my car has been sitting in the drive not working for close to one and a half years with no codes being thrown out. and after watching your video I took my engine apart and looked at everything it has no sludge and no bad timing everything worked. but now after taking away the MAF sensor it started and ran as it did the day before it didn't. and gotta say thanks for the information of your vids.
+Hilario Rodriguez hell no unless you got another 2 or 3 grand to fix shit going out. Those cars aren't as bulletproof as some would say and to top it off their not a car brand thats supported much by aftermarket car parts companies so alot of trips to the dealership for certain parts for those cars means expensive to repair....
Help please:) Hi Chris. Just found your YouTube site. Thank you for awesome content
Question but first I have had horrible experience with Buick rendezvous 2003. So many repairs 6k worth in past 3 years. Heads re-done and other repairs
My current problem crank seems good but no start. Took it in they replaced foil filter fuel pump I got it back running rough but running
4 days later same symptoms no start but cranks. Boss said maybe bad battery. Tried a jump start - no luck. Back at shop and I'm so worried I'll have similar experience as the neighbor of yours. New parts mechanic repair bills but a faulty running car.
I owe my boss money for last fix 5 days ago. I assume I can eliminate alternator battery and starter, timing - belt/chain? Can I illuminate any other things from my quick description. Like ecm (I think that's computer - pcm/ecm) sparkplug and coil? Any help so appriciate. Any linked video aswell greatly appriciated
Big o tire repair shop. If not a fuel issue (ie under repair warranty) they worked on should I take it to a mechanic that specializes in engine repairs or have a tire/other-stuff repair it.
HELP PLEASE ................ Hi. I have this crank but not start problem with my motorcycle. It starts up if I push it on 2nd gear and let go the clutch. . Checked everything except timing and compression... what do you think it could be sir.?????? Yamaha r1 2012
Who the hell dislikes these videos? Chris has the absolute best car fixing tutorials: always correct and informed, those amazingly clear explanations (the dude has a natural talent for teaching) and, on top of that, his videos are always interesting, well-paced, energetic and - I dare say - somewhat uplifting.
Off topic question, I seen that you used the fogging oil to lube up piston which is good. But do you think it would have been better to change the oil first since it sat for 4 years or did you not do that because you wanted to make sure it was fixable before investing the oil and filter into it? Do you think there's any harm in starting a vehicle with old oil and what did you do to remove all that gunk and sludge out?
My Subaru Outback H6 2001 had a similar issue. Changed the fuel pump and fuel filter along with injectors . As well some of the lines which were old. Car has 230k runs with no issues after that fix. Preventative maintenance is key to longevity of the life towards the engine.
Me and my dad got a 2.0 abf engine from a 1999 seat ibiza. The car had been sitting close to 3 years and when we put a new battery to it, it started up and idled like a dream. So we bought the car for the engine and later on when we were removing it to put it in our 1991 mk2 golf (check channel) we found that it had started with a cracked manifold, no air flow sensor and was being held in place by a block of wood. With all these problems it still idled better than our golf. We still haven't put it in but we are in the middle of a full rebuild and the magic bhp is 200 (small story I thought I would tell since this reminded me of it)
ima guess spark plugs... compression... fuel pump....battery... shit its one of thems haha crazy was gunna say timing but on my 94 celica any probs with the belt and the car just shutdown.. nice video tho i do not miss working on my car.
This helped I wasn't thinking timing belt . iwas thinking starter solenoid. Do you have a tutorial for a 2006 Pacifica? It was sitting.i started it up there was a pop but it ran( let run for 10 min) then I went back 7days to start it up again and getting nail in blender sound but not catching. Any thoughts?
Hes gonna sell that to a 16 yr old who's gonna slap a wing and $20 rims on it and call it his "racecar". Domt forget the extra few horsies from the sickers. May cut the coils to slam it down. Gotta have it dirt nasty low.
Im going to try all of these tomorrow. My girlfriend and I just bought a 99 mustang and it cranks but wont start. Havent been able to do much with it yet but tomorrow ill hopefully get it started. Great video! Thanks for all the help!

Hey Chris I have a 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer gts 2.4l. I live in nyc. Long story short, one day I wake up 4am it’s freezing out I go to start my car and it cranks but no start and no codes. Took it to a mechanic and he can’t figure it out. Got the fuel pump replaced, crankshaft position sensor, ignition coil packs, coolant sensor and the battery. Still not working when it’s cold. But it will start up when it’s 30 degrees. If you have any idea plz lmk. Or need more info I can provide a answer about the car.
Hello, my Citroen had a hard time starting and then it started and after driving for a couple hundred meters, the engine shut off and it cranks but won't start. The local mechanic says fixing it would be very expensive, and offers me to throw it out. I suspect it might be a timing belt. When trying to start, I see very little white smoke coming from the exhaust pipe , and it makes a specific rhytmic sound like one louder and then 4 softer tries and then one harder again. Should I try checking the timing belt or throw it out?
Very informative video. Thanks Chris. All those thumb downs, must be from mechanics that are mad because you are showing people the ease at which a problem with a modern engine can be diagnosed a majority of the time. FYI to people, change your oil and use synthetic if you can afford it. I just sold my 2004 Camry with 385,000 miles on it. It still ran great, and no sludge (used Mobile 1 since it was new).
I just got a 93 camry under similar circumstances. Went through the same stuff, but still watched the video from start to finish. By the way, I replaced the fuel pump before finding the snapped timing belt (you don't always hear the hum! wish I had cracked the fuel line loose like in the vid) My best free car ever!! Anyway, great video.
Very interesting video learned some thing there! Unbelivable garage he took it to,I would not have paid them for any parts I did not use if car still not running,and asked for a price to fix before going ahead. People that do not understand about cars should always belong to roadside repair motoring organisation then they wil know exactly what the fault is before it is towed and ask for price to fix that fault before car touched by garage.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
