If no spark, timing belt may have snapped. Hopefully, the pistons didn't bend the valves. Were you driving the car when it stopped running? If it just won't start, my just be the ignition coil.

I drove my 2004 Pontiac Montana mini van in rain and water and now wont start. It cranks but no turn over.Day 2 hasn't started, in past when drove in water went out but started next day.

Hi Cynthia

If it cranks, it is turning over. I think you mean it cranks, but doesn't start.

Buy a can of WD40, the 'WD' is an abbreviation of 'Water Displacement', and was recipe/formula number 40.

Pull each spark plug cap in turn and spray the spark plug neck, and inside the spark plug cap. DON'T pull them all at once in case you lose the order

Then follow the spark plug leads to the distributor, this is a joiner for all your spark plugs and the power from the coil. The cap comes off with 2 clips. Spray inside the cap and the lightly, the bottom part. Pull the leads from the top of the distributor in turn, and spray the cap and the cover to the wire. DON'T pull them all at once in case you lose the order. The centre lead goes to the ignition coil. or coils, spray those too.

Now try and start it. The WD40 treatment should protect the electrics for a few months.

If that doesn't work, you need to check the condition of the spark plugs and if the gap is correct. And if that doesn't work, it is time to call a friendly mechanic.

number one thing to do , are you getting spark , pull a plug wire at the plug side and put the screw driver in the hole in the wire off and hold it to ground have someone crank it over a few seconds and see if you have spark , if you are getting spark then you are not getting fuel you have to ck you fuel pressure should be around 40 lbs , but some cars vary but it is pretty high you can ck online for the right pressure , also ck your air filter believe it or not I seen some cars not start because of a dirty air filter . let me know how you make out

Replaced starter 97 camry turns wont start please help

if it turns over and wont start,could be a few things start with putting some starter fluid in throttle body that will tell you if its not getting gas if it starts. you can pull a spark plug and stick plug on the plug wire and have someone crank it you should see spark iv seen a lot of worn out spark plugs these should be changed every 30000 miles if the plug gap is to big itll never start. and lastly the timming belt could be broke pull back the cover and look at it good luck hope u aint outside

Truck wont start

Check your crank sensor, it bolts to the block on right rear and goes down into the trans bellhousing . You might have got the wire pinched between the trans and the engine.

Can my spark plugs cause my car not to start if i need to change them?

You say the car sounds like it wants to start--does the engine crank when u turn the key? If the engine cranks (engine turns over is the same thing), then it's not the starter. so, if the engine is cranking over, u must check to see if you have spark at the spark plugs. It is possible for the car not to start because of bad spark plugs. How many miles since they were changed? Pull a couple out and inspect them to see if they need to be replaced. 1st thing to do is see if u have spark at plugs, then check to see if gas is getting to the plugs.
