The elementary checks

Before checks be convinced that the car is filled with fuel enough. If the car is equipped with system of coding of start of the engine (immobilizer), start the engine other keys from a set. If the engine is started, the reason is ignition key breakage. Check a key in car-care center service. If by means of other keys to start the engine it is not possible, address in car-care center service as refusal of anticreeping system is possible.

If the starter does not rotate the engine, or rotates poorly

1. Check a condition of plugs of power cables, reliability of their fastening.

2. If a condition of plugs satisfactory, include internal lighting. If lamps do not burn, or become dim (or die away) at starter inclusion, the battery is discharged. In this case start the engine from the additional battery or if the car is equipped with a manual transmission and there is no catalytic converter, the engine is allowed to be started car pushing. To start the diesel engine pushing at strongly discharged battery as a rule it is not possible.

3. If lamps do not die away, but the engine is not started, adjustment of the engine or repair is necessary. In this case address in car-care center service for the qualified help.

The starter rotates the engine with normal speed, but the engine is not started

1. Be convinced of reliability of fastening of all demountable connections of conducting (especially sockets on the distributor and fastening of wires to spark plugs).

2. If connections in a satisfactory condition, a cause of failure at start-up is reenrichment of a mix and filling of cylinders with gasoline. In this case be guided by the following item.

Engine start in case of overflow of cylinders by gasoline

In default at start-up cylinders of the engine can be overflowed with gasoline because of repetition of unsuccessful attempts of start-up.
