Ford Engine Not Working

Many people assume the worst when their car fails to turn on when they put the key in the ignition. However, many factors come into play, making it necessary to understand why this can occur. With the help of a certified mechanic, you can get to the bottom of the issue and get back on the road.

An Empty Gas Tank

Many people forget to fill up their tanks and wait too long to add more gas, making it easy to become stranded. The engine won't start if there's no fuel in the car. This is easy to fix by adding more gas. You can also take the vehicle to a professional mechanic to determine if the gas indicator light is no longer reliable.

Dead Battery

Your car's battery plays an important part and needs to be in good shape to allow your engine to operate correctly. If the battery dies, your car won't work. Inspect the battery to determine if any corrosion is present. It can also die in extreme temperatures in harsh climates. The battery is easy to replace to ensure your car's operation is quickly restored.

Defective Starter

Defective starters are known to cause issues with the engine and can prevent them from turning on when you try to start the car. In most cases, the headlights still work, but the engine doesn't make a sound. In fact, you may hear a clicking noise when turning the key in the ignition.

Clogged Fuel Filters

Many drivers fail to regularly replace their fuel filters, which can cause clogs to quickly form, which directly impacts the engine's operation. You'll need to visit a mechanic to determine if this is the problem and plan to replace the filter every 20,000 to 30,000 miles, depending on the make and model you own. The owner's manual will also tell you how often the filter needs to be replaced.

Faulty Ignition

Ignitions can also develop issues. You may notice the battery still works well, but the engine doesn't make any sound or start. A mechanic can look under the hood and inspect the parts to determine if the ignition fails to ensure the necessary repairs are performed.
