“Why Won’t My Car Start?!”. So, you’ve got on your best suit, your best shoes, you got your teeth whitened on Monday, your haircut is perfection and you’re just about ready for the most important meeting of your career! Except, your car isn’t! …but WHYYYY???? Well, we’ve got some reasons for you. Here they are: A dead battery or a broken ignition switch: A dead battery means no power, which means no electricity reaches to the motor to start it. A broken ignition switch means that the wiring isn’t working, so your battery won’t even get a startup signal.. Lack of compression: If you don’t have a certain amount of compression, your fuel mixture won’t ignite.. Distributor failure: The distributor is the device that gives the cylinders voltage, but it can get worn out or gunky after a while.. Bad Fuel Mix: You may have one or more of several things: – The wrong mix of fuel – A clogged up fuel line – An impure fuel mixture Also, “if you don’t have the right mixture of fuel to air, it won’t ignite properly and your car won’t start.” Out of oil: If there isn’t any oil or any clean oil, for that matter, then your cylinders can’t turn efficiently and your engine will lock up.. Crankshaft has worn out bearings: The pistons won’t be able to move smoothly and the engine won’t be able to run if that happens.. Plugged exhaust. This would stop exhaust from clearing out of the engine and there wouldn’t be any fuel space.. You should know who to call when your car gets into trouble like this. You can come to us for help.
