Hey hank have you tried pulling the plugs out?
this would rule out starter and battery as an issue, dry starts usually
happen when the motor has been sitting for awhile. another possible
cause if the motor has been sitting for awhile in a damp place us
a rust build-up on the cylinder walls, pulling the plugs and giving the it
a shot of oil then cranking it over would help this .after this re-install the plugs.

2004 dodge stratus want turn over clicks like a dead battery


Check the wire connections on the starter If the small one is loose the starter solenoid will not engage the starter and you get a click like a dead battery. Several rapid attempts will usually get it going.

My 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good


To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES Starter Problems: Battery checks out fine. Electrical systems working. No blown fuses. Cables and plugs seated properly. Fluids all at proper levels. Car will not jump. Will only...


I think the electric smell is from the wires getting hot, from the cranking amps delivered by the battery. When your car does'nt start it's normal for you to try, and try again, over and over to start the car . . . making the wires heat up with all that juice.

Wont start like battery is dead but its not shorting out somewhere


is it making any sound when you crank it... if so, like a clicking sound it could be a bad battery connection and the cables/terminals could need cleaning
if it makes a whirr sound likes its starting but it is not cranking the engine it could be a starter solenoid...

if no sound hit your starter with a hammer once or twice and see if it starts... if so you need a new starter - if it still doesn't start check your fuses and if they are all good it could be a starter relay... hope this helps!!

2002 chevy express fuel pump/crank sensor?? not starting


i had a similar problem and called the dealer during lunch hour. i talked to a mechanic, the distributor in these vehicles is plastic, and is prone to cracking.not just the cap but the body also, I have been taking the cap off and wiping the moisture out of the cap. or replacing the cap but the problem is I need a new distributor. just a cheep way to get rolling is cleaning the inside of the cap, especially when it is very damp or the outside temp changes alot during the day. good luck.
