Q: Car does not start

asked by on

My car won't start.

Hi! First, we will need to determine which no-start situation has occurred. If you turn the key and nothing happens, there is a fault in the starting/charging system. An engine that turns over but will not start, often has issues with fuel delivery or spark. Have a certified mechanic, like the ones at YourMechanic, come to you and take a closer look. This saves a lot of money on a tow bill and you have the security of our warranty.
