SOURCE: bmw 318 i cranks but wont turn over

Ok , when u turn the key the engine cranks (turn over is the same as cranks), but it won't start. U have to determine if there is spark at the spark plugs, if there is then u have to determine if gas is reaching the spark plugs. This must be fixed 1st before the running hot issue, and I don't believe the catalytic converter has anything to do w/ your problems you have described.
So 1st u must get the car running again. As far as overheating, why did the shop think it was the head gasket? So u have several problems, but unfortunately, not enough information to work with yet. Let me know when u determine if the no start issue is due to no spark, or no gas. Good Luck!

I would check the cam and crank position sensors. If it is not getting info from one of them there will be no spark.

SOURCE: oil leak from the head gasket on my 1993 honda civic

dear friend-i do not think the oil comes from the hear gasket but rather from the distributor,make sure that the oil is not running down onto the head gasket and the shows as a oil leak from the gasket.

Wrong Head Gasket or installed wrong

Other possible problems

Given it is over 20 years old, do you really
want to invest even the time into working on it?

Who did the engine repairs,couldn't be a repair shop
or it would have acted up before you got it back!

2005 dodge neon srt4, chugs but wont start


I would do a compression test. Chances are the head gasket blew and thats how the coolant entered the cylinders, and how the hose blew. You may need a head gasket replacement.

Car overheated and wont start, does crank over, it blew a radiator hose, replaced it, but still wont crank over


Sorry! sounds like this one is too far gone! If it blew the radiator hose off the engine, then the head gaskets or the cylinder head itself has failed. You will quite possibly need a new engine put in your Cavalier.

93 bmw 325i series,water dipping from behind tranmissionrun hot


  • SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED A HEAD JOB. CRACKED HEAD OR NEED A HEAD GASKET. CHECK YOUR ENGINE OIL IF IT HAS WATER IN IT OR IF WATER IS LEAKING OUT OF TAIL MUFFLER ITS A CRACKED HEAD. IF NOT ITS HEAD GASKET. ANOTHER THING WHICH COULD BE IS FIRST MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER PUMP IS NOT LEAKING WATER CUZ IF IT IS THEN IT WILL BE THAT. SOMETIMES RUNNING YOUR VEHICLE WITH A BROKE WATER PUMP HEATS UP ENGINE CAUSING HEADS TO CRACK WHEN FILLING WITH WATER BUT USUALLY THE HEAD GASKET GOES FIRST. HOPE THIS HELPS.
