how do i fix my 2005 buick century, has power but no crank

Asked by Nov 30, 2016 at 12:30 PM about the 2005 Buick Century Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried sparying anti freez on the carburetor but theres no luck, everything is
turning on when i turn the keys but it wont crank and steering wheel is still
stuck

Tried boosting it too

Any ideas guys?

Its already 200k on odometer, could it possibly be the timing belt?
Or just the fuel pump? Coz i left it outside parked overnight and its so freezing
outside today

Any help would be much appreciated.. ciao

a 2005 Buick doesn't have a carburetor, plus spraying antifreeze on it won't help none. You must be talking about the throttlebody. Wipe off the antifreeze please. You said the steering wheel is locked. You have to put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position and move the steering wheel back and forth so it unlocks, then you can start the car.
