My car won't start. I don't think it's getting fuel.
Not enough fuel at start up can be a possibility. This could be caused by damaged fuel lines, failing fuel pump, or even a clogged fuel filter or clogged injectors. The vehicle also won't start if there isn't enough air flow or spark being provided to the combustion chamber. Mechanical failure is also a possibility such a jumped tooth in the timing or bent valves or damaged pistons. Insufficient power being delivered by the battery can keep the motor from turning over as well. A proper diagnostic inspection should be carried out by a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, in order to find and fix your car not starting issue right the first time.
