Try a new key in it,,,,there is a small chip in the key,,,they can play up, there is also the chip pick up in the lock that can play up,,,
here's a tip,,,if you have two keys,,hold the other key close under the lock before you try to start up,,,the chip reader may read that one first and switch off the alarm so the car will start up

95 Ford Taurus SHO 3.2 stalls randomly


On one of the occasions when it won't start back up, someone will need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to be able to troubleshoot the problem.

Will turn over but wont start. ran out of gas a couple weeks ago and has been hard to start since..


Some times when cars run out of gas and the pump has high miles/usage on them they want to die. Some times. I would replace the fuel filter to start with. Also there is a check valve it the tank if when running out of gas it sucked up some dirt it could be keeping the valve open letting the fuel run back to the tank. To check this turn the ignition on 3 or 4 times. if it starts right up then thats the problem. you can't fix it. hopefully the dirty will pass thru it. I would just live with it untill your pump goes out. It is all one unit anyway. And it's in the tank

Onece in a while turn over wont fire. runs great other wise


your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

New starter on my 2000 Subaru Impreza Outback sport is going out again. I recently bought my impreza. The check engine light came on a few times and 5 days later it would not start, I tapped on the starter...


Sounds like a bad starter. If your car is turbocharged then you might have gotten a starter meant for non-turbo application. Same thing happened to me but I couldnt get the right starter. Heat is the no.1 enemy of cars. Turbos run way hotter than non-turbo. If this is a heat related problem. I would invest in a factory starter from dealership. (worth every penny). Or just simply heat wrap it.
