Car want start

Asked by Aug 12, 2017 at 05:01 PM about the 1996 Chevrolet Lumina LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car was driving fine I stopped for 5 minutes.
Back in it all it would do is Click. Tried to jump it it
still would not start all lights accessories work.
Check the battery 100% replace starter solenoid
replace coil pack. It still just clicks

Here is a video with a few ideas to make sure nothing in the block is seized and that the relay is not bad. I hope this helps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDDGBJY58E0

I watched your video and I did try the flywheel it doesn't turn freely like the video says it should. My car isn't clicking like his, it clicks but it also acts like it wants to start for a few seconds and then it fades away to no power. It really acts like the battery just doesn't have enough juice. Thank you for answering my question

Okay here's an update for anyone that has a similar problem to the one I had. Today I changed out the crankshaft sensor and still no go. Why the belt was off I check to make sure that it hadn't seized up. My brother comes over and finds out the problem and the problem was the AC pulley had froze and was not turning. Put a new AC compressor and it starts. I wasted $350
