Lots of reasoons for a no start this answer is as if it was running OK just the other day and was starting OK. The gas tank has gas? Spinning real freely indicates to me that the timing belt broke. The oil cap off the valve cover look in there to see the cam and crank engine you should see it turn. The fuel pump may not be coming on. The fuel filter could be frozen not letting the gas go though. The spark may not be happening as A senser or also a plug wire or other wire off inspection of these things something off can be the only problem

IF IT JUST MAKES A WIZZING SOUND AND NOT THE NORMAL SOUNDS ON TURNING OVER,IT MAYBE THAT THE TIMING BELT HAS SLIPPED.SAME THING HAPPENED TO MY WIFE,S POLO ONE DAY,IT TURNED OVER AS NORMAL THEN STARTED TO MISS FIRE AND NEXT TIME I TRIED TO TURN IT OVER,IT JUST MADE A LOUD SPINNING NOISE.IF THE BELT HAS SLIPPED,IT MAY HAVE DAMAGED YOUR ENGINE BUT IF YOU ARE LUCKY,BELT NEEDS REPLACING,STILL PRICEY AT A GARAGE THOUGH.

89 jeep wrangler 2.5 4 cylinder wont start. It turns over strong but wont catch even with starting fluid it just goes whir, whur, whir, etc. I have spark. thought it might be injector but it seems like it...


Check the ignition timing as it appears that the firing order is wrong. Make sure that the cam shaft is turning as it could be the belt broken

Wont start


You cables going from the solenoid to the starter may be bad, or your starter is just shot. Not to sure without actually being there.

Igniton wont turn cant start car any solutions


Is it just spinning round in the lock? if so push hard on it and keep moving the steering wheel side to side in the same direction os the wheels are faced, if turned outwards. its very common on the bmw's you will need to replace the ignition switch. keep trying though it does take a while but they do catch in the end unless its very very broke. my e36 done this for months before I had to change it.

I need a wiring diagram for an 83 crown victoria starter coil


if you turn the key and the engine spins but doesnt fire try checking the timing for it to make spark at the time you need it to ,if it's out it wont catch and run or check for spark at the spark plug make sure it has spark use a dummy sparkplug in the boot and hold it on a ground and crank engine look for a blueish spark and if you have bare hands holding it you'll get a good jolt (insulated pliers)

1996 f-250 cruise wont work


Take it into Ford. Fast. There was a recall on the cruise control modules failing and catching on fire. Seriously. They'll replace the module for free (or should). Probably worth a try-its better than your truck catching on fire.
