Simple Factors Why Your Automobile Refuses To Start There's nothing more frustrating to a person in a rush to hit the streets than a vehicle that refuses to start. Engine problems such as this are really far more normal than the majority of vehicle owners imagine. Even if you follow a regular car maintenance schedule, you may still experience car breakdown at any time. While having your engine die on you is incredibly inconvenient, it's an issue that can definitely be sorted out. Just like any other problem, the very first thing you should do to mend it is to find out its cause. In order to find out the specific reason why your car's engine won't start, it is important that you know how the assembly starts in the first place. Once you turn your key in the ignition, voltage in your car's battery moves to your ignition switch. The voltage then goes towards the starter relay and starter motor. If the starter motor receives the voltage, it spins to start the engine. If there is enough spark in the cylinders, compression, of course, fuel, the engine will start. You need to understand there are lots of probable reasons why your car will die on you. To narrow these down, pay attention closely to what can happen when you turn the key in the ignition. If you don't hear a sound from your vehicle, the trouble lies with the battery. It may be dead or perhaps heavily corroded. If you'll hear a ticking noise, then it is one of two things. Maybe it's your battery or your starter motor. If it's not the battery, then there might be an issue with the ignition system not getting enough voltage. When you hear your engine turn over but still refuses to start, these could be the most possible causes: • W ires connecting the battery to the starter motor may be frayed or loose, thus blocking the motor from getting voltage • Insufficient spark in the cylinders Preferably, if your engine turns over but still will not start, the first thing you check for is a spark. It's always a great idea to have a spark tester kept in your trunk all the time. If there's no spark, the issue lies with the ignition system. • Insufficient fuel However, if there's a spark and the issue is still unresolved, check your fuel next. If the fuel gauge shows there's still enough fuel however your car still won't start. You can examine the fuel pump, the pressure in the fuel line, the fuel filter, and the fuel injectors. • Inadequate compression If not enough fuel is the problem, then the issue may be caused by insufficient compression, which inturn can be caused by a timing belt gone loose. Once you've discovered the main reason why your car just won't start, you can go ahead and carry out minor repairs. If you are clueless how to go about repairing the issue, then it is time to seek the assistance of a trusted mechanics in manly service.
