Q: Q: Vehicle not starting.

asked by on

Vehicle tries to turn over, but won't start.

This truck came with a three different size engines. The most common reasons for no starts are the engine timing belt is broken. The fuel pump is not pumping and would need replacement. A qualified mechanic would be able to inspect your vehicle and narrow down the problem pretty quick by checking compression and fuel pressure to see if the belt broke or the fuel pump stopped working.
