3.Plugged air fliler
4. Fuel pump not delivering enough fuel.
5.Leaking head gasket worn timing belt and
7. Timing belt or Pulleys worn

Car cranks but will not idle


If it starts and runs, but won't idle, could be a vac leak, dirty throttle body, or faulty idle air control valve.

I have a 2004 pontiac sunfire with a few problems. First, when I turn the ignition to start the car all I get is a fast-paced clicking sound from the dash area and the engine doesnt even turn over. This...


as fo the idle, there is a IAC ( idle air control to maintain idle. you may have to remove this and clean the carbon out of it, and the intake as well. as for the clicking there are 3 solutions to fix it. battery if it is ok, the solinoid is bad on starter or the starter itself. but it does sound like a bad starter solinoid, because a bad battery will make the same clicking from solinoid. but make sure battery is ok first. when engine is off voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 or better. when running and alternator is ok, it should read about 14.2 to 14.7 if lower then 14 volts alt. is bad. have a very good day !! hope this helps!

Try setting the idle speed up a little--the racing cam in this engine will not allow idle very well at best. An improvement in the ignition system performance will help starting. This engine wasn't made to poop around in traffic.
