You can have someone try to start it while you test the voltage (touch the probe to the ...

I'm fairly confident that is the issue, based on the description. If they are the universal clamp together type, unbolt those and clean that as well. All the pieces have to ...

Also most later model cars have a (Low) pressure safety threshold. (ie) if the oil sensor is cooked and does not register enough oil pressure at turn over' The car will never start. This is easy to see on a functioning ...
