Q: Fuel injector problems causing starting issues.

asked by on

My car won't start. I think I have a problem with my fuel injector.

Does the engine crank over at all when you turn the key? If just one injector was having an issue your car would still start. However, there could be a misfire condition causing the engine to run rough. I would ask for help from a certified mechanic to look at your vehicle and see why it won’t start.
