This model is not sold in the USA, so since we are based in San Mateo California I will have to assume this has OBD2 electronic engine controls? If this is the case, and I'm 95% sure it is in Europe, then what testing has been done to justify all these parts, one thing is for sure a Knock sensor will NOT cause a no start, ever a Crank sensor will cause a not start. When the engine doesn't want to start what is it losing? Is it spark to the spark plugs? Is it fuel pressure? If I am going to help you here I'll need to know exactly what has been done and why, that includes the history of what fault codes were present in the memory of the ECM (electronic control unit), Has the fuel pressure be monitored when the no start occurs?. Also what do you mean it "sounds like it going to turn over" that is very vague. Thanks I await your answers to these questions before I can assist any further.

S-10 Sometimes Starts, Mechanic Can't Find Problem

Yep, heres one. Start with pulling the crank fuse. The fuse is probably good, but you have a corrosion/contact issue. Putting it back will solve this issue. I would do all of them, as one will do it, more are sure to follow. Also do they relays. Next would be checking wires. Most times wires will loose connection at the plug, sometimes they will break right at the plug.

1996 Chevrolet Corvette LT4 "Intermittent problems with starting the car"

Sounds like an intermittent fuel pressure regulator problem, or the fuel pump periodically doesn't run when you turn the key on (electrical problem). When you turn the key to on, the fuel pump should run for a few seconds to pressurize the fuel delivery system (you should hear the pump running at the back of the car). His "fix" is to just do this twice to make sure the pump runs and the proper pressure is at the engine when you go to start the car.
I would check to make sure the pump runs for a few seconds with key on. I would also check the fuel pressure before and while trying to start the car (to make sure it is in the proper range).

Turn key wouldnt start

Possible causes, flat battery, faulty alternator, coil or starter motor,though sounds more like power problem, do you have power to lights, radio etc when key is turned on even though nothing happens.

My clock keeps resetting to 1 o clock in my chevrolet kalos 1.4sx 16v. Lots of people seem to have the same problem but nobody says how to fix the problem.

You need to check that the 12V power supply is still active when the ignition key is removed. The ignition switch could be faulty and may need replacing.

Kalos ABS Light stays on?

Hi I had the same problem with my 06 Kalos and it failed the MOT because of the light staying on I tried all sugestions in different forums including new abs rings new brakes etc what worked for me was swithing the ignition key on and off at least six times turning the key alll the way back and then starting the engine the light did not go initially but the next day but this was enough to pass the MOT it came back on after going over potholes but i done it again and it went off and stayed off.

I have a Daewoo Kalos and a intermittent problem with the clutch pedal. The pedal will go down but won't come back up again without me pulling it up but it doesn't happen all the time. I...

As long as the clutch is releasing and there are no leaks, replacing the slave will not help. A possible solution is to add or change the return spring. I'm not familiar with this model, but it is likely a good mechanic could devise a small modification for this purpose. Another possibility is to place a small block under the pedal to keep it from going down to where it will not come back.

While driving my car today it just stopped and oil i think started coming out of it then it wouldnt go back or forward without making noise and even then would barely move

I believe you blew your tranny
Go to an Auto wrecker and pick up a used one, it is cheaper Tow it to your mechanic and have him change it His labour will be very high unles he knows you well. 7 to 8hr work plus. If and when replacing have him replace oil and filter on the tranny
