Q: Q: Car won't start

asked by on

My car won't start. It does crank though.

No start situations are difficult to diagnose because of all the variable involved. Cranking but not starting can be caused by many things like a faulty fuel pump, bad crank or cam sensor, an active theft deterrent system, etc. With all the computer systems on cars these days it is usually best to seek the help of a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you properly diagnose your no start condition and avoid replacing parts that are still functioning properly.
