You may have bad fuel,it starts after awhile right? suggest you add 1/4 bottle of CLEAR rubbing alcohol to your fuel tank,then add 5gallons of fuel,then add lucas fuel injector cleaner to the gas that you purchased,on the spot. drive the car 15miles and see if this repairs it. remember!!!!!!only clear rubbing alcohol will help,not GREEN CLEAR!!!if this does'nt help. then replace the idle control sensor,about $20.00 and on top of engine,and where you purchase it at,most clerks will assist,most very likely,advance auto in halls tn.

U should first scan cars computer system for any obviuos codes then u have a basis to start on.for ex. if u have a lean code then u could chek fuel pressure for pressure to b at specs . u could also have a restricted fuel filter. does the car have a lack of power wen driving? surge at cruising speeds? another telltale sign of weak fuel psi.... worn sparkplugs, possible faulty mass air flo sensr. jus some obviuos things to consider. hope this was helpful.

Assuming there is nothing wrong with the engine internally ,timing belt is timed correctly etc motor is not locked up from lack of oil etc the starter could be defective and drawing more current than the battery can supply or the battery cables have bad connections or internal corrosion that you can not see i would check the connections on the battery and clean them first then follow the ground cable to where it attaches to the first frame connection remove it and clean the terminal and the frame then follow it to the last ground believe its at or near trans bellhousing and do same , you could remove the starter and have it tested, you can but a replacement battery cables from dealer but it comes as a complete harness but exspensive

Felt a clunk, engine died, brake light came onin my Isuzu Rodeo, now there is just a clicking sound when I try to start it.


check see if you have12.5 volts at batery if not alternator failed.if alternator good,could have broke timing belt,or internal engine or transmission damage check see if you can turn engine with a large 1/2 socket and wrench if not engine could have seized up.

Have 2006 f350 desiel. driving home and check engine light came on. Went out next morning and truck wont start.


Fuel pressure good battery is good make sure the positive part of the batery post has good connection, a good indication of hard to start is glowplug relay you should hear the clicking of that relay when you turn the key on. The FICA has alot of problems with no start and so does the ICP. You need the scan tool data stream to track this down for a no start.

The car sat for 8 years and the remote battery died. i replaced the battery and it still doesnt work


Hello;
*years is quite some time. Have you been successful at turning the engine over by hand? You may have to WD40 all the cylinders to help the rings a little, then hand turn the engine a few times to loosen things up. If a fresh batery won't turn it, it needs some help. Good Luck, Ned

Changed batery in my 1997 oldsmobile cutlas and now it wont start


So everything was fine before you changed the battery and then after you installed the new battery the car wont start?
Did you double check that the battery was the correct model for your car?
Did you check that the battery cables and connectors are still in good shape (clean, tight, no signs of damage, fraying, or over-heating).
Did you check that the battery came fully charged?
Check the connections at the battery, starter, and engine block (ground).
