Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you check and replace the coil pack. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs. One good reason why the car won't start.

Hope you find this helpful and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2005 saturn relay wont start acts like its not getting fuel


Is the security light lit ? anti - theft system ! Try spraying carburetor cleaner into the engine through the throttle plate ,if it starts you have a fuel delivery problem . The fuel pump or the injectors are not be turned on . You should check to see if there is spark also ,pull a plug wire an hold it near metal on the engine somewhere an have a helper try an start the vehicle . No spark , you have a ignition problem . You could have a no spark problem an it would act the same as a not getting fuel problem .

Cranks but wont start


Whenever your car won't start, it is either fuel, spark, or air. In your case, because it died while driving and won't run very long, I think it's spark. I would guess that your alternator is no longer providing enough voltage to charge the battery, hence your battery acting like it's dead, and your car not wanting to run long when you do get it started. Use a multimeter to check the voltage coming from the alternator when the car is running. It should be 14.5V or so. If it is down around or lower than 13, replace the alternator.

My car has fire all inside lights turn on but wont start seems like it wants to but wont


check for spark at the plugs although you say you have spark. then spray intake cleaner into intake while trying to start. if the car starts then you probably have a fuel pump problem.
