Q: Q: My car randomly won't start..Why?!

asked by on

My car randomly won't start. I've had an oil change, which I forgot about, and waited so long, I thought that was the problem with it not starting at first. After two months straight of no problem starting, it's starting that no start thing again. I take one battery end off, turn the key to the on position, tap the one battery end to the other, reconnect it then start it from under the hood. A guy showed me to do that.

My car has 100000 miles.
