I have a 01 Blazer that had the same issue. It might be your lock cylinder which is where you put the key in to start your vehicle. Try to turn it only to where it sends power to the starter dont turn it all the way and see if it starts if it does then it is most likely your lock cylinder.

SOURCE: Chevy monte carlo won't start????

sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.

the test port for fuel press is under the hood on the top of the engine near the injectors in the fuel supply line that goes to each injector, it looks like a metal tire valve, u will need to borrow or buy a test guage to access it, about $20 from Kragen or Autozaone, they may loan u a guage, not sure.

SOURCE: water in gas tank

I would get some fresh gas, about 2 gallons in the tank, a couple cans of dry gas, to soak up the water, and get that thing fired up and drive it till it is empty. Then put in some fresh gas, and another can of dry gas, by then , you should have a nice clean engine and a clean tank. If you have to pull the air horn off and squirt some fuel into the throttle, do it, just to get it going. Once it starts, don't let it quit if you can help it, keep revving it and drive it. It will sput and cough bu it should be ok. The fuel pump should be fine and the filter will clean itself out of the water. Hope this helps.

My 2000 saturn has been sitting for almost 2 years since it last fired up and oil is fine has gas, jumped with another car, but wont fire what could the problem be?


First off check your tank for stale gas Also the lines could be gummed up along with your injectors try replacing the old gas with fresh gas check if your fuel pump is working replace your fuel filter and try restarting it again I might take a bit of turning over but it should start

SINGLE MOM CAR WONT START!!!I DON"T HAVE TIME 4 THIS!!!!


so you turn the key and the starter does nothing... i would suggest that you attempt to start it while someone hits the starter with a hammer... not that gently but don't break the starter either.

If it suddenly turns over you need a new starter. and right away because using a hammer only works a few times.

99 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD turns over, wont fire


I had a similar problem and believe it or not it was the CAT. An easy way to test for this is to remove the O2 sensor right in front of the CAT. Once you removed it, plug it back in while unscrewed from the exhaust pipe and start up the truck. If it runs fine, the CAT is your problem. This is just a guess and it would be an easy and very cheap($0) test. You did not say if the truck was diesel or gas. Mine is gas that was exhibiting the same problem as yours...good luck!
