    My jeep turns over but won't start. Everything else works except the dash gauges. It is a 2000, all the power accessories work. the fuel pump does not kick on, nor do the dash gauges.

I had a similar problem with my 96. i found it to be the engine crank position sensor. it is located on the transmission housing(drivers side). when it fails it doesnt send signal to the electronic coil.

05 ford ranger started knocking and shut off now won't crank. What is wrong?


Started knocking and shut off ? Now will not start?
That sounds bad - check fluids - engine oil and coolant - those three symptoms can indicate overheating (either by lack of coolant or engine oil).
Did either fluid get low AND does the engine oil look contaminated - milky colored and way overful.
Not Start? Does it turn the engine and just not fire up running?
Or does the engine not turn over at all?
If the engine is siezed - you can tell by the electrical power needed to crank the engine - turn on the lights and try to crank the engine - if all you hear from the starter is a click and all the lights dim - that means a lot of power is needed like:
1. the battery doesn't have enough power - jump start to verify
2. or it requires more power to turn the engine than the battery can provide - engine siezed - try turning the engine by hand with socket/wrench to verify.
I hope your engine is not siezed - if so - hope you still have warranty coverage on the powertrain.
Please let me know what you find and if this helps?

My 2001 ford mustang v6 engine will not start due to not being turned on or driven in over a month. How can this be fixed?


Is the engine turning over? Are the dash lights coming on when key is turn on? If engine is turning over and lights are coming on the battery is good. If not the battery is dead. So once engine is turning over and car not starting try pouring just a little fuel inside the fuel bowl and try starting the car. Or get some starting fuel.

Engine turns over but will not start.


Hi there:

When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.


Just scanned the computer and send us code number find it.

Hope helps.

My car turns over good, acts like it might turn on then continues to turn. I figure it might be fuel filter since low fuel light had come on.Or could it be th fuel pump got hot and is not working properly?


common problem is turning car off with engine not reaching normal operating temp and floods engine. try this. DE-CHOKING PROCEDURE WHEN ENGINE CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START
If the engine does not start, try the following procedure to start the engine using the de-choke mode.
Failure to do so may aggravate the no start condition.
1. Depress and hold the accelerator pedal to the floor and crank the engine for 7-8 seconds. (This will clean out any unburned fuel from the combustion chamber)
2. Release the ignition key to stop cranking.
3. Release the accelerator pedal and start the engine. If the engine starts while performing Step 1 the engine will rev up. Immediately release the ignition key to stop cranking and remove your foot from the accelerator pedal.
^ Do not keep holding the ignition switch in the START position over 10 seconds if the engine does not start. This may result in a weakened or dead battery.
^ Avoid racing the engine or sudden take off right after starting the engine.
^ If the engine still fails to start following the De-choking procedure, have your vehicle inspected by your Mazda Dealer.

for your info there is a recall for this problem. contact mazda.

Engine will turn over, but will not start


Suggestion, don;t try and start the car with the gas pedal pushed to the floor. Asking for trouble in the future.

Could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

Check engine light on? If so, Have the code read/scanned at your mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore.

92 jeep wrangler has power but wont turn over to start


The terms "turning over" and starting are often confused... Cranking (turning over) is when the starter turns the engine, regardless of the end result. Starting is when the engine actually runs (even if for a moment).
If your problem is that the engine is turning when the starter is engaged, but not starting, then you have either a fuel or spark fault.
If the engine is not turning, check that the battery has a full charge, and holds adequate power when loaded, that proper voltage is reaching the starter and there is a good engine ground. Power should also be present at the small trigger wire on the starter when ign key is turned to start position.After checking these things you can begin to make a decision on what needs attention and proceed from there.

Car shakes when trying to start and doesn't turn over


  1. hold gas pedal to floor while trying to start. do not pump pedal.
  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine
