Sitting for a period induces rust on all wire terminals, corrosion in all electrical joints and flat battery
the carby is probably corroded up in side with a blockage in the main and idle jets
It will require a good service to check all the problem points.

SOURCE: Car would not start or the engine wouldn?t even turn over.

Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.

It sounds like your new crank sensor is defective. It should be under warranty.

I had a piece of cable fall against the starter while it was running and it killed the motor now it will not start. And it shows power to everything


What is year--make--model?
Are you saying the starter motor won't crank the engine or it cranks good but won't start? If it cranks good but won't start, check fuel--spark--compression.

Its a 2008 grand cherokee every so often it will not start if you keep trying it will finely start but gettiny worst (win)


wont crank?
or cranks ok but wont start, why not answer that first.?

which engine? there are 3. or 4.
gas or diesel.
what country.
if gas engine, (wild guess) get it tuned up in last 8 years?
if not why not, even just spark plugs,
no spark plug lasts the life of any engine, so... is serviced,
for 100 years now. same deal.

I cant hear you cranking your engine
nobody hear can, videos work post that if you have never heard the sound of a normal starter running.

1986 pontiac 6000 2.5L. backfired 2 times then quit


I owned an '87 Chev.Celebrity once, from about year 2000 to 2005, thereabouts,. one of my favorite cars. It had the 2.5L, too. A sister car to your 6000. Mine had been a taxi in Great Falls, MT, so it had had a super good maintenance schedule followed fanatically. I'm pretty sure the engine had been replaced not too many years before I bought it with 250,000 miles on the odometer, from a private individual. Was sure a nice car, and the odometer made it past 400,000 miles, with reverse gear gone out the last two years I drove it. (True story: always got 26-27 MPG from the day I bought it. When reverse went out, I started getting 30 MPG- I figured I eased up some friction-lol,) By then the engine was sending signals it was tired and going down too. I thought it wasn't worth repairing considering the cost involved, so off to the crusher!
Backfiring can be a symptom of valve train problems. Especially so, if the engine is getting only the required amount of gas to run good. The 2.5L has a timing gears set-up, no timing belt or chain, so if not noisy, probably good. Check your timing with a timing light. Look at the cone pattern of the fuel spray out the injectors-look down the throat of the throttle body with someone cranking the car over, the gas should be spraying out in a fine mist cone pattern-if it drips or runs, it's getting too much gas. If it looks good, well, how many miles on it? You might want to do a compression test to see about the internal condition.

My 91 GMC Tracker sometimes won't start and other times starts just fine. It also shuts off randomly.


i daily driver, or just took out of a barn for winter duty.?
context? when did it run right last, 1day, 1week or 1 year.ago.?
sounds Canada , nobody ever posts location, and guess what
canada is not texas. 85F today here. and all week.
fuel antifreeze is just methanol. it works,

stalls, are complex.
so are won't start.
the EGR sticks open on most , its a 50k service point and is never done by most owners. and fails like clockwork.
first use test fuel, does test fuel work , when it wont start.?

did you read the spark plug tips to see if its flooding or starving for fuel.
did you do the fall tuneup. make sure spark is good?
really fast starter,, that is odd.
so your saying it always starts eventually but not always
and when it does run, its with full power on hills, etc?
Id do the 60k tune up on it.
see it here.
http://www.fixkick.com/IGN_timing/tune-ups.html



if it wont start, try the op guide rule,crank WOT (unflood mode)
wide open throttle, this cuts all fuel injection and clears all floods.
if not flooded and spark is good (tuneup) and new fuel filter.
then try test fuel. on a good engine and good spark engine.
I remove a intake hose, and spray it in there.
and crank , does it start now, for at least the life of the test fuel>

It is possible that when you had an oilchange the oil used was 10/40 which is correct for this vehicle BUT i would advocate that a thicker oil is used for this mileage say 20/50.
all cars will use/burn oil and i always ask my customers how much oil they put in from the last service so that i can judge what oil to use.Thin oils (5/30)should only be used for new cars,and even then
keep an eye on oil usage/burn.....
We have all read,in various publications that "using the wrong oil can cause damage"but after 40 years in the trade,i have NEVER had a complaint or any engine damaged by this method of filling
at service.(we had forty bays in my last dealership.)
