    Have you checked for spark and fuel? Year and mileage? Has it run at all since timing belt replacement?

    who changed the timing belt? Is the motor in time?

  • jrk05a May 11, 2010

    What does it sound like when you turn the key?... does it crank over?... are the other electrical systems working? (ex.: radio, lights etc...)

Check the fuel pump. If yo pull the fuel line to the carb and turn on the ignition you should get fuel pumping out of the line. Also check fuel filter under the right side of the car. If its clogged its not going to start.

My 1989 bronco II quit running going down the road and now it will not start back


Check all connections. Battery cables, switch to starter cables, make sure they are all tight. Make sure the starter is engaging and disengaging. Check the belts for looseness. The fact that you were driving when it happened say`s something is loose!

Car issues


WHAT CONDITION ARE YOUR BATTERY CABLES ? THEY MAY SEEM OK, BUT SOMETIMES REPLACEMENT IS NECESSARY ! BATTERY TERMINALS MUST BE CLEANED, SMEAR SOME VASOLINE ON TERMINALS BEFORE MOUNTING THEM, BESURE TERMINALS ARE TIGHT !!! THE (NEGATIVE) CABLE OR GROUND IS VERY IMPORTANT ! A GOOD CONNECTION IS PARAMOUNT !!! INSPECT STARTER/SOLONOID CONNECTIONS, THEY MUST BE CLEAN, PROPERLY CONNECTED , TIGHT !!! TIGHT IS TIGHT, TOO TIGHT IS BROKE !!! MAKE SURE BATTERY IS IN GOOD,CLEAN CONDITION, FULLY CHARGED !!! YOU DID REPLACE THE STARTER WITH A NEW SOLONOID I HOPE ! ITS THIS ELECTRO-MAGNET THAT INGAGES THE STARTER INTO THE FLYWHEEL TO CRANK THE ENGINE . THEY WORK TOGETHER ! TAPPING ON THE STARTER TELLS ME, POSSIBLE LOOSE CONNECTION, EITHER INSIDE OR OUTSIDE SOLONOID . ALTERNATOR PROBLEM ? TAKE TO AUTOPARTS STORE, HAVE THEM CHECK BOTH THE BATTERY & ALTERNATOR . ITS FREE ! CHECK THE ALTERNATOR BELT FOR WEAR, WHETHER ITS TIGHT, LOOSE, ETC., A WORN OR LOOSE BELT WILL SLIP, NOT ALLOWING THE ALTERNATOR TO DO ITS JOB, CHARGING THE BATTERY !!! ONE MORE THING, ITS IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE ENGINE TUNED-UP, ESPECIALLY BOTH AIR & FUEL FILTERS, SPARK PLUGS & PLUG WIRES SHOULD BE REPLACED AS WELL, THEY DO WEAR OUT !!! DISTRIBUTOR CAP & ROTOR NEED ATTENTION ALSO, REPLACE THEM ! BACK TOO YOUR SRARTER/SOLONOID, SOMETIMES EVEN NEW ELECTRICAL PARTS GO BAD, IT HAPPENS ALOT, THEY COME FROM MEXICO, CHINA, ETC., NEED I SAY MORE ???

My battery light has started coming on intermittently the past couple of days. What could this be? I did notice on the highway at night that the lights seemed to dim a couple of times and then come back...


You are at the beginning of a charging system problem. Items included are Alternator, battery, drive belts, wiring and ground circuits.
If you are a backyard guy, pull the alternator and get it bench tested.

Thank you for you help-- is a 1983 monte carlo 305 engine --The volts gage is dropping considerably. wen i start driving alternator brand new , battery good ,starter is good,wen the car is park my volt...


Check the votage of the battery with a volt tester in the DC mode and the probes reversed ( black on red red on black) if a reading of voltages shows of any amount, the diode is bad in the altenator

I have changed both the alternater and starter


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

My Alero "clicks" sometimes before it will start. Like it doesn't want to turn over. Could it be the battery or the starter??


Sounds like either a poor connection at the battery, ground, or starter. Could also be a problem with the starter/solenoid itself.
Start by checking the battery connections and the connections to the starter and engine on the large wires. I put in a new battery one time and didn't get one of the connections tight. I would work most of the time and then every now and then just click.

Sometimes alternater does not charge battery


Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge.  You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new.  Doesn't happen much but does happen.
