2007 chevy cobalt cranks but wont start
Ok my gf car is a 2007 chevy cobalt the car would
start jus fine and everything yesterday but goin
down the road seemed a lil sluggish like it didnt
have the take off power it usually did.. well this
mornin she goes to start it an it cranks but wont
start an when u turn the key it cuts the power to
the lights than when u let off the key they come
back on.. the radio an everything on the inside
works just the car itself wont start
You would need to check and see if its getting fuel. If you turn key on (no crank) can you hear fuel pump turn on? If not you can try tapping fuel tank where pump is with a rubber mallet and see if pump starts to work. BUT it could be a number of things, Check engine light on? If so codes need to be diagnosed. Sure it has gas? GM is notorious for inaccurate fuel gauges.
Its getting fuel i can smell fuel when trying to crank it over.. the check engine light has been on for over a yr now my gf said it was on b4 we met. I was told by a few sources that it sounds like the timing chain has gone out cause those cars are known for that the car hasnt had any major repairs since she bought it
Timing chain is a possibility. If its been sending you messages for over a year its time you had it scanned to find out what its telling you. That will probably lead you to the source of the problem.
