2002 yukon denali xl wont start

Does the starter crank the engine over? If so, check for spark on a spark plug wire when cranking. If you have a strong blue spark, ignition is probably good. Check fuel pressure. Do you hear the fuel pump turn on for 2 seconds when turning key to on?

99 sable crank pully nut

It's a bolt, and if left hand threads, it will be the first time I have heard of such. No pin would be through the threads. Try the breaker bar or impact gun the other way. If engine tries to turn, pull the starter and wedge a block of wood against the ring gear teeth on the flywheel.
Don't know about sables, but thought all crank bolts were regular threads.

Is the crank shaft pulley on a renault 1.5 megane left/ or right hand thread

They'd be right hand threads-regular threads-to loosen, turn counter clockwise. An air impact wrench is best for removing the crank bolt. Or a long breaker bar and socket on the bolt, if you can hold the crankshaft stable so it doesn't turn backward with pressure on the bolt. You can pull the starter off, and wedge a big screwdriver or prybar against the flywheel's ring gear teeth, then turn the bolt with the breaker bar.

Van ran hot stopped instantly and now will not crank

This is never a good story. Remove all the spark plugs and squirt a little oil in all the cyclindersthough the spark plug holes. come back tomorrow after it's had pleaty of time to soak in. try to turn the motor by the crank pulley with a socket and a breaker bar try to turn it in either direction, if it turns try to turn it all the way over in both directons. once turning you can try the starter ( with the plugs still out) oncwe turning over quickly put the plugs back in and start it, Look into the reason for the overheating right away and find and fix the problem. If it still doesn't turn you can try harder by removing the starter and putting a prybar on the teethe of the flywheel and pry the motor to turn ( try both ways) if it's still locked the liklyhood of having a repairable engine is low and go shopping for a replacement motor. Or a replacement vehical ( might be cheaper.)

I was driving my 2005 2.2 ictdi honda when a low knocking noise started, as if i was going over the cats eyes in the road, this noise intensified until the car cut out completely. all electricis where...

Have you checked your oil lately
Things don't sound so good
Did you happen to look at the oil pressure gauge when the car was knocking
I have a feeling your have seized your motor.
When you attempt to start the car do you hear a clunk from the starter
If you do, remove all the spark plugs from the engine and disconnect the coil packs
try to turn it over again and see if the starter can turn it now
By pulling the park plugs you remove the pressure of compression from the motor.
You can also try to turn the crank Manuel with a breaker bar.
If you cant get the motor to turn over you have seized the motor and it need an overhaul.
Hope this helps give feed back please. FixYa

Our 1991 honda civic overheated we pulled over immeditely andwhile sitting everything went off now the it won't start or nothing now there was water on the battery

Wait for the car to cool off. Check for : 1. Fuel- does it have gas? 2. Spark- Is it getting good spark(electrical functioning-battery, starter, timing, etc.) 3. Compression- If the valves are toast the piston will not compress the air/fuel mixture for the spark to ignite it. No explosion, no start. Try to start it. Is there power in the vehicle? Does the engine turn over? If the engine turns over, does it have fuel? If it doesnt crank and the battery is fully charged then try jumping the starter solenoid, if it doesnt turn the engine then you must check to see if the engine is turning freely or seized by turning the crank with a breaker bar and socket. Is the engine turns then you should be able to troubleshoot it, if it doesn't then something is not letting it turn either in the head(s) or in the crank and that equals to pretty expensive repair costs. IF you get it to start, shut it off immediately and find the source of the overheating before going any further. Check coolant level(make sure the car has had enough time to cool down), check water hoses for leaks or cracks, check for a stuck thermostat or a clogged radiator.

1999 ford explorer has oil,but the engine acting likes it's locked up

Remove the serpentine belt and try to rotate the engine by hand. Take the spark plugs out and try to rotate the engine by hand. If it has an automatic tranmission disconnect the flexplate bolts and try to rotate the engine by hand. If no no luck the engine is seized somewhere and will need replaced or overhauled.

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start

Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.

Engine wont turn over

The engine sounds like it's seized. Because there was water in the engine it most likely has rusted the cyclinder walls. Now you still may get it to work. Drain the oil from the engine, pull all spark plugs and put automatic tranny fluid in each of the cyclinders (try to get enough in to cover the piston) this will seep down to the rings and loosen any rust holding the piston. Wait a couple of days, after about 8 hours try to hand crank the engine again like you did before ( leave the plugs out). When you can turn if somewhat freely try to turn it over with the starter (plugs still out) now this will make a mess because oil will shoot out plug hole but you'll have saved the engine. When it cranks like normal fill oil, clean the engine compartment lol. and put plugs in. on first start there will be lots of blue smoke because of the oil in the cyclinders but this will burn off in time. Good luck.

Sound like you have the typical "frozen" crank bolt. To remove it, it's counter clockwise. What you do to remove it when it's frozen, pull #1 spark plug out, rotate crank so #1 piston is at the bottom of the cylinder. Now take a long piece of rope and stuff it into the spark plug hole as much as you can. Use a screwdriver to keep stuffing rope into cylinder. The rope is now a piston stop. When turning the crank counter clockwise to remove it, you'll feel the crank stop. Now you can crank on the wrench to break the bolt loose. I use a long 1/2" drive breaker bar, long 1/2" extension, and a jack stand to support the extension and with a jack handle over the breaker bar, pull hard and you'll hear a loud pop. At this point the bolt will break loose for you. Don't worry you will not break the crank bolt doing this. After the bolt breaks loose, rotate the crank clockwise again just enough the remove the rope.
