    my sister works at a ski resort and her lancer (02) wont start even though it got a jump the engine is turnin over and the fuel pump is puting out gas some suggusted that it could be a fuse or even the o2 sensor. but it had been running kinda shitty before this, it seemed to of been losing power. it had been very cold the night it died, but she had been workin the same job last year and the car seemed to run just fine so this isnt the first time the car has seen sub zero temps.

The key turn but the car dont start, but when i kick start it it start and i wont have a problem the hole day starting only in the morning


The battery needs to be replaced. After the first start in the morning the battery gets charged and the engine is also "hot" making it easier for the starter motor to turn it over. Therefor less current is drawn from the battery and you get a start every time. In the morning the engine is cold making it difficult to turn. The battery rested the night loosing some charge and is also cold which affects the current it can deliver at that stage. With the cold engine it is not able to turn it fast enough to get it started. A new battery will solve your problem.

My truck wont always start bought a new battery so thats not it auto zone said not getting enough air when it starts


Is the battery turning over the engine properly or is it barely cranking over? The main function of a battery is to provide the power to turn the engine over until the engine starts, then it's only function is to help regulate the voltage in your system along with the alternator. Will the truck start when you hook it up to jumper cables? If the engine is turning over properly and the truck not starting, the battery is not the problem. You then need check out other things. For a gasoline engine to run, it requires three things; fuel to burn, compression in the engine and a spark at the right time to ignite the fuel. You must have all three for it to work.

Cutlass ciera wont start


Does the starter spin the motor at normal cranking speed? If there seems too much friction, try turning the engine over by hand to check if the engine turns freely. Put a socket and wrench on the center crankshaft pulley bolt and turn clockwise. If you cannot turn the crankshaft with a wrench easily, then the starter can't either. Turn the crank all the way around to check for something preventing cranking.
Is the battery still enough power to crank at normal speed? If it's already too low, recharge it, and try again.

1994 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner - won't start with new battery, lights won't come on


Check your battery connections on the battery and the other ends where they go the ground will go to the engine block and the positive to a solenoid make sure all of this is tight and has no corrosion. This is just a loose wiring problem

Fitted new battery to 523i 1999 bmw car did not start ,after 2 days of push starting car started on key now car will nut start


firstly check that your battery has a charge using a voltmeter, it needs to have 12v
if no charge, you will need to charge the battery.
if it has a charge, and the battery terminal connections are good, you will be looking for the the engine to turn(attempt to start)
if it turns and stasts, fine.
if the engine does not turn, you will need to look at the startermotor connections. (power supply to the starter motor via the ignition switch turns the engine)
hope this helps

When should the starter be replaced? When the car is cold, the engine will turn but not start. Battery is new.


Hello,
You may want to try a jump start first. If the vehicle will start with a jump start it is more likely that your new battery doesn't have the MCCA, ( minimum cold cranking amps ), required to start your engine.

When it's cold out the starter needs a lot more amps to turn the engine fast enough to start.

Low CCA is seldom a problem until it's cold outside.

I hope this helps you.

Engine light and battery light


No, and a new battery may not cure the battery light being on. A low or no charge condition will turn the red battery light on, a bad battery will not. A low charge condition could have turn the check engine light on. I would have it checked before I would start replacing parts.
