Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Car wont start

I got up this morning-and my car had been working fine yesterday. So i got up and went to start my car like usual-it keeps firing but wont start. I had just filled the tank full yesterday. It has never done this before, so im not sure what the problem could be. I let it sit for about an hour and tried again and still won't work. My Dad thinks the engine could be flooded or something could be wrong w/ the timing belt. Im not sure-any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

The problems could be:
1- Check your spark plug. -see any fire come out- " dirty or clean"
2- check the crankshaft sensor - ( you can clean it)
3- check to see the gas go to the fuel injector/caburator line
* If your car use caburator- you may have gas over flood in the cabu. like your father said. IF there is no gas flood- try to spay the cabuator start bottle that you can buy any where in car part store.
I have all three different problems above since I am driven. Good luck.
