Sometimes won't turn over???

Sometimes (more and more) when I turn the key it sounds like it is going to start but does not turn over? Last time no luck at all. Any ideas?

    I have a '99 hyundai accent that for the last 2 months or so it will turn over but sometimes it won't start. I doesn't make any kind of clunking noise, so I don't think it's the starter. I've had one mechanic tell me that it might be the fuel pump. Do I need to pull the gas tank to get to it?

We have had the same problem. Ours would sound like it would start but the engine sounded starved. We were told that the pump was working but that the pressure regulator needed to be changed we did that and the car still does not work. The battery is fine, brand new, and the engine doesn't clunk. I am finding that many accents are having this problem. My advice is not to take it in unless the problem will happen while it is at the shop. We have brought ours in and it will start for the shop and they will tell us there is not problem.

Does the engine just give a clunk when you turn the key or make no sound at all?
If it gives a clunk, most probably the contacts in the starter motor are burnt or you may have a bad connection on one or more of your heavy duty cables may have a loose or corroded connection.

Sounds like the alternator is going out the slow way.
Youre kinda lucky because almoat all alternators go out without warning.
Most Autozone shops or places like it will run a test for free.
Good luck,Gary

F150 ignition (won't Start)


If it turns over but just won't fire and the timing sounds fine when it does run you might consider your ignition switch.  Does it sound like it wants to fire but only just when you let go of the key?

Depends on the sound that it makes when you turn the key over.

Clicking noise...usually the starter

If it sounds like its going to start, but doesnt, most likely the battery.

If you have replaced the battery recently, then its the alternator.

Sometimes there can be oil build up over the spark plugs so it doesnt get the spark to start.

Hope you get it fixed!!
