One of the most frustrating things that can happen to a car owner goes something like this: You pack up the kids, the lunches, your laptop, and all the work you brought home last night. You rush out the door with just enough time to drop the kids off at daycare and get to work on time.
You turn your key in the ignition, and nothing happens. You try again and again, only to realize that your car definitely won’t start. Most of the time this is due to a dead battery, but there are some other relatively common reasons for your car not to start. Here are the symptoms of some different issues.
There are a lot of possibilities for this common symptom. Check, or have your automotive technician check, your spark plugs, distributor, and timing belt. Depending on how poorly the engine is performing, you might need to get off the road immediately, or you might be able to take care of this on the way home. Either way, don’t wait more than a day to have it checked out.
Few things are as frustrating as a car that won’t start. Fortunately, these issues are fairly easy to diagnose and correct. If you use a temporary measure such as a jump start, be sure to have your car checked out as soon as possible to ensure that the problem doesn’t return.
