I don't know what you mean by "wants to start"?
If it "turns over", then normally the starter and battery are successful in cranking the engine, but then it would just not be firing?

However, large coolant loss with no obvious external leak, often means head gasket. This can also lead to water in the cylinders, making cranking impossible.
I suggest you pull the spark plugs and see if any are wet with water.

My car runs fine for days then i'll park somewhere and go to turn it back on and it won't start at all. It won't turn over or anything.


CHECK BATTERY CONNECTIONS, STARTER CONNECTIONS, WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN IT DOESN'T START, TO GET IT GOING AGAIN, DO YOU GET A JUMP START IF SO CHECK CONNECTIONS.

Lights are on but car won't start there is a loud ticking sound but the car won't turn over


replace your battery. seriously i know it sounds simple but sometimes, thats all it is. just a simple fix. trust me i've built hotrods and spilt blood sweat and tears just to lay under the damned thing in the middle of the night and have a brain storm. and to realize that i just needed to stop and think simple, would have saved me days of aggravation, and tears! just try it. cadillacs are especially touchy. so always start simple.

1995 geo tracker won't start. I've replaced everything except the ignition switch. It used to click when i turn the key, now it won't even click.


DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.

ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!

HOPE THIS HELPS!
