Starter? When I turn the key over to start my car, the starter is spinning but won't start for a while. I have to keep trying and pump the gas and hold the gas peddle down once I hear the engine try to start and then it will start. It will do this often but when I am driving my car all day or at least for a while then try to start it up again, it starts just fine or may take two or three tries to get it started. It has always helped when I pump the gas when the starter finally engages the en


Lets start at the beginning. Are you saying the engine does not crank, or does not start ?Either way, pumping the gas pedal has no affect on anything with starting the engine. But cranking the engine for an extended period of time could. ... 2000 Nissan Sentra

I left my car for two days without starting it and the temperature dropped well below freezing. On the third day, while still cold, it wouldn't start. It tried to turn over two or three times, but was clearly not going to start. I was able to push start the car and replaced the battery, but still the ignition does nothing. The only way to start the car is to push start. Does this sound like a starter problem? Distributor?

The car will not start. All the lights come on, dash, interior and head lights. The car will not turn over. It does not even try to turn over. I looked at the battery terminals and they looked very clean. The starter motor is not clicking. The car did sound like it was having trouble starting like the battery was low for the last couple of days. Could it be any fuses and where are they? I had the ignition replaced three years ago when it did not start could it be that again where the ignition is

My 98 ford Windstar sit in freezing temperatures for three days before i got in to start it.Took the battery to get tested. that wasn't the problem. When I try to start it it only makes a thud noise,with no firing. It almost sounds like a starter problem.Ive had starter problems in other cars and it was always a clicking noise.Not a thud?????? Also is it possible that the anti freeze had gotten frozen it the engine. Or to much oil gunk in the engine because of the busy town I live in??????????


You said you took the battery out to be tested. Was the battery dead. You didn't mention recharging it. Even though it tested good, it would still need to be charged. Get the battery charged and see if the vehicle starts. If the engine won't crank w ... Ford Windstar

I have a 2 in 1 prostart remote car starter. It was installed a few days ago on my standard honda civic. Sometimes it works fine, but most often when i try to start it with the starter the lights will flash, you hear the car trying to start itself then it will give up and the lights will flash 3 times. I've tried several times in a row when the car was already warm. When I put the key in the ignition it start fine. I need to know what the problem could be.


Dear,\015\012\015\012Check if the remote Battery is genuine (I mean full) other wise maybe it's a relay issue or timer issue in the module itself (which you installed).\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012Eng. Ghassan Alasmar ... Honda Civic

I have a 1994 buick park avenue, one day the car just wouldnt start and the security light came on. After three minutes the security light would go off and the car would start up.

Now we have replaced the wire harness in the steering column, but the car will not start at all, and the security light flashes. Can anyone help? Itsbeen

I have a 2001 IS 300 with 160,000 mi. I was having trouble starting the car in the morning where it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to turn over. It is in a garage in California, so not in extreme cold. I got a new battery and it was fine for about 4 days. Also, once the car starts it is fine for the day. This morning it again would not start until I tried 4 or 5 times. The starter just made a steady sound no clicking, and all the check lights were on. I did pump the gas on this morning try. I

Good day everyone. A couple times when I had tried to start my car I had heard this kind of grinding sound and the car shook a little bit. Trying to get to the bottom of this problem I started my car about 15-17 times or so trying to get it to do it again but it wouldn't and hasnt done it since.

1999 Isuzu Amigo V6 2wd: Car doesn't start always. Turn the key, lights come on, radio on, etc, but no clicking noise, no engine trying to turn over, absolutely nothing. I put in a new battery, but same issue. Some days it fires right up and other days, nothing when the key is turned. Just keep trying and eventually it starts, but it is taking longer for it to decide to start. Where do I trouble shoot first? Starter relay (is there one), starter itself, ignition switch? Any ideas?

Hi, I have a Nissan Altima 95. Had a starter problem. I live in colder climate region of Alberta, canada. I purchased a used starter from a parts seller in Texas.
