Q: Q: Engine not turning over

asked by on

My car won't start.

There are many reasons why a car won’t start. Everything from a low battery, fuel pressure issues, to ignition system problems, crank and cam sensors, engine timing, etc. Because of all the variables and the limited information, it is very difficult to offer accurate information on a problem like this. My suggestion to you is to seek help from a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you diagnose your car’s starting issue.
