I would say its one of two things,first the non-return valve need replaced[fuel],or the heat shield at the back of the engine is slipped/broken letting the fuel evoperate from the intake.adrian,,,,,,

Was running car with heater on car got hot heater went off seconds later car died engine was hot now won't start weak turn over.

Remove the serpentine belt. Put a socket on the crank bolt. It should be fairly easy to turn. If not, crank bearings are shot. If so, try to start the car. If it starts, first look at the A/C compressor. Then the other pulleys and parts. One has locked up.

Why won't my engine turn over

lots of reasons, but you forgot to say what car it is?
ill guess car. its an Automatic. transmission car. 90% chance.
1: does it crank with jumper cables, (to a running donor car or tow truck?)
yes /no.
yes, then the battery is DISCHARGED or dead or bad.
no? then the starting system is faulty.

No, wont crank with good battery charged.
  1. Battery terminals corroded, at any of the 4 ends.
  2. hot wire the starter solenoid, cranks now keys in pocket.?
yes, then starter is good.
no , then starter is bad. or engine seized, hand turn engine. no not seized.
yes starter now works hot wired. bingo, for bad KEY line.
does wiggling the shifter, start car.
does cranking, with shifter crank car in NEUTRAL?
yes, then the PRNLD switch is bad.
No, then the key switch is bad or some alarm is blocking this path.

cant wax smarter, NO CAR STATED !@!!!

Ignition switch

engine will not crank.
if it dont crank it can not start. nor sustain and run.
the first steps are:
1; check all fuses.
2: jump cable start engine, s
starts now, then the battery is weak ,dead or JUST discharged.

the battery must read 12.6vdc rested or its weak.

if jumper fails to start car.
we then hot wire the starter solenoid.
no crank now, the starter is bad
yes, cranks now, the key line is dead
see the 83 tricks here, for making it start.

same for hot wire trick, (test)

1999 honda odyssey won't turn over turn key nothing but lights work

the first test. is jumper cable cranks.
the lights only use 1/50th the current of a starter, and dont prove anything. (eg. bad batteries do run lights great, can prove.)

juimp start it,
good, yes. bad battery; battery dischanged,or bad charging system
or left on the lights. too long.
bad jump, this means the cranking system is bad.
bad crank.
1: cables from battery to starter, corroded.
2: bad cables. split open and green copper everywhere.
3: I hot wire the stater solenoid, if fails (good battery and cables )
then it is a bad starter, (i hit it with a hammer, and bam it cranks
great tick to get of of big time trouble , far off grid or? danger zones...

4: hot wire fails.
bad KEY line.
if key oine fails wiggle the A/T shift handle, cranks now?
try neutral cranking, (fresher contacts here, magic happens)

IF a stick shift car nows the time.....

ask how to hot wire or look here.
see test 1 here "hot wiring techniques"

I have M/T and park on hills and start by rolling starts.
i dont need a good battery, in my 1968 xxxxx (1/2 joking)

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay

wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

My '95 volvo 960 got hot, and battery died. Tried to jump start in and it would crank but not start.

Dead Battery

Always try & charge,it is unsafe to jump
a dead battery, as it may have shorted cells

If the engine rotates,turns over,cranks,it is the same thing

To say it won't crank or won't turn over is wrong
That is a no start

1---Engine does turn over,rotates,or cranks

2----Engine is a no start or won't start or won't fire, no iginition

1) see the diagram
2) use the scanner and computer test, this will guide a exactly problem
3) reset the igntion timing, it doesnot matter if your system ha BCM, adjust to accoridng the specification manaufacturer, because the BCM runt according to the information recorderd. remember the BCM =CPU.
4) test the sensor cam/crank with VOM see the diagram.
5) the head gasket i blown, valve timing is incorrectly set. the exhaust system is blocked.

Car wont crank when its hot

most times the problem can be solved by replacing ignition coil and worst case the main computer... the distributor has the internal parts that usually go bad and you have to replace the complete unit
