I had this happen with a ford some years ago. I took out the spark plugs and sprayed
WD-40 in the cylinder bores through the plug holes. I left the plug wires off (marked
of course and in a position that they coudn't arc. Then I used a set of jumper cables to
give the starter a little more starting current. (Starters use high current for brief periods
but cannot be used like a conventional electric motor). After running for a bit, I changed
the oil (since it would need changed anyhow after sitting for so long).

HELP with my problem to my Question and added details

A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely?
Good luck.

My mountaineer won't start. It sat for a little over a year because of transmission issues. When I finally got a trans for it, it wouldn't start. I replaced all spark plugs and replaced the...

If the engine is turning, but slow, she may need the battery terminals cleaned, if it has sat for over a year, yes, it may need a new battery. If the engine is turning over and she is not cranking up. Standard rules apply... does she have fuel? does she have spark, does she have compression? First thing is easy, get a can of starting fluid and give her a spray in the air filter area during cranking, if she pops off you have spark, which means no fuel. If it does not try to hit, that means no spark and more trouble shooting will need to be done. If it starts on starting fluid, you may have a bad fuel pump. AS gas turns to gunk as it dries up. And that may have gummed up the pump and filter. Hope this helps FixYa up.

2002 blazer crank but wont start

2 things that you have to check on no starts every time. Spark at spark plug and fuel. Turn key to run position and listen at gas tank for fuel pump to run you should hear a whining noise. This will only happen for 3 to 4 seconds then it will shut off until engine starts. You can turn key off then to run every 3 to 4 to listen for fuel pump. You may hear the relay click off in engine area even if pump does not run. Fuel pump failure is pretty common. If pump is running pull spark plug out or put a spare plug into spark plug wire and have someone crank engine set plug on engine and watch for spark. This will give you a starting point. Hope it helps.

It'sfull of full and will turn over but it won't

You could have a fuel pump, or spark issue. You need to know what is missing first!!! Fuel or spark.

Two possibilities:
1. the starting motor/solenoid is stuck;
2. engine internals frozen.

To try and check/correct:
a. temporarily hardwire the starting solenoid direct to the + terminal of the battery. often the starting solenoid would have two wires, one very big that goes to the battery's B+ terminal and one smaller that goes to the IGN switch. Momentary touching the wire to the + terminal & smaller solenoid wire connector should engage the solenoid and turn the starter motor.
b. try to manual turnover the engine. Use an appropriately sized socket and power wrench. Fit the socket to the big nut on the lower front crankshaft pulley and turn. There would be resistance but it should turn. if not, the insides may be frozen. You can try removing the valve cover and apply engine oil direct to the camshafts assembly. Additionally, you can try removing all the sparkplugs and pouring a bit of diesel fuel. The purpose of both is to apply lubrication to the moving parts.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
