    the whole process of the engine turning over stops

    When you say "cuts off" do you mean the whole process of the engine turning over stops or do you mean the engine revs like it started, but stops quickly?

Then replace the battery first, yes, but if the engine stops turning over the starter may have a problem as well. Start with one thing at a time though so you narrow down what the exact problem is and don't replace more than is necessary. If it was just the starter having a problem often you'd hear a noise from it like a spinning sound or clicking sound but the engine wouldn't move.

Easy way to see if it is the battery, just jump start it!! If the car starts immediately, most likely its the battery. Jump the car, dont turn it off, drive to autozone, have them check battery and alternator (just to be on the safe side). I just had this problem and did what i said. Turns out that it was the battery and now the car starts up like a champ.

Hi Cindy,need to check and see if the belt is turning tightly,they may have not done it,to check,open hood,start engine,leave in park,go to engine,find accelerator cable and rev up gas and see if belts are turning tightly,or have someone rev gas in car and someone watch.Also look around engine to see if they let something out of place,you never know these days,even at dealers.

Cutting out after oil change


As I remember years ago I had a Nissan Pick Up and every time I was changing the oil it was cutting out. What I have done just I was filling the oil filter with oil and on crank start the oil switch was off immediately and the vehicle never cut off. looks like it has something like a protection sensor and act when the engine is without oil even with few seconds.

Checked Cables how?

Looking & Touching isn't doing anything

You have to do a voltage drop test or remove
& clean the ends. I would do both

Remove the starter & have it tested at parts store,
assuming you don't know how to do a voltage or
current test while cranking.
