Q: My car cranks but won't start.

asked by on

My car will crank but not start. Sometimes it takes a few tries then it starts. But now all it does is crank, and not start I've had the battery die, replaced it, it started fine, then after a few times of starting it, it went back to cranking but not starting.

My car has 160000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in about your 2002 Pontiac Grand AM. There are several possible causes for a vehicle to not start. There could be a fuel supply problem, an ignition problem, or even a failed sensor. For an issue like this, it would be best to have a certified mechanic, like those available at YourMechanic, perform some diagnostics to identify where the starting problem is located.
