Sounds like your vehicle could be off time. Check your timing marks on your vehicle for the specs. Hope this helps, James Booth

97 jeep wrangler whine at start up. put in mopar new starter and new starter and difficulty starting still


When you say you're having a hard time starting it does that mean it cranks over fine but it just takes a while to start or does that mean the starter is dragging when you try to start it

Mazda wont start, brand new battery


sounds like you have a failing ecu. the capacitors in the ecu are worn out. there has been a lot of problems with the ecu on mazda's over the years, only take one out put overload from the alternator and the ecu starts playing up. no codes come up as it don't code its self. having the battery off is like a reset.

My 2000 cadillac deville wont start. Battery and alternator good. Trunk or gas door will not open either until I start it. I jump start it and its fine all day until the next morning.


If you can jump start it, then it is most likely the battery. Unless you have had the battery Load Tested, a simple voltage check is not enough to ensure there are enough amps there to start the car, especially on cold mornings. Since you can warm start it and it seems to do well all day, my bet would be a weak or dead cell in the battery.

I have a 1997 Tahoe 5.7L 4 door model that ran fine all day. Next morning it wouldnt start. It will try to turn over but wont crank. The fuel pump does engage, filter is clean. Fuel flow goes to injectors...


Well,first off you need to make sure you are getting spark to the spark plugs first.Get some insulated pliers and pull off a spark plug wire,hold it next to the frame or exhaust and have someone spin the engine over.You should see spark jumping between the plug and the ground.If you do not,then you have an ignition problem.If you can spray fuel in the intake and it wont even try to start,then it sounds like you have an igniton problem.Verify that before going too far with the fuel system.If you have spark,then it may be your ECM could be fried and is not letting the fuel injectors open but it should still try and start if you are spraying fuel directly into the air intake.IF it has spark.

1991 cadillac eldorado, car wont turn over and makes clicking noises. How do I know if its the starter or a specific part on the starter going out? When you turn the key the headlights and dash lights,...


1st make sure your connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Next pull the battery out and have a parts store check it's condition. Even though the lights and radio work, it may be too weak to crank the engine over. If the battery checks out ok, then you are probably correct, it's the starter. Check in this order though, so you don't waste $ on parts you don't need. You don't want to pull the starter out to find it was a weak battery, or a bad connection (dirty or loose connection would prevent jump start from working.)

Hi
Try to jump start the car.
Put the jump leads on and leave it for 10 mins
that will charge the battery up
then try and start.
Also check the starter motor.

ENGINE CRANKS BUT WONT TURN OVER


you meant its a NO CRANK engine.
silent starter, say the word silent.
even the starter relay must click.
and if head lamps die, so will be the starter.
due to a dead battery,
sounds like a bad battery to me. dead or only
DISCHARGED.
if the Charge/battery lamp is off in the cluster driving. its ok. the alternator.

starter car with the jumper cables connected
and not next day.
only live jumps matter. or you go know where.
if you want to walmart they have tool there that
tests the alternator
battery
and for phantom drains all in 6 min work, the tool does all the work.

if the battery is charged, it will crank I bet
its discharging.
for 1 of 3 reasons.
1: its bad.
2: the charge system is dead.
3: phantom drains, it goes dead as you sleep
the head lamps dead is the big clue there.
