FIAT Engine Not Working

Why Is My Car Not Starting?

It can be easy to panic the next time your car doesn't start. You may even assume something serious has occurred to your engine. Fortunately, the issue isn't always serious and can be a quick and easy fix when you get it diagnosed by a professional technician.

1. Dead Battery

Dead batteries are extremely common, whether they've reached the end of their lifespan or have died because you left the light on in the cabin of the car. This may be why your engine isn't starting, making it necessary to try to jumpstart the car. You can also take it to a technician to determine if this is the cause of the problem.

2. Faulty Ignition

Faulty ignitions are also one of the reasons engines don't start. Fortunately, this doesn't affect the battery, so your headlights will still turn on when you try to operate the car.

3. Bad Starter

If you hear a clicking noise the next time you try to start your car, it's likely due to a bad stater that no longer works. Starters are motors that are connected to the battery. The engine may not crank when you insert your key into the ignition.

4. Clogged Fuel Filter

You may not think much about your fuel filter, which is why it may be clogged and at the end of its lifespan. Try to replace the filter every 20,000 to 30,000 miles. Some newer models can go even longer, but either way, the filter needs to be replaced to ensure your engine is still reliable. You can also check the owner's manual or talk to a professional to determine how frequently the filter needs to be changed.

5. No Gas

It can be easy to run out of gas if you don't notice the light illuminate on your dashboard while driving around. There are times the engine isn't having any problems; you just don't have any gas left in the tank. Refilling the tank will quickly resolve this issue. A technician can also inspect the vehicle to determine if the gas indicator light is working correctly.
