WHY WON’T MY CAR START AFTER AN OIL CHANGE
OIL IS WHAT KEEPS THE ENGINE’S MOVING PARTS COOL AND LUBRICATED. IT NEEDS TO BE CLEAN TO PROPERLY DO ITS JOB, SO REGULAR OIL CHANGES NEAR NORTH ANDOVER, PEABODY, OR DANVERS IS VITAL.
HOWEVER, THERE MAY BE INSTANCES WHEN YOUR CAR WON’T START AFTER AN OIL CHANGE. THERE COULD BE DIFFERENT REASONS WHY THIS IS HAPPENING. WE’LL TELL YOU SOME OF THOSE BELOW, ALONG WITH HOW YOU COULD RESOLVE THE ISSUE TODAY.
Why Won’t My Car Start After an Oil Change
- Failing fuel pump
- Clogged fuel filter
- Issues with starter
- Too much oil
- Bad battery
1. FAILING FUEL PUMP
2. CLOGGED FUEL FILTER
The fuel filter helps prevent dirt and debris from getting inside the fuel line. If the filter gets clogged, then the car won’t start. This should be changed after every oil change. However, your car may need a fuel filter replacement every 12,000 miles, after an oil change is needed. Still, if you think the filter is clogged, then bring the car to a technician to take a look at it.
3. ISSUES WITH THE STARTER
4. TOO MUCH OIL
An oil reservoir is designed to hold a bit of extra oil for two main reasons. One is to compensate for fluid expansion in warmer climates. The other reason is to help prevent the engine from getting damaged.
5. BAD BATTERY
