have it checked out.If you do have a new battery installed then have the alternator checked also just for piece of mind if the alternator is going bad it will kill a new battery fairly quickly.Ill be will to bet it's just the battery I hope this helped good luck
