92 mercury topaz won't turn over

Are you saying it cranks good but won't start or the starter motor won't even crank?

If the starter motor won't even crank, have to check starter wi8ring circuits. If it cranks good but won't start, that is a different issue, then you have to check fuel--spark and compression. Go from there.

The motor turning & the motor cranking -- are the same thing

You have a NO Start Condition-- if the motor cranks or turns over

Check for Compression
Check for Fuel Pressure
Check for Spark & Injector Pulse
Check that the Timing Belt is on or not jumped

93 seville v8 engine will not crank

IF the motor is cranking but not starting that is one set of problems. if the motor is not cranking at all try jump starting it. If you get a spark when you connect the cables and they are on correctly then you have a grounded wire that shouldn't be. If it cranks and starts when jumped you have a bad battery, replace it and your problem is solved. If your motor is cranking but not starting let us know so we can look at the causes for that.

No crank

shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off.
try with key turned to ignition position.
suspect starter solenoid on starter motor.
suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown.
suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.

Starts at times but not at others. maybe a theft deterent problem?I it started like 8 times consecutively and now all electrical works but no crank or anything.

Try this keep your headlights on and crank starter. Do lights go out?Dash too? If your battery is fully charged it is most likely your srarter motor ,if clicking then selonoid. A starter is a motor with brushes that wear out just like any motor.Try to see if a jump start cranks the motor,if so then your battery doesn't have enough cranking amps to start.Also clean battery posts cables make sure all are tight including grounds.Good luck.

240 crank problem

Starter motor or solenoid is going bad or cables are corroded. Clean all cables if car does not crank have someone try to crank it while you "smack" the started motor housing with a hammer or a long solid rod (hitting the rod with the hammer as it rests on starter motor case). Hit it sharply a few times. If it starts, then the starter motor is bad.
