Hello...we can help you with that. If you have a good battery and your starter motor is turning over the engine rapidly enough, that means you have a problem in the area of ignition or fuel. That would includes things like faulty sensors in the air induction system, Crankshaft Position Sensor and that sort of thing. With doing a diagnosis, it’s hard to say exactly what the fault is- but a faulty fuel pump, coil, or sensor are among the possibilities. Even simple things like the chip in your ignition key have to be ruled out. YourMechanic is mobile and can come right to your door to help you deal with your cars inability to turn over issue. We would be pleased to help you and provide an economical, professional repair of you.
