Turns over but wont start or doesn't turn over? If does not turn over check solenoid then starter,if turns over, have someone turn it over while you bang on bottom of fuel tank, if it starts your in for a pump if not you will need to start electrical diagnostics. Also does it have spark

I have a half a tank of gas in my car but for sum reason it wont start it cranks like it want to start but it dont after doing it for so long the battery drains out but all my lights and horn still works...


Make sure you are getting fuel to the engine. Your fuel pump (usually in the gas tank) may be bad. If it is getting fuel, then likely it has an ignition problem (no spark).

The car will not start. I have replaced the fuel pump relay and the fuel pump, but it still will not start


Alright, when you attempt to start you car, is the engine slowly trying to turn over, if so, your battery low, and maybe needs charging and replacement and if it is a new or fully charged battery, and your fuel pump is pumping and you do get pressure at the fuel filter ( located at the engine bay/firewall area) then your ignition coil is bad. Replacing the ignition coil (which is located inside the distruburator) or the whole distruburator unitt (if cheap) will work. Had this promblem on a 90 accord.

Left cad nortstr running overnight,out of gas n dead bttry.wont start,no fuel in rail.bad fuel pump? how much?


Put at least 5 gallon of fuel in the tank. Charge the battery full with a battery charger. Turn on the ignition without starting the engine. See if you hear the pump run for a few seconds and then shut off. You may have to listen carefully in the truck to hear it. If you hear the pump it is more than likely ok. Do this about 5 times to prime the pump. Purchase a can of starter fluid and follow the directions on the can to start the engine. You may have to do this time and time again until you get fuel to the fuel rail. I would then replace the fuel filter.

96 z 28 wont start


The Alt is okay but the battery won't keep a charge? Replace the battery. At least take it to an auto parts store, and have them do a load test.

Your fuel pump is electric. When you turn the key on it pumps up. After it has developed the needed pressure, it no longer pumps, hence you won't hear it working anymore.

Diagnose your problem going through the various systems. Right now you have a problem with the starting system. It sounds like, from your explanation, that the battery is bad.
If your battery checks out, and then you have the alternator checked out, you have an electrical drain. This may be tough to find.

After you replace your battery, wait 10 minutes, then try to start your Camaro. If it doesn't start, (Key to the Off position), take the Positive battery cable loose. Wait 2 minutes, then reconnect it. You are resetting the computer.

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting


if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.
