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 have 1999 Sunfire and it won't start everytime i try starting it all i can hear is a fast knocking noise in the starter i do have a new started in it, any idea's what would cause that ?


Check the battery's state of charge-might be too low. Check battery post connections. Clean and retighten them, and check battery ground, and connection of cable to starter. Sounds like starter is not getting full battery voltage to work.

1998 Oldsmobile Achieva

1998-2001 Pontiac Sunfire
Due to part availability, this recall is being conducted in three phases. Phase 1 will consist of 1998-1999 vehicles, phase 2 will consist of 2000 vehicles; and phase 3 will consist of 2001 vehicles. When sufficient parts are available to notify customers of 2000 and 2001 vehicles, you will be notified and will receive a new initiation report.
Recall - Ignition Circuit DefectCondition
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1998 model year Buick Skylark; 1998-2001 model year Chevrolet Cavalier; 1998 model year Oldsmobile Achieva; 1998 model year Pontiac Grand Am; and 1998-2001 model year Pontiac Sunfire vehicles. If the engine fails to start and the driver holds the key in the "start" position for an extended period, high current flows through the ignition switch, and sometimes produces enough heat to melt internal switch parts. If the switch is damaged, a fire could occur in the steering column, even with the engine off and the key removed. The fire could spread to the interior of the car, which could injure occupants of the car or cause damage to adjoining structures.

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/

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.

Sunfire gt 97 2.4L. car won't start, small


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.
