Q: Q: Car cranking but not starting.

asked by on

The car cranks, but will not start.

This vehicle engine and year has more than one possible failure for this complaint and no one stands out more than the fuel pump in the fuel tank. It is also possible that it could be could be a crank or cam sensor. My recommendation is to have a certified technician check the fuel pressure and repair the fuel system relay, pump and filter as needed. If fuel pressure is ok then he will check for spark and injector pulse.
