When you say it turns over it means that the spark plugs are working properly. When you say it wont crank it means that you need to check to make sure your starter is working properly. Looks like you need a new one. What kind of engine SOHC or DOHC, 6 cyl?

2008 chevy impala lt won't start


Won't start how ? Does the engine crank when the key is turned to the start position ? Engine cranks no start ! Or nothing happens when the key is turned to the start position ? that is a no crank no start condition . Very different diagnostic procedures . Is there a padlock car symbol lit on the instrument cluster ? Anti-theft system problem !

Problem 5: Engine Cranks But won't Start

Starterrelay 2007 chryslermagnum engine will not turn over


turn over means , ZERO !
does the starter turn over or does the crank shaft turn over.?
see that gross ambiguity?
engines CRANK , the starter can spin fast and the crankshaft sits still.
then starts (EFI does this part, spark and fuel)
then sustain start called running. (EFI keeps to so...)
its 3 steps, which does yours fail. no crank>?

if confused, look at the crank shaft damper pulley.
you can see the actually crank spin .
most folks know the sound of cranking is good. a very unique sound.

no crank
no start
stalls after starting

Don't turn on


Good morning.
cars do not turn on, they have 4 steps. (ottocycle engine cars)
cranks, starts and runs, and sustains. (each step can fail)

my guess, is yours fails at the crank step , #1?
no crank ? diffr,car but steps are same.
http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html

step 1: do jumper cables crank car.? up? from a running other car?
if the battery is indeed charged, at 12.6v rested.
then hot wire the ST KEY line, does it crank now?

Yes?, then the KEY line is bad, ask how to fix.
no?, then the starter is bad. (hit it with a hammer. crank now)
hit the casing of the starter, this can make it wake up for a while.

trick 2, wiggle the A/T? gear shifter, as you CRANK iT.
trick 3,, start the car in neutral , this used near virgin contacts and can start many dead key line car.

My '95 volvo 960 got hot, and battery died. Tried to jump start in and it would crank but not start.


Dead Battery

Always try & charge,it is unsafe to jump
a dead battery, as it may have shorted cells

If the engine rotates,turns over,cranks,it is the same thing

To say it won't crank or won't turn over is wrong
That is a no start

1---Engine does turn over,rotates,or cranks

2----Engine is a no start or won't start or won't fire, no iginition

Car wont crank 1994 plymouth acclaim


Not sure what yor experiencing . Do you have crank no start or no crank no start? No crank no start is battery and cables issue. Crank no start is ignition , plugs, and fuel.
