Q: My car dont start

asked by on

Myncar don't start i not the battles

My car has 20700 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Without knowing what the symptoms are, it would be tough to guess at what is going on. There are a lot of possible causes for a vehicle to not start, knowing where to start looking really depends on what the symptoms are. Does it crank and not fire, fire and not stay running, or just not crank at all? A bad fuel pump, failed ignition coil, failed sensor, bad timing belt, faulty ignition, and a bad starter will all have different symptoms, that will get diagnosed differently. If you need help identifying and/or repairing the fault, contact a certified mechanic, like those available at YourMechanic.com.
