I think that if the engine cut off right away when the belt broke that it should still be ok ,just have to make sure it is put back aligning all the timing marks

you might have a starter gone bad. When you try and crank does the engine spin over or is there just like one solid loud clicking noise? or is the engine spinning over when you try and crank but it just want start up and run?

My 1999 the engine keeps just shut off while driving down the road the engine keeps turning but wont crank I put some engine starter in the carb.and it tried to start.could it be the fuel pump


if it was the fuel pump engine should start with starter spray at least for a second or two, so, it sounds like your fuel pump is bad.
turn ignition to run and try hearing the pump run.

1996 audi a4 wont start


What happens when you try to start it? Does the engine turn over or is it completely dead? If you don't hear the engine turn over I would check to see if your battery is charged. If it isn't it's likely alternator went out. Report back if it's turning over (meaning the battery and alternator is good)

95 Buick Riviera Died on the highway. 95 buick riviera was making a clanking sound, then I felt a big **** and everything shut off now car won't start, or do anything. what does this problem sound


Your flywheel may have broke or the crank could have broke. If the crank broke the engine is done. Try to turn the engine over by hand. You can put a socket on the crank pully bolt and try to turn it.make sure the key is off and out of the ignition. Sorry for your loss.

I have a 95 gmc sonoma with a 98 engine in it i was driving down the road and pulled over when all of a sudden my truck shut off on me and wont start back up seems like its something to do with the gas if...


If its trying to start it could be the fuel pump. Try some start fluid.You should hear the fuel pump cut on when you turn on the ignition for about 2 seconds. If you have fuel check to make sure you have fire. Take a plug wire off and put a screwdriver in it and hold against something metal while turning the engine over. You may need help to do this.If you have fire then its timing. Could be the cashaft position sensor.
