Asked by Sep 22, 2007 at 10:28 PM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro RS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car will not turn over at all. When it runs it runs great but it has cut off twice and the first time I waited about 10mins and it turned over and started. This time it has been about a day since it has been off and it will not turn over.

Do you mean it won't crank or cranks but won't start? If it cranks, it could be a bad ignition module/pickup coil. If it won't crank, check and/or clean the battery connections with a battery terminal wire brush. If that doesn't work, it could be a bad/worn out ignition switch.

P.S.- Also check your air and fuel filter or fuel pressure.

If it will not turn over at all, have your battery and charging system checked. Most auto parts stores will do this for free.
