Q: Vehicle not starting

asked by on

The vehicle won't start. It tries to turn over, but doesn't start.

From your description it sounds like you may be having a problem with your battery or starter. If either one of these components go bad your vehicle could try to crank but not have enough to get the engine started. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come and diagnose what is causing your truck not to start.
