1995 Chevrolet Corsica Q&A
1995 Chevrolet Corsica Question: Why does the car backfire and die out when I'm trying to crank it?
Need you to reword the symptoms; Does not turn over to us means the starter does not work. - ProfessorG
Cranking the engine comes from the time when a cranking tool was used to 'turn the engine over' which is now done by the starter motor. Starting the engine is what happens after the cranking process and the engine is running. To us it can be difficult to tell what is ment by "it wont turn over as many use this term to describe a 'no start' condition and others use to describe a no crank condition, which to us is the more accurate of the two! So a no crank means the starter is not working. A no start means the starter is cranking/turning the engine but it will not start/run. We see this quite often. - pushrod
