Q: Q: Car not cranking

asked by on

My car will not crank. I believe it is one of the sensors.

Hi there. This vehicle not starting is an indication that the fuel filter and fuel pump are going bad. Over time, the fuel pump will fail and not put out enough fuel pressure to start the car. I would have a technician come out and inspect the vehicle’s starting problem and replace any failing parts.
