The first thing i would do is try turning over the engine by hand making sure the engine itself is not seized. if it turns over by hand check to make sure your getting 12 volts down at the starter. sometimes starter cable gets corroded causing slow or even no start. if thats good, check to make sure you have a good ground from your batteries to your engine. your starter gets its ground from its case which is mounted to the engine. if the engine isnt grounded you wont have a complete circuit.

I have 98 grand prix ignition is stuck in start had to pull fuel pump fuse but cant shut car off lights are still on


Suggest disconecting the battery. Then you can work on the problem. it is not clear if the issue is the key stuck in the start position in the iginition switch or if the starter motor is stuck (running) after the car starts. If it the starter motor is running... Time for a new starter. If it is the ignition switch, try
pushing the key in and turning back off. Still stuck? Try pulling pn the key and turning off. Either way, if it is the key, yime for a new ignition switch.

2004 Chevy Suburban quit running after oil and filter change. Took it for a test drive and then it quit running. After this happened, I noticed the oil was dripping out. Replaced the oil and filter again...


SOUND LIKE OIL GOT LOW ENOUGH TO LOCK UP THE ENGINE.THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS TRY TURNING ENGINE WITH A LARGE SOCKET 1/2 SOCKET AND 1/2 SOCKET WRENCH.IF MOTOR WONT TURN ENGINE IS LOCK UP FROM LACKING OIL IF ENGINE DOES TURN AFTER USING THE SOCKET THEN.USE A CODE SCANNER TO CHECK WHAT CODE SETTING OFF REDUCE MOTOR POWER.

Changed fuel pump and fuel filter, now x5 2002 won't start


1. use scanner to find out if there's trouble code.

2.. it's not clear if the starter (motor) turns as you try to start the engine, if not, check starter motor including intermittent (maybe) problem with the ignition switch.

3.if starter motor turns everytime you try to start: check the electrical ignition system: coils & spark plugs
