that is correct
you cant keep cranking and cranking
5 cranks and stop cool down

trade it in or fix the problem

if not a fuel pump or spark problem
possible loss of compression in the motor

Starting problem

I think what you mean is that the starter motor is operating normally and rotating the engine but the engine will not fire up.

There are numerous problems which could be causing an engine no start condition and it is impossible to say what the cause is in your case without physically checking the car and running a diagnosis to see what fault codes it is throwing.

Stater spins but engine doesn' t turn over

Bummer. This is typically one of two things: starter drive, or teeth missing on the flywheel.
Of course, something can be cracked or loose, but surgery is the next step.

Engine wont turn over on my gv 2006

The 1st thing i need to do is clarify what you mean by "won't trun over" do you mean the starter motor spins the engine and it will not fire up or that the starter doesn't trun the engine over? If the starter doesn't turn the engine over do you hear a clicking coming from the starter solenoid when this happens? If so replace the starter solenoid the heavy electrical contacts are burned.

My toyota camry 1994 the CAa said that need to check the alternator because one when i start my car it wont start and they said my batterry charging is not good? is it true?

You do not state whether the starter actually cranks the engine or not. If it does so strongly, but the engine won't fire, then this stuff below doesn't apply.

There are several other things which may be the cause. Alternators are usually quite reliable, so check the alternator drive belt first to see it is not loose or broken. Is your charging warning light on the dash lit up? That should come on if the alternator is not charging.

The failure to start could also be either an old battery that will no longer hold a charge, or, the battery is OK but yes, the alternator is not charging it properly, or, the starter motor has a fault, or, in an auto, the start switch on the transmission has failed.

There is a test, but it needs the engine to be running. If you can get it started somehow, turn the headlights on high beam, have someone watch them, and rev the engine moderately.

If the headlights look dim at idle, and flare up brightly when the engine is revved, the battery is weak and the alternator is OK.

If they are dim all the time, it is probably the alternator at fault, or, the alternator drive belt is loose or broken.

If the lights are bright all the time when doing this test, it is probably the starter motor solenoid contacts. These do wear out in a Camry, and can fail only sometimes when worn down.

Having problems with the engine in the 97 jimmy. sometimes it will not even try to turn over and sometimes it fires right up.and when i say it want turn over i mean it want even send fire to the starter. i...

If you don't even get a click or an attempt to start, then you probably have a faulty ignition switch. The contacts get worn and creates an intermittent no start condition. Hope this helps.

I am currently having problems starting my car. Hi have a 2002 Kia Carens. The problem is intermittant. It isn't limited to a cold engine either. All I seem to get is the Starter motor turning over but the...

Any time people tell me intermittant no starts, and shutdowns. The first thing I go for is the fuel filter. they clog up, you still get fuel pressure, but not flow. If you haven't replaced this in a while, do so. Fuel filters are the most neglected part of the system and one of the most important.

Unlikely! Crankshafts dont generally 'go'. Most likely is the starter solonoid is not firing and engaging the starter into the flywheel. Take the starter off and try operating it alone. Equally check that the cam belt hasnt snapped/shredded.
