Dont try to crank anymore....bores will be full of sucked in water....and you may damage the con rods. Remove sparkplug (glowplug if diesel) and expel the water first. Dry off air intake hoses and replace air filter too.

If it wont crank the engine then its probable that water has gotten into the starter or engine fuse bay and and damaged either of these. You can try leaving the hood open for a day or two to let the engine bay dry out and see if the car will start but with water damage its best to get it into a dealership or shop right away and to call your insurance company.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

Car won't start in morning, but after jump runs the rest of the day


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?
If it won't crank, have you had the battery tested ? Is it draining power overnight ?

My 96 jeep Laredo will not turn over. I've checked


sorry turns over means ZERO
the crank shaft can spin or not
the starter can in fact spin and crankshaft not.
and some think turns over means, engine runs. now that fact makes turns over, a dead statement.

the word is cranks over, the engine cranks over robustlyl
and then the engine runs.
then runs for more that 3 seconds, and the ASD relay holds. (step by step his works like this ,93 to now)

wont crank ? (clear statement in fact)
cranks ok, (crank shaft spins fast) can be seen and heard.
runs for 3 seconds? and stalls (ASD relay drop out) can be seen.
runs for 5min and stalls. (complex)
runs for hours and stalls. (even more complex)
all are key facts to the solution.

tell more..... tell all it does good bad or ugly
for better suggestions!

try locking your car with the key and unlocking it with the key, leave it for 30 second or so between the locking and unlocking , the car thinks some one has tampered with it

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

1994 Honda Accord DX radiator is blowing out antifreeze and car won't start.


Pull the plugs out and then crank the engine over if water comes out of the plug holes you have a busted head gasket which would give you compression in the coolant system thusblowing out antifreeze as well as overheating.

Dear sirs, I have a 2000 Ford Explorer which won't start. All light in the dashboard turn on but the engine won't crank. We've tried to crank the engine direct from the battery and it cranked....


yea got get you more troubles
just check the alternator is charging well and no battery light on dashboard it indicate the bad alternator
monitor your battery if it got old and cannot hold the charge any more
you said when you used another one your car turned on
