Sounds like you have the engine locked somehow. Try turning the engine by putting a wrench on the front engine pully. If you cant turn the engine you may have something wrong ... like the clutch plate the wrong way round. What happens when you push the clutch pedal down ... does it feal right ?
I hope this helps

Just had clutch replaced on 2003 hyundi tiburon 2.0 now car wont start it turns over sounds like it wants to start but wont and it started fine b fot clutch was replaced comp said to change crankshaft...

If the problem is related to the clutch replacement, there is most likely an electrical connector that did not get plugged back in or a ground connector that did not get put back where it came from. I would also suspect wires getting pinched between the transmission bell housing and the engine block.

The best thing to do would be to scan the engine control module for fault codes. This could lead you to the problem which may, or may not, have anything to do with the clutch replacement.

Some of that model had an unusual clutch mechanism, which has probably broken due to wear. Read here

In the event yours is instead fitted with a hydraulic clutch, either

- the hose has split
- the clutch throwout lever has broken or collapsed

The 1991 mitsubishi did not have fancy anti theft just a starter imbolizercheck the battery make sure it can crank and the light can you light turn on and does the horn work? If you want to defeat it you will need a toothpick this is only if it is the starter relay at fault take the key out of the ignition put in neutral someone in the car to step on the brake just in case you do this in gear and it runs you over. Find the starter relay it in thhe engine fuse box location take the cover off the relay and expose the switch put it back in its socket collapse the relay and it should crank the starter now if this is a stick have the helper step on the clutch it should crank, now have them put the key on collapse the starter relay key on stpe on the slutch the car should start warm it up and turn it off get that tooth pick make the relay collapse start the car

When i turn the key the engine wont turn over but i have power to everything but the motor

is the car a manual transmission or an automatic? if manual there is a switch on the clutch pedal that wont let engine turn over unless clutch is pushed to floor.automatic it is mounted on transmission at the linkage.for auto trans you can move shifter back an forth while trying to crank engine. if manual you can push clutch pedal to floor hard an try to crank.

2004 vw Passat TDI 130bhp not starting after >8hrs

simplest answer first,and this does not apply to a hot engine,The engine heaters work from a time switch on the door(would you believe)and the routine is, open door,climb in,put on belt,put key in ignition and turn on when orange light goes out.this allows the cold start heaters time to work(about 20 secs).sounds a pain but the number of times this has been all it is,when you put key in ignition, the fuel pump charges the system.hence the squirt noise,also the car has to reccognise the key(immobiliser system)also try using wynns/redexe to clean injectors...
