My car is not starting.
Hello. If your engine is not cranking over then most of the time it is a problem with either the battery or the starter. The battery would need to be load tested and the starter checked. If it is cranking and not starting then the most common cause is a valve timing problem from a bad timing belt or maybe a bad crank position sensor. The computer would need to be scanned first and then a compression test done. If nothing turns out with those I would typically do a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel pump has failed. If you plan on having this diagnosed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to determine why your car is not starting.
