Car cranks but wont start


IF the motor is cranking, is it getting any fuel? When you turn your key on, do you hear the fuel pump kick on? Most cars today are fuel injected, and use an electric fuel pump. With another partner, have them stick their ear on the gas tank as you are turning the car on. You should hear some kind of pump, if not, your fuel pump may be dead.

Car wont start


You need to know if the fuel pump is working.TURN KEY ON,BUT DON,T CRANK engine, Listen for the pump to kick on(should hear it.)IF the check engine light is on,have it scanned. A bad crank or cam sensor could prevent starting.IT could be anything from bad plugs,wires,out of gas, or bad sensors.

My 95 lincoln town car will be fine and then all of a sudden I can't get it to crank. I have changed the fuel pump, the fuel filter, I have sparks because I got shocked. was taught a trick of pushing...


check all your rounds on the body, behind kick panels, and in engine compartment. The relays you hear clicking are the power relay whcih turns your engine computer on. The other relay is the fuel pump relay, which is turned on by the engine computer. start there, report back.

PS. When you press the gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply to clear a flooded engine.

Engine cranks sounds like it wants to start but will not


Sounds like its not getting fuel. I believe the fuel pump is in the gas tank, so turn the key 'on' but don't start the car, and see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on from the back of the car. If it kicks on, you will be able to hear it. If not, that is your problem.

Car cranks then an hour later won't crank


Battery or starter. Sometimes the battery will have enough power to activate fuel pump and dash lights but not enough to turn starter.
