Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Montero

1 Answer

Car won't start. I hear a clicking sound when I turn the key to start. Electricity is on signals work there's enough gas. Basically: drove it about two blocks turned car off. Went to start it again and it was a slow draffy start sound but engine did not fully turn over. After that would not start. Could it be atarter altenator or anti-lock alarm system?

My lumina won't start it will start from the


Sudden no starts are usually gas or ignition related. That's why the mantra check for spark and check for gas. If you check for spark at a spark plug and have a blue snapping spark, the ignition is probably good. To check for gas, best to check fuel pressure, as high fuel pressure against the injectors ensures that proper amount of gas will be sprayed out by the injectors. Do you hear the fuel pump buzz on for a couple of seconds when the key is turned to on? If not, try banging on the bottom of the gas tank to see if pump will work. If it does, you will need to replace the pump-may work a couple more times by tapping on the tank, but the pump is basically gone.
If gas and spark is present, one would next need to check the injector circuit.
If spark is absent or weak, it could be the crank position sensor, ignition control module (under the coil pack), cam position sensor, or the pcm.

Why cavalier 2000 almost starts but won't what is the problem, battery and starter ruled out


That should be enough gas. Maybe the fuel pump is not working. Turn the key to on- you should hear the buzz or whine of the pump iin the gas tank for about 2 seconds. It should turn on briefly to pressurize the fuel line and then shut off until the car is cranked over. If you don't hear anything from the rear when turning the key to on, the pump may have quit working or power is not getting to it. Occasionally, a pump will still work but not well enough to make sufficient pressure for the fuel injectors to work. To check that, the pressure would have to be tested.
So, listen for the pump. If good, check your ignition by checking for spark at a sparkplug. If no spark, the ignition system will have to be checked and tests run to find the problem. If you have spark and still no go, test the fuel pressure. If pressure is low, replace the fuel filter and re-test.

I drove my car worked find and when i went to start again it would start but turn over?


So the engine does crank over? If so, turn key to on and listen for the fuel pump to buzz on for a couple of seconds. If the pump is working, you should hear it come on when key is ON. You may need to stand by the tank when someone turns key to on. It will only come on for a couple of seconds to prime the fuel system, then shut off if the car is not cranked. If you don't hear that familiar buzz from the rear, then suspect a failed pump, but the wiring to it will need to be checked before condemning the pump.
If you do hear the pump coming on, then the fuel system is at least getting gas to the engine, suspect an ignition problem. Begin ignition diagnosis by checking for spark at a plug wire.
Good luck.

I have a 96 pontiac grand am that doesnt start all the time


Starting Problem # 1: Engine Won't Crank At All

Scenario: You turn the key, but nothing happens: And by nothing, we mean there is no dash light, no sound, nada. The first thing you should do in this case is to pop the hood and check the battery. Either the battery is completely dead or there's a wiring problem in the starting system. Try jump-starting the battery. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to call for assistance.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a rapid clicking sound, and the dash lights dim. This is your classic low-battery symptom. Jump-starting the battery should get the engine to start.However, if you keep experiencing this problem, you could have a bad battery or alternator, or it could be some­thing as simple as a loose alternator belt. Take your car to a mechanic just as soon as you can.

Scenario: When you turn the key, the lights on the dash come on, but you don't hear anything. Make sure you have the shift selector all the way in park. Move it out of park and then back, or try starting it with the shifter in neutral. If your car has a manual transmission, make sure you have the clutch pressed all the way to the floor. If that doesn't help, you can try jump-starting the battery, but it probably won't work. There's a good chance your car has a bad starter or a problem in the starting circuit. That could mean a prob­lem in the ignition switch, neutral safety switch or starter sole­noid.

Scenario: The dash lights come on when you turn the key, and then go right out, and the engine doesn't crank when you turn the key to start, But, the lights slowly come back on when you release the key. This is another classic: the bad battery connection. When you turn the key to start, the starter pulls so much current that it breaks the connection. Then, when you release the key, the connection slowly comes back. The connection provides enough power to turn the dash lights on, but not enough to crank the starter. Cleaning and tightening the battery terminals may fix this prob­lem.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a single, hard clunk. Turn the headlights on and try again. Do the lights dim slightly when you turn the key? If so, you probably have a bad starter or a seized engine. If the headlights don't dim at all, or just barely dim, there may be a connection problem between the starter solenoid and the starter itself.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a loud, scraping or grinding sound like metal on metal. The starter drive is bad, or the ring gear on the flywheel damaged, or both. You may get the starter to engage if you try turning the key a couple of times, but let go of the key right away if you hear the noise again. If the car does start, you should drive it right over to local repair shop and have the problem fixed.

Starting Problem #2: Engine Cranks but It Won't Start

Scenario: The engine seems to crank normally, but the engine doesn't even sound as if it's trying to start. Is there gas in the tank? Gas gauges are notoriously inaccurate. If you have to move your head to one side to get the needle to move off empty, try adding some gas to the tank.

Scenario: When you first turn the key on, you don't hear the fuel pump run. In cars with electronic fuel injection, you should hear a light hum a few seconds from around the fuel tank. That's the electric fuel pump running. If you don't hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds when you first turn the key on, try cranking the engine until the oil light goes out. That may start the pump running and allow the engine to start.

Scenario: The engine cranks normally, and it sounds like it wants to start, but it won't. You may have flooded the engine. Hold the gas floor and try again. (Let the gas pedal up when it finally starts). If it's raining out, the ignition system may be wet.

Scenario: The engine cranks unevenly in a repetitive-sounding pattern. You may have a bad timing chain or timing belt. Call a tow truck and have it towed to the repair shop.


Starting Problem # 3: Engine Starts but It Shuts Off

Scenario: The engine starts right up, but shuts off as soon as you release the key. This is the classic symptom of a bad ignition switch. A new switch should fix it.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but when you put the transmission in gear, the car lurches and the engine shuts off. The converter clutch in the transmission torque converter probably is engaging when it shouldn't. On some cars, you can bypass this by disconnecting the torque converter clutch solenoid; but unless you know which wire to pull, forget about it. Call for assistance.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but seems to idle slowly and stalls when you come to a stop. This probably is a fast idle problem. When the engine is cold, it's supposed to idle a little faster than normal to keep the engine running. You may be able to drive using two feet until the engine warms up: one on the gas to hold the idle up a little and the other for the brake. However, don't keep driving it this way. Take your car to your repair shop just as soon as you

Strange starting issues or lack there of.


You nailed the problem in the second sentence. Likely the belt tensioner is failing, causing the belt to become loose and slip. That in turn allowed your alternator to slip instead of charging your battery. While you drove, you were running on battery only. There is enough power in there to drive for sometimes over an hour. When you went to re-start, there was insufficient power to operate starter (which needs more juice to turn than anything else in the car) This lowered battery voltage further, tripping the security system. You will need a new serpentine belt, idler pulley and battery charge, then re-activate security system. Never worry about giving too many details...far better than some posts I read that would have said something like "my car. click why" And fifteen questions later I sometimes get close to the answers you provided...nice to see someone out there that's literate!!!
good luck with it!

Chevy monte carlo won't start????


sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.
