Is it trying to turn, or just clicking? if its just clicking, it could be your starter or ignition coil. if its turning, but not starting, then it could be your spark plugs, spark plug wires or distributor cap/coil packs.

ignition coil should be tested first, by disconnecting the coil wire from the distributor/coil pack end, and holding the bare end very close to a part of the cars metal frame. have someone turn the ignition, and if the ignition coil is good, you should see a spark/arc.

spark plugs can be removed and examined for white/black discoloration and or oily build-up.

the starter can be tested by a specialty starter/alternator shop and they may be able to cheaply sell you a new cellaniod, a cellaniod contact, or they may need to rebuild it for around $100.

your gas pump may be bad, in which caxe you can try to crank it with the gas line removed from the fuel injector, and see if fuel comes out of it.

your timeing belt/chain may be broken, in which case, you look to see if the cylinder positions change when moved in gear, with the cylinder cover removed.

i suggest you get a "chilton's" or "hayne's" manual specific to your model for around $20,. they have illustrations/walk throughs of all the diagnostic procedures i have mentioned, and may have some more i havent mentioned.

Sounds as though the battery is no good,
unless you know otherwise & also had it tested
Charging a battery doesn't address it's internal

You have battery cables that corrode inside & can be
voltage drop tested
You have the starter & solenoid,ignition sw & such, to name
a few,lots of possible causes & things to check

Car won't start just click


Have you checked to see if you can turn the crank with a wrench ?
And are the cables good from the battery to the starter ?

Why won't it start?


There should be a clutch safety switch that prevents you from cranking the engine with the clutch engaged.
Have you checked the switch for power ?

Car cranks but won't start, battery ok all systems seem to be ok any ideas?


Try having someone check to see if the fuel pump has stopped working. I suddenly developed the same problem as yours three days ago, and that's what heppened to mine. They go without warning or prior symptoms, it seems.

It won't turn over


Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.
