1998 Buick Regal Question: How do i tell if my fuel injection are open and will that cause the car not star
Answer #1pushrod November 08, 2013, 14:37Master
Cranking is the same thing as turning over! You mean it will crank (turn over) but will not start (run)?? Or do you mean it does nothing at all?? Was this problem caused by your work? Or was it there before? Talk to me!!!

Now we may be getting somewhere!! There is a crankshaft sensor behind the crank pulley that is easily damaged, when the belt come off it most likely has done just that! That needs to be checked out first thing. Let me know what you find.

Even if its the front belt that came off could it still be crankshaft senor please help gotta get my car started and running

Read my last reply again, that is all i can tell you! There is only one crankshaft pulley and this sensor is behind it. Get some help because this is not a diy repair!! Maybe search youtube for a video. But don't let just any joe blow work on your car, you tried that! Get some real help.

No way i can argue with a MECHANIC that can look at and test your no start problem! Funny how you never mentioned a mechanic before! That's where it should have been in the first place! How much money have you saved now by getting a friend to work on your car?
Good luck with it!
