Q: Q: Car cranks but won't start

asked by on

My car will crank but won't start. At first we thought it was the battery, so we bought a new battery placed it in and made sure everything was tightened. Went to turn it on, nothing. So, checked the starter and took that in for a test just to find out there's nothing wrong with it. Thought it could possibly be the fuel pump and so we bought a new one and turns out it works just fine. Not sure what else it could be.
My car has an automatic transmission.
