The car at first would sputter and die if you took off fast from a stop.


If you are cranking fast enough to start but no start , check for fuel pressure, if it doesn't crank at all with jump box , first check the jump box on another battery , if it's good your battery could be so far gone it won't start , hopefully not as a result of bad alternator too

1994 Buick Park Avenue: will not start with out jumping, Replaced the battery, problem remains. Can jump start the car and drive it but when shut down for a few minutes it will not restart using battery...


QUESTION: Without a jump, does the motor crank when you turn the key to "START"?

...

If you can jump start it, then you know you have spark, fuel and compression; you know your starter and ignition are fine.

My guess is a loose/missing connection at the positive battery terminal for your starter.

On my 1998 Toyota Corolla, after it starts and runs fine..you turn the key off and it will not start again without a jump. After a quick jump it starts right away. The battery is only a year old. Is it the...


Check for loose battery terminals. Car will not start without jump because battery is not connected properly. Starter is probably good or car would not start with or without jump. If alternator is bad and not producing current, car would die after running a short while as battery would out of juice and without alternator current the car would die - so probably alternator is good. If connections are all good, get a voltmeter and test the battery voltage - it should be over 12.75 volts. If not, battery is not holding charge.

1999 Jag XK8 will not start. Cannot locate battery or terminals. Can you jump start with cables in order to get serviced without towing ?


The battery is either in your trunk or like the xj8 which is under the back seat, and yes you can jump start it when you locate the battery.
hope this helps
