I would first take the car to Aurozone and have the charging system hooked up to their computer to run a test to see if its charging properly. Then have then run a load test on the battery to see if its still cranking out the amps it should. If that doesnt work then I would take the starter off and have them run a test on it to see if it is working properly. Its possible that the starter is so worn out that it is requiring more power to engage properly. All these are free tests that they do for the customer so that should help you diagnose the problem.

Will crank but wont start


When an engine overheats, they should be shut off immediatly when any warning lights come on, or the temp. gauge reads extremly high. At this point, under extreme heat, your valves will heat up, get soft and bend. Your pistons will melt holes through them and your rings will break. Depending on how long the engine was ran in an overheated condition, your might have an engine with NO OR LOW COMPRESSION.

My panther 110c wont turn over.


So, do you mean no starter engagement? If so look for connection issues, actually inspect for looseness, and corrosion. Look for GROUND issues, sometimes you have to run grounding wires between items and the battery.

If you mean that the engine does not FIRE, but the starter is turning the engine over....look for ignition based heat damage. Temps affect these items.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Is there a thermostat shut off switch . car runs


The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too

Car wont even turn over batt is good 12.45v


The Water light? you may have over heated the car, also you may have caused a crack in the engine block by driving the car after the Temp light came on, Check the Thermostat, This may have caused the Light to come on and can cause some major problems if not replaced. Good luck!

2000 volvo s80 ran out of gas put gas in but it wont start


Turn the key to full power (but do not crank the engine). You may hear a high pitched whine from behind you - that's the fuel pump running. Leave the key on for about five seconds, then turn it off for a minute. Turn the key on again for another five seconds, and off for a minute. Then turn the key on for five seconds, and then crank the engine.

If your car ran out of gas, you need to run the fuel pump this way to get fuel up to the engine again - all the lines from the tank to the engine are empty, so the pump needs to run to fill them.

If this doesn't work, it's possible that the fuel pump is vapor-locked and will have to be replaced. Some cars are more susceptible than others to this type of failure.

99 gmc wont start


check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps
