I was coming home decided to go in the grocery store and get milk,
came back out the Engine Turns over fine (at Normal rate) but it will
not start. The Battery is new, and I never had problem with this car
Jim thank you, but can you please tell me in plain english what that
means. sorry i just know a little about cars not much. But Before I
show it to mechanic i dont want them to take advantage of me so I want
to get opinions of you experts. Thanks
is the check engine light on? if so, the engine computer has registered
a fault and you need to borrow a code reader from kragen/pep boys, etc
and find out what it is. that'll give you a better handle on the
no-start than simply guessing. it'll also save you money on paying
someone else to do the same thing for you.
1. never drive around with the check engine light on. it's there for a
reason. find out what the problem is and get it fixed.
2. if your "mechanic" never reset the light, they're not really a
mechanic. find someone else who is. [see #1 above.]
3. absent finding out what the code is, you're wasting people's time.
you can buy a code reader online for ~$45 or you can borrow one for free
at most auto parts stores.
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, etc. never drive around with the check engine
light on. it could be something serious and you could be making it
worse and costing yourself a lot of money.
