Q: Q: Car turns over but won't start

asked by on

The car won't start. It turns over, catches, but then stops.

Hello! I recommend first having the starting system checked to verify the starter and battery are functioning properly. Both components are vital to starting the car. If either or are malfunctioning it will cause the vehicle to experience a no start condition or conditions where the vehicle will be hard to start. YourMechanic provides well-trained technicians that will test the starting system of your vehicle if you desire.
