My name is Ryan. I need some advice on why my car won't start. I drove the car for about ten miles and the car started making a clicking sound. I cut off and it didn't want to start back up. We replaced the starter thinking it was the problem, but no dice. I need some advice ... If I need to add more information just let me know. I appreciate any advice.
if it is clicking while the engine is running and there is no check engine light then the flywheel could be cracking, had that happen on a buddys trailblazer, searched all over for the noise and finally we pulled off the shield and saw the crack starting in the flexplate.
pull the codes and see if there are any pending (not enough to turn the light on but recognized by the ecu)
The check engine light did come a day before it happened. I was wondering if I have a bad ground connection somewhere. Where are the ground connections? Also, we but a brand new starter on it and it turn over a little make a sound I'm not familiar with ... Before there problems started, my car won't start up perfect with no problems at all. What is the worst case scenario?
could be the switch or the PATS acting up, maybe fuel pump...worst case? A new ECU or hours of labor trying to find the short...sometimes the dealer is the best way to deal with these strange issues since they have the computers that can read what is going on
I wanted to include the battery is good and the starter. This is the crazy part: We tried push starting thlde car at least 10 time, and didn't get it started at all. I hope this additional information helps.
