Q: Car cranks but doesn't start after overheating.

asked by on

Car was running hot and now will crank, but not start.

When any car experiences overheating, there are often damages done to other parts of the system that will prevent the car from starting up again. This is likely what your Toyota Camry is experiencing. Engine overheating causes a sharp rise in temperature, leading to components prematurely failing. When it comes to the engine overheating, it is best to have a certified mechanic inspect the engine as to why it is overheating and why your Camry is not starting. This mechanic will not only check for common problems such as fuel and spark, but they will also check to see if the engine has the proper compression to fire. All of these will give you answers on how to get your Toyota Camry back to running.
