Question about 2004 Acura TSX

1 Answer

I was listening a cd when waiting to pick someone up and when i came to start the car it the engine turned over and the sort of bussed but would not start - i waited a couple of hours and then the car started - i had the battery checked and they said it was ok. About 2 weeks later i had drove my car to and was sitting in the car and when i came to start the car it would not start -then engine would not even turn over. I left it for a couple of hours and it still would not turn over and it looked like the lights were dimming so i haed the battery boosted and it started. I am not sure where to go from here.

Charge the battery, then put a volt meter on battery before you start it and note the voltage, then start the car and check the voltage while its running..if its less then 13-13.5 then its not charging...if it seems to be charging, take it to your local parts store and have them load test the battery after its been fully charged

My 2011 Santa Fe won't start I turn the key it cranks once and stops but is followed by what sounds to be a fan of some sort for as long as I have the key turned

Sounds like maybe a starter problem , bendix or I way overrunning clutch. Have someone crank over the engine an you listen under the hood for the starter . I think your hearing the starter motor running but it's not engaging the flywheel , at lest a possibility ! good luck an hope this helps !

I ran my car out of gas and put gas in it now it wont start

How much gas did you put in it? It is very possible that when you ran it out, that your fuel filter became clogged with the sediment from the bottom of the tank. Make sure there is atleast 5gal. of fuel in the tank. Turn the the ignition all the way forward and wait 3 seconds, but dont turn the engine over. Do this 5 or 6 times to get the fuel pump priming. Then try starting the car without pumping the gas pedal. If the car still wont start, check that the fuel system has pressure. Maybe something failed in the fuel pump when it went dry. You can have someone listen near or at the fuel tank to see if they can hear the fuel pump kicking on and off while someone turns the key on and off. Hope this helps.

Car turns over but will not start

First things first we need to check a few things. Do the spark plugs have spark when trying to start car and is the engine getting fuel also should listen back by the gas tank while someone turns the key but does not crank the engine you are listening for the hum of the fuel pump check these things and get back to me and we can go from there. Good luck.

My 1997 Honda accord won't start but will crank

This could be the fuel pump relay or the fuel pump. Listen to see if you can here the fuel pump when you first turn the key on. Might be easier to here if someone turns the key on and off while you listen with trunk open. If you are getting fuel to engine then I would check the distributor control module next. I hope this may help.

This could be your water pump. The faster your engine turns, the worse the noise gets. Check the water pump for leeks. Turn the engine by hand (put a spanner on the crackshaft holding nut and turn) and listen for the noise. This will point the faulty componant. As for the square, if it is on any metal part it may need a welding repair. Without seeing the hole, I can be no clearer in my advice on the hole.

I have a 1993 Ford Probe GT. As I was driving, the engine suddenly died without warning. It wouldn't start again. After waiting a few minutes, it did start. Now I have only been able to get it started...

Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?
