SOURCE: engine surging no warning lights

Same problem. It runs worse with the air conditioning running, still doesn't fix it though. Also, Volvo will tell you the transmission is "sealed" but if you take it to a transmission place they can clean it out.

SOURCE: volvo xc90 key will turn from 0-1 but wont turn

Ok, this just happened in our 2000 V70. The key would turn to position 1, the srs light pops on, but the key refuses to turn to start the car and the shifter is stuck in park. I pulled the oil dipstick out, lightly coated the key on ALL sides, inserted it back into the ignition and turned it a little forcibly. It turned so I cycled it back and forth a few times and it was good to go. We were stuck so this was a last ditch attempt to get going....I would suggest using clean, 3 in 1 oil to lubricate the ignition.

SOURCE: The car cranks over but will not start. It was a

Hi, if the car suddenly sounds different when cranking, suspect the timing belt has slipped or broken. Possibly your crankshaft sensor was loose or packing up which led to a backfire, which reversed the crank direction and caused the belt to jump. I have pasted directions below from on how to remove your timing belt cover if you want to check the belt yourself. The last picture below shows the timing marks on the gears. If the belt is still intact, use a socket on your crankshaft pulley bolt to rotate the engine until the camshaft gears align with their marks. Then check the crankshaft gear at the bottom to see if it is aligned to it's mark. If not, your timing has slipped and you need a new belt. If the belt is bad, I can also supply directions for replacing it. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Truck wont start

Starter fluid won't work if the starter won't turn the engine over.

Get the battery load may not have enough juice to start the truck but have enough to light up the lights

check your fuses and battery connections at the starter. Is the anti theft light flashing? If it is that's your problem. Wait 10 minutes insert the key...wait for the theft light to go out before trying to start.

if that doesn't work you will need to get the starter checked...which means you will have to take it off.

Changed transmission fluid on crv now car wont start

might be that you accidentally disconnected the crank sensor close to the transmission, this gives a no start condition without a check engine light on most cars...

Ford excursion 2002 - starting fine but losing power and stalling after running for 10 minutes. Rest for about 5 minutes, then starts up again

Can you perform a spark test? I would like to know if it has spark when it stalls. Also, if you have a can of starter fluid, wait for it to stall and not want to restart, the quickly spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it runs on the starter fluid, you have a fuel issue. You might also want to make sure the engine coolant level is fine and you aren't overheating. If you coolant level is low you may not know it is overheating since the coolant sensor isn't in coolant. It won't read air.

Wont start when hot

The starter is effected by heat. Does the motor spin just as fast when trying to start it when the motor is hot? If it cranks real slow it is the starter. If it cranks over at the same speed it is not the starter.

Get an account on a mini cooper forum and post the question there. you could also try a small spray of starting fluid into the air cleaner. If it starts and stalls then it is a fuel delivery issue. If it does not start then remove a spark plug and verify that there is a spark as the motor cranks over. Check for any blown fuses.

A vacuum hose brokegoing into carb. cut some exses off car started but stalled again. got a new vacuum hose on it but now the car turns over but wont start?

Possible vapor lock, try using some starter fluid, spray just a touch in carb. Another thing, is keep gas pedal to floor, and trying to start. Do not pump pedal, just keep to floor as you crank over motor.
