Engine turns over but doesn't start

Question Description

I have a 1998 Buick Park Avenue, It was running for awhile till one night the starter when out. I replace the starter and drove it home. Now the engine won't start. To me it seems like it isn't getting any fuel, but yet it does have fuel pressure. Can you please give me a somewhat of an idea on what I should check for,

Thank you for your time in assisting me on this matter.



Final Answer

It could be a bad connection between you battery and the starter. Check all your battery connections and your fuses. See if you can get a new starter wire.

Or there could be a chance that your starter relay has gone out. Also check out for any ignition switch fault.
Please keep me updated as to what is the problem you have figured out. Hope my advise helps.
