Why does my 1998 ford escort zx2 not want to start i here awinding noise its not the startser cause the car wont even pop start
a whining noise could be that the starter is not engaging on the fly wheel.
Its a new starter a few hours old thats what i taught is was as well
Hate to say this, but new starters can be bad right out of the box. You can short across the starter solenoid and see if it engages. make sure the car is in neutral and only do it for a second. if the starter spins but doesnt engage and turn the engine, then you have a starter problem. I am assuming of course that the battery is fully charged and all that good stuf.
The car cranks like it wants to start but dont start
check fuel pressure, check for spark.
I figured out what it was it was the timeimgbelt
