Engine died while driving on the freeway, now only cranks but wont turn over/


As with any no start problem, have you checked for spark at the plugs and normal fuel pressure at the injectors ?
Does it crank with normal compression ?

I was driving my 2001 Echo and it just died completely. Towed it home and when I turned ignition switch on the Eli fuse clicks and then a buzzing noise comes from the engine like a stuck sensor?


Check battery for at least 12 volts if you have less or a grate deal less it may be a chargeing problem. Charge battery if you have low volts. See if it will start if it dus check to see how much power your battery is getting from the charging system or if the car is just running off the battery and draining it down. Had you notest anything funny about the way your car was acting before it died even days before? Just start checking simple first then hardest last and checking the battery and charging system for voltage is the most simple in my opinion. Good luck

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die randomly


I was on vacation in S.C. and engine would die every 20 mins. or so, I took it too dealer and they could find nothing wrong except a bad plug wire periodically wouldn't fire. I said replace it and 3 years later problem is still fixed. Must have caused a glitch with computer.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


You need to run an engine control module scan for fault codes Known as an OBD2 fault code test.. Autozone and others do this for free. If no fault show then hook up a test fuel gage the next time it stalls and see if maybe the fuel pump is failing.

Starter clicks but wont roll the engine over


Most likely your battery is dead, the clicking usually indicates that. The battery may have the required voltage however, it may not have enough amps. Try giving it a jump start.

My Samurai wont start . It is getting gas to the carb and spark to the plugs. Was driving down the road and just died. Getting power everywhere. Starter turns but the motor just wont fire up.


I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.

Chevy blazer won't start


Well odds are that your blazer is fixed by now. Either way sounds like a bad battery, that's why you need jumps all the time. Why it would die, there are too many possibilties off hand. So what was wrong with it?
