Q: Acura tl crank no start

asked by on

My 00 acura tl serpentine belt broke off and wen that happened my engine shut off, and now it cranks but will not turn over...can you tell me what the problem is?
My car has an automatic transmission.

You need to check the engine sensors on the front of the engine. They may have gotten damaged by the belt when it broke. The crankshaft/camshaft sensors or wiring is damaged. I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose your starting issue firsthand to pinpoint what exactly is going on.
