Cannot diagnose or run temp. Sealer for what i believe is head blown because car wont start it cranks but sputters and kills battery?


Sounds like head gasket again, but may be more serious this time. Overheating is not something to take lightly.

Pull plugs. crank. Water come out of cylinders? Head gasket. Possible cracked block or head this time, too. I'd be looking at a replacement engine.

Wont crank landrover discovery


Do the lights go dim when cranking? Obviously check the battery first, It may have 12+ volts but insufficient cranking power.If the battery is OK, get under the vehicle and thump the starter solenoid (the cylinder attached to the starter) with a hammer to loosen any internal rust. If this fails, you probably need a new starter motor

My escort overheated so added water then i tried to start the car but it wont start, its cranks but it wont start


need add add antifreeze half antifreeze and water to raise coolant boiling point. replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.wait until engine cool then try starting it up.depends on how long you drove car when engine over heated.if you turn off engine soon as it over heated no harm done.if you kept on driving and engine die of lack of cooling, and car wont crank you could have blown head gasket warped or cracked cylinder head.

Car overheated and wont start, does crank over, it blew a radiator hose, replaced it, but still wont crank over


Sorry! sounds like this one is too far gone! If it blew the radiator hose off the engine, then the head gaskets or the cylinder head itself has failed. You will quite possibly need a new engine put in your Cavalier.

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good


If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.
