    Sometimes, when the car has been driven for awhile and then shut down it requires quite a bit of cranking, with the engine starting and stopping before it finally runs

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

I need a pictorial diagram for starter replacement on a 1999 pontiac sunfire w/ 2.2 liter engine


Common misdiagnosis on GM vehicles is to think the starter is broken when acually the antitheft system has turned it off. Check for a light on the dash that says SECURITY when the car wont start. If you see it, then this is your problem, not the starter. Here is a link on the subject, and possible solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

When jumped off ,if it drags to start,have the starter checked,and if when jumping the car off,the starter turns the engine over real good,then the cables are most likely the problem,replace them.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire won't even turn over, but the


The radio will work even with a dying or discharged battery.

First, be sure to check all of your fuses in the engine compartment.

A full battery will keep the headlights bright with the engine off. With a dying or discharged battery, the headlights will be noticeably dim.

When you turn the key to crank the engine, does the starter try to turn or make a fast clicking? If so, the battery if low or dying. If it makes a slow click then stops, then it's REALLY dying.

If you don't have a battery charger, go to Walmart and get some jumper cables. Hook up a friend's car to yours. If it starts, then the battery was low, either from a bad battery or a bad alternator.

If it doesn't, you have electrical problems, possibly a bad starter or starter solenoid.

sounds like a starter solenoid went bad which it is easier to replace the whole starter assembly then just the solenoid and you can get one with a LLT Limited Life Time warranty.

Yes i have several solutions since you replace the battery then its not that. Go to a autozone and get the starter tested it is free if it comes up bad it is the starter. If not that then definititly the alternator.
