Q: Car will not start

asked by on

The first thing you could do is have that mechanic come out and verify the work done is not causing the no start. However, it sounds like a starter or battery causing the problem, but if the belt came off then that will cause it to not charge the battery. If you would like a second independent mechanic to take a look, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician will be able to come to your home or office to diagnose the no start issue in person.
