Most of the time, starting your vehicle is simple. Key goes in, key gets turned, engine turns over, and off you go. But what happens when that process goes awry? What should you do if the engine doesn’t turn over?
Clicking usually indicates a dead battery. Leaving the lights on after the car is stopped, as well as good old-fashioned time can run out this vital part. Keeping a set of jumper cables and a cheat sheet in your vehicle’s trunk or storage area is the first step toward helping yourself or a fellow traveler out of this jam. This guide from Via, the AAA magazine, and this diagram from the auto section of dummies.com are both detailed resources.
Silence could mean the battery’s cable connections have corroded past usefulness. If the car starts after you wedge a screwdriver (be sure the handle is non-conductive!) between the connector and terminal post, then your cables may need to be cleaned or replaced.
Dying after it starts is a serious problem, either with your fuel injector or the carburetor (whichever your vehicle has). If you have a carburetor, check the choke to be sure it’s opening and closing. If you have a fuel injector, take your car in for service immediately.
The vehicle cranks but won’t engage could indicate a fuel or spark plug problem. Check that fuel is reaching your engine and that your spark plugs are good.
Not starting on rainy days could mean engine trouble every day in an Oregon winter. If this is happening to you, check your distributor cap for moisture. Using a clean solvent – not gasoline, as it’s flammable and so are its fumes – turn the cap upside down, spray the solvent inside, and then dry it as best you can with a lint-free cloth.

The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid has erased any doubt that an American car company can offer an affordable, well-built sedan. This was the conclusion of Motor Trend‘s editors after one year of access to the Fusion in their famous fleet.
Besides the Ford’s excellent design and handling, the Fusion scored major points for requiring nothing more than a few standard oil changes and tire rotations during the year. Besides its low maintenance cost, the Fusion hybrid reduces 3,504 pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Combine this with its astonishing range and gas mileage, and you have a all around winner in the sedan class.
[W]hat impressed just about everybody was that it’s simply an honest, affordable, well-constructed sedan. The thing the experts said American car companies weren’t supposed to be capable of anymore. – Kim Reynolds Motor Trend Magazine
