Volvo Engine Not Working

You may maintain your car and provide a high level of care to it, but it can still fail to turn on when you try to start the engine. Instead of panicking, it's important to be aware of some of the most common causes of this type of issue. Here are a few reasons your car may not start when you try to turn the key in the ignition.

Clogged Fuel Filter

The fuel filter that is currently in place can develop a few clogs when it's exceeded its lifespan. If you haven't replaced the fuel filter after 20,000 to 30,000 miles, then this may be why your engine won't start. If your car is a newer model, it likely can go a bit longer before the filter has to be replaced because the vehicle has more advanced technology than older cars.

Bad Starter

Your engine won't start if your starter isn't in good condition. This is considered to be a motor that connects to the battery that is in place. It's responsible for making the engine start each time you turn on the ignition. If the starter is bad, you'll hear a clicking noise when you try to start the engine.

Dead Battery

Dead batteries are often the cause of an engine not starting. When batteries are exposed to extremely cold or hot temperatures, they're prone to dying. One of the main signs the battery is failing is if the lights in your cabin start to go dim as you drive. A technician can test the battery to determine if it needs to be replaced.

No Gas

Your car relies on gas and won't start if you forgot to fill the tank up. Your gas light indicator may also be inaccurate and can show you that you have more gas than you think. Adding more gas to the tank can allow the engine to start operating again. If this doesn't work, you can reach out to a certified technician to uncover the problem and get a proper diagnosis.

Faulty Ignition

You may notice your car battery is working, but the engine still doesn't start. This may be due to a faulty ignition switch. Test out the headlights to determine if they're working correctly. A professional can inspect the parts and perform the repairs you need.
