A Simple Preliminary Car Starting Procedure
If your car won't start, try this procedure:
Check the battery cable connections:Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
Check the battery the simple way, like this:Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check the starter and solenoid:If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.Make a simple test of the alternator:If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

That leaves only 8 or 9 possibilities to why it won't start.

Does it crank over? No, Is the connections to the starter good? Can you manually turn the engine over with a wrench? Is the ground cable at the engine properly connected? Is the ignitions switch working? Starter relay? Main fuses?

Does it crank? YES, Is it getting fuel? Spark? Does it have compression? Has the timing belt broke?

98.3hombre battery went dead after a jump it wont start


double posted, why?
JUMPS OK
AFTER JUMP WORKS AND DRIVING, AND STOP AND KEY OFF
IT WILL NOT CRANK.
did i guess right?
that means ,
check all fuses first. even the alt fuse (large)
1-battery bad? #1 top failure all cars.
2-Charge system bad. (is the charge/ batt warn lamp glowing when running car, bingo.????

3-or phantom drains. (if no crank just after stall then it not this) if drains while sleeping yes.

the tests are easy, a dirt cheap voltmeter
13.3v to 15v running is good charge system.
if 12v and falling not.

if the battery is bad, the charge system can shut down, so, the best practice is to try a know
good battery out of 2nd car, do you have battery to barrow, this is TOP CHOICE< not thinner wallet.

if the good battery fails then the charge system is failing (note I said system and not a part)
or the belt missing or slipping to the alternator.

btw the 4.3L PCM runs the alternator
PCM is engine brain.
btww, same true 2.2l engine.
the regulator is in the PCM.

so is the charge/bat lamp in cluster
on key on, lamp test
the jump start it , it runs
does the charge./batt.lamp go out.
id be all over that lamp, costs nothing to look.

Car wont start timming belt is being cut into strips engine wont start


The belt is worn out and is disintegrating. It has probably jumped time. The reason the engine won't start. Depending on your car, Some engines are no tolerance. Meaning if you keep cranking it and the belt breaks, the pistons can slap the valves, bending or breaking them. Replace the belt.

I tried jump starting a diesel engine with my petrol engine now my petrol engine wont turn over although the battery is good why ?


Some times the extra amperage coming from the alternator the diesel motor will burn out the electrical components of a smaller vehicle. This is why you should never jump start your lawnmowers, motorcycles, or any small engine with a full size vehicle. Check your battery, then alternator, and keep tracing it back until you find the source of the problem.

1997 buick skylark wont start


Does it crank and not start or not even crank. You could have a bad starter. I would test the battery first. When it won't start try to jump start it. If it jump starts it's probably the battery. If it won't jump start it's probably the starter.
