Most probable cause is bad battery. The battery might be good enough for lights and radio, but the starter requires 200 to 300 amps to start an engine, lights and radio require only 20 amps.

Starter may be bad. Quick test but not garaunteed to prove anything is to hit the starter body a cple times with a hammer or other object, If starter then turns over replace it. If that doest do anything it may be they starter relay located in the underhood fuse box or the starter solenoid.

07 Buick rainier 4.2 ran great cut it off next day wont start. Full of gas with good gas pressure. New battery fluids full. Turn over slowly. Has timing chain. Good fuses Can time jump with chain?


If the engine rotates slowly/slower than before while cranking, check the other end(s) of each battery cables and see if either/both are loose and/or corroded. Corrosion will look like a white flaky "growth" on the bare wire, nut or stud.

Oldsmobile wont start this morning, replaced battery and now threr is no sound. temp is below freezing. what could be my problem?


Is the starter motor good? Take it off and have it checked. It is always possible you got 2 lemon batteries (though not usually likely). Was the car running fine before? There are 2 rating for the battery: Volts and CCA (cold cranking amps) make sure you have the correct battery for the engine.

P2285 code 6.0 litre ford deisel long cranking before starting after starts runs great but oil pressure gauge drops at idle


bad bearings on crank or worn oil pump. Pressure will be up when cold, but will drop when engine warms up. Check for knock in lower end. If so, bad crank bearings.
