Probably your starter solenoid does not engage gear to catch the flywheel to turn your engine. If I'm correct you hear clicking and grinding. Let me know is this some of the simptoms.

It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

No fuel pressure


You should check the electrical system i.e do you have spark at the spark plug ends? If no then work on this. If yes then remove the spark plugs, put half a teaspoon of fuel into each cylinder and put the plugs back. Try starting the engine. If it does then fuel isn't getting to cylinders. If it doesn't then you need a valve or complete overhaul job,

I don't know beans about automatice transmissions and the average person can only check the fluid levels and take it to a transmission shop if it is more serious.
As far as the engine goes, you need to localize the problem because with the other indications it might not be the normal stuff. So, what I would recommend is that you take the serpentine belt off and try to turn the crank with a large wrench (CW only) with the car in neutral. If you can turn it, then it is probably not your engine freezing up. If it won't turn then the transmission is probably not disengaging from the flywheel - maybe the torque converter.

If it does turn over, then you can put the belt back on and try to jump start the car with another vehicle or the boost function on a battery charger. It it starts then you know to look at the charging system - battery, alternator. If it doesn't start then the starter or the starter reley.

Won`t start


o no! how deep?
my have sucked in water!
remove plugs, turn engine over water might come out of plug holes .
change engine oil also,maybe should do this before trying to start it any more. take off cap and rotor and dry off. try watching plug wires . if they spark in the dark when trying to start they are worn out and soaked with water and shorting out to the engine. check fuses also
