My 1999 bmw z3 will crank but will not start , code A9 & 44 shows up , air pump keeps running when ignition is on & drains the battery out.engine light & EML light comes on.

Not sure on this one.....if it's "drive by wire" that means the accelerator pedal is connected to the intake electronically, and that may be where the A9 code comes from. Saturns are drive by wire and it's a common failure point for them. spark, compression and gas is all you need for the engine to run. you can put a fuel pressure gauge on the rail to determine fuel, assume that the compression is good, and pull a spark plug and ground it while cranking to see if gets a spark...

Can an engin click click if battery bad

  • Yes, it is a classic sign of a dying battery which has enough grunt to pull down the starter solenoid (that click noise) but not enough to crank the engine. If your battery is fairly new, it could be the voltage regulator or the benerator itself at fault.

How to start flooded engine

Have you tried waiting a few minutes and then, without pumping, holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking? That has worked with older cars.

turn on the headlights and try to crank the engine; if the lights dim out while you try to crank, then the starter is ok but the battery is too weak. just turning on the lights does not mean that the battery has enough juice to crank the engine; a starter pulls a lot more than lights. If the headlights do not dim out and it still won't crank, then the starter or a connection to the starter is your problem.

Engine cranks and is getting spark but wont start it kicked back hard enough to break a starter mounting bolt i replaced the crank sensor and starter maount bolt it cranks but still kicks back and will not...

The timing is out . you can check this by getting #1 to TDC, pull the cap off and see where the rotor is pointing. It should be pointing to the # 1 cylinder. Gas engine

Does a broken timing belt causes motor to stop runung

Yes. Here is a couple was to check it. When you crank the engine it won't sound normal. On some cars if you take off the oil cap you can see the cam. Get someone to crank while some else watch the can it should turn. If you can't see the cam the timing belt cover will have to be unbolted enough so you can pull the cover back far enough to see the belt and then get some one to crank the engine.

When ignition switch is turned to start I get a small click but starter does not engage


If the starter or solenoid clicks but nothing else happens when you attempt to start the engine, there may not be enough amps to spin the starter. Or the starter may be bad. A poor battery cable, solenoid or ground connection, or high resistance in the solenoid itself may be the problem. A voltage check at the solenoid will reveal if battery voltage is passing through the ignition switch circuit. If the solenoid or relay is receiving battery voltage but is not closing or passing enough amps from the battery to spin the starter motor, the solenoid ground may be bad or the contacts in the solenoid may be worn, pitted or corroded. If the starter cranks when the solenoid is bypassed, a new solenoid is needed, not a starter.
Most engines need a cranking speed of 200 to 300 rpm to start, so if the starter is weak and can't crank the engine fast enough to build compression, the engine won't start. In some instances, a weak starter may crank the engine fast enough but prevent it from starting because it draws all the power from the battery and does not leave enough for the injectors or ignition system.

If the lights dim and there is little or no cranking when you attempt to start the engine, the starter may be locked up, dragging or suffering from high internal resistance, worn brushes, shorts or opens in the windings or armature. A starter current draw test will tell you if the starter is pulling too many amps.

A good starter will normally draw 60 to 150 amps with no load on it, and up to 200 amps or more while cranking the engine. The no load amp draw depends on the rating of the starter while the cranking amp draw depends on the displacement and compression of the engine. Always refer to the OEM specs for the exact amp values. Some "high torque" GM starters, for example, may have a no load draw of up to 250 amps. Toyota starters on four-cylinder engines typically draw 130 to 150 amps, and up to 175 amps on six-cylinder engines.

Hope this helps,Good luck!!

How can i time a 76 sbc 305 if i cant get the car started and don't have timing light just need to get it started

Find cylinder one
Crank the engine with the plugs out,
feel for the compression stroke
mark the timinig mark on the crank.
Set your distributer with the cap off.
Or you can pull the valve cover and watch the valves for the timming mark.
that should get you close enough to get it started then adjust.

My 2000 monte carlo ss with a 3800 engine tends to start and stall about six times befor running, I pulled 3 codes 0108, 0404, and 1404 from the the computer .

I believe the codes are emmission related. I would have the fuel pump pressure checked. The fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator seems to be the failrue. The restarting of the engine several times is making the system build up enough pressure to start running . I would take to a shop to have the fuel pressure checked.
