Q: Engine turns, doesn't start

asked by on February 28, 2016

My car won't start. The engine turns over but won't start.

The most common failure is the fuel pump module not giving enough fuel pressure to the engine. The fuel system should be checked to diagnose the no-start condition for you. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and test your vehicle for you
