You need to get that Starter Checked out. It is Either the Starter or the Starter Solinoid Causing your Problem.

SOURCE: Won't crank....seems as if its not getting spark.

sounds like a fuel pump problem. if you have ran out of gas, the fuel pump probably is burned. with the new battery the engine crank?? if your answer is yes, im sure the problem is the fuel pump.

SOURCE: 2001 chevy impala quits near idle when driving,

ive found many of these cars with this problem, first remove vacuum hose form fuel preasure regulator this is located on injector rail, start car and see if gas is leaking from fitting for vac hose , if so replace regulator, the next thing is to make sure the throtle body is clean, use throtlebody cleaner and tooth brush to clean, and last would be the idle air control valve, this valve keeps the idle and adjusts it when needed. hope this helps,

97 mercury mountaineer. won't start


watch your oil pressure when cranking, you have to have some oil pressure to get the fuel system to start. you may have to find the hot wire at the relay and energize it to see if it is indeed the fuel pump going out. if its been sitting and its a 97 the fuel pump just might have went, you can also try hitting the gas tank from the outside in the middle to see if that works too. have a water hose or fire extinguisher around when your working on fuel system and leave one of your battery cable a little loose..

Cranks well but won't start.

Looks like you got spark, and gas in the throttle body made it fire: nice work.
Sounds like your fuel pump is out or the wiring is not turning it on. One way to be sure is to set a spare battery near the tank and hot wire the pump with jumper wires. Or if you have a voltmeter check for voltage at the fuel pump connector while the truck is cranking.. If the pump is working and getting gas to the engine, see if the injectors are pulsing. A good idea to check fuel pressure if the pump is working.

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.

your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

My truck just suddenly started acting like it wasn't getting gas and stuttering, then it died and didn't want to start unless i was holding down the gas and now doesn't want to start at all and its not the...

for sure get under truck with someone else inside with a rubber hammer or a block of wood hit the tank in the center and ask the person to crank the engine if it starts yes fuel pump time this is quite often the problem if it doesnt work start new fuses first then fire at the plugs injectors and so on but almost sure 95% fuel pump as well change fuel filter or you may have bad gas but it ran good before and nobody put sugar in the tank

Engine cranks well, half a tank of gas but won't start! Just cranks seems like gas not entering fuel system.

you may be correct, the first thing is to try starting fluid, spray in throttlebody and see if truck starts for a few seconds, if it does then its a fuel problem, mostly a bad fuelpump, start by doing this to see if it a fuel problem,then you can check all the fuses and check for power at pump,alot of times a bad pump will start by banging on bottom of tank while cranking engine if it starts then a bad pump for sure.

Truck died (just like it was the fuel pump). Pump is good, Have gas all the way to the intake. It is firing. Something is not releasing the gas at the intake. My guess is a sensor or the control module....

all of the above are swell answers but ive had this problem in my 96 sierra 2500, have the presure checked at the intake, i had a fuel pump go, then had it replaced.(by gm) and then used the truck for a couple weeks, then sat the truck for 30 days, went to start the truck.... no start. had pressure checked at dealership. boom bad pump, not enough pressure. the unit was replaced again and im a year into this one never failed again.
