2002 Mistubishi lancer oz wont start (someties)

Asked by Dec 01, 2016 at 02:00 AM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Mistubishi Lancer OZ and it won't
crank sometimes. Everything in the car turns on all
the lights and all and sometimes when I turn the
key it's makes a little buzzing sounds you know
like it's Injecting the gas but the car won't start so I
have to kinda push it in a little hard and try that a
couple times and sometimes it helps. I recently
changed the spark plugs, ignition coils, and wierd
so I know that's not the problem anymore. Help
please and thanks in advance.

Have you checked the starter or the alternator. If your alternator is bad them the car will not stay running. If you can turn the car on let it run while you disconnect the battery. If it stays running then your alternator is fine and I would check the starter. If the car shuts off you need a new alternator.
