96 crown Victoria wont start had the problem couple weeks ago guy said the idle control was off now I guess doing it again I cleaned it but still wont turn over


When you say it wont turn over that implies that you can not hear the starter turning the engine over. If you can hear the starter cranking the engine over but the engine will not start try holding the gas pedal to the floor. Be prepared for the engine to start and let off the gas. If the engine stalls when you let off the gas try starting again but feather the gas pedal after it starts. It it stays running with the pedal depressed than I would agree that there is an issue with the IAC and it may need to be replaced.

How to fix a1998 buick century to start fuel filter new and airfilter turning over but not starting gets gas


Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.

87 911 carrera will turn over but wont start.... has no spark from coil, but has 12 volts to coil with key on.


If the car is getting power from the battery(lights turn on; radio turns on) when you turn the key, then it is your starter or gas distributor. To test that, you need to pour a little gas right in the hole where the engine and intake meet. Pour a little gas in that hole. If it starts up, then it is your gas distributor that is the problem not giving gas to the engine. If it doesn't start up with gas in the engine, then it is your starter. Either will be $100-$200 fix at a shop.
