    starter tested or not u have a defective starter solenoid, the main internal contacts are burned, u are not the 1st person who has been fooled by a stater test, the problem can be intermittent and then it it is done and u get only a click, take the starter soleoind apart u will find the contacts burnt and pitted.

Please check for loose ground wires. You should see these wires connected to the engine and the body of the car. There are several of them. Check each of them. You may also want to check the cables to the ignition coil or the ignition coil if it is working

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

I have a 1996 nssian maxima and i cant seem to start the car. i can start it up twice and then try it again and i wont work. i changed the battery and just yesterday i drove it a few miles and then the car...

I don't think you have a plug wire or spark plug issue. If the starter solenoid is clicking that is an indication of a bad connection somewhere in you starting system. I would check all of the wires in your starting system and make sure they are tight. You may also have a bad starter solenoid. Have your alternator checked fro proper output as well, any auto part store will do this check for free. Also have you battery load tested, just because it is putting out the correct voltage doesnt mean it is putting out enough amperage under load.

The car wont start when its cold .the batterie is new .the car just wont start at all.all you hear when you turn the key is the fule pump it dont click or nothing

You can try cleaning the battery terminals, there may be a bad connection. If you get someone to try to start the car while you watch the battery connections, there may be a spark indicating bad connection. Also if any of the terminals heats up, it also shows bad connection

My 2000 dodge neon wont start its not the battery i have put a new battery in it but it still wont crank over what could this be ?

Could be corroded terminals on the battery wires, starter motor, spark plugs, or intake air. I would look first at the terminal wires and make sure they're clean (if not you can scrub them with a baking soda and water solution then wipe dry). Then make sure you have spark and a clean air filter. If you're still having trouble you can bring the starter motor to Autozone to have it tested. If it's not one of these solutions, then it's going to be a problem in fuel delivery (fuel pump, fuel injectors, fuel filter).

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage DE dies when idling

with the battery fully charged try scraping the positive over the terminal on the battery and see if it sparks like a draw is sucking out amps if theres no draw on the battery it wont spark at all (good) if it sparks (bad) you have something grounded and killing your battery.. gl

Toyota 4runner wil not start

Check the Spark plugs, starter, or the battery wires. It depends on if it is trying to turn over or if its not doing anything at all. If its trying to turn over then its most likely your starter or spark plugs or could simply be its getting too much air due to a leak. If Its not doing anything at all no clicking nothing then its probably a problem with the battery wires. If its just making a clicking noise then its yoru starter.
