Why my car wont turn over
My car just had the battery replaced. And it
i took it to a mechanic and he said the
alternator was good and the starter was
good. I then drove the car for the remainder
of the day then i turnt it off and came back
to it an hour later. The car sputtered and
then failed to turn over completely. I know
its not the battery and the alternator. But i
dont know what else to check. I've checked
the spark plugs and fuses. But I'm no
use a wire brush on the cable heads they must have good contact
Which cables? And i forgot to mention that the car started this morning. It took a couple seconds but then i turnt it off and tried it again and it would start back up and wouldnt turn over
sorry meant to say battery cables be careful
So i can take the cable covers off and brush them?
Yes, I use vaseline on the battery terminals to keep them from corroding. Negative comes off first, then positive, put back on in reverse. But you might have an issue with your ignition switch if you are getting intermittent starting. Have your mechanic look it over again.
