2000 Oldsmobile silhouette won't start
I bought a 2000 Oldsmobile silhouette from a trusted person. Drove it home
about an hour or so, ran great, no problems, started it next day, died first time
but started next time. Two days later, tried to start it but it just clicked and tried
to fire, called friend for a boost! Boosted 20 minutes, but still wouldn't start.
Inside lights worked, clock worked too. Kept trying to boost, with their car
reeved up, the van misfired, but would not start,
Have the battery load tested. It might be very dead. Especially if you're in a cold climate. Also check the battery cable connections. They might be loose or corroded. HTH. -Jim
Just bought a battery today, haven't put it in yet, it is very cold right now, would a battery cause it to back fire from all the cranking?
Not likely. Is it backfiring from the throttle body or the exhaust? -Jim
From the tail pipe!
Update* put a new battery in it and it started right up! Thanks for the help!
