My car has a reoccuring problem where when I turn on the ignition it cranks but doesn’t start. This happens in all four seasons so it’s not just when the weather is cold. I’ve had 3 auto shops (including a Mazda dealership) diagnose it as a bad fuel pump, so I had the fuel pump and EGR valve replaced last year. When the issues started again after a few months the fuel pump was changed again under the warranty. I have also changed the battery twice in the last year.
Now the check engine light and powering steering fluid light is on. My car will crank, but it’s like the engine won’t catch. Starter issue? I had triple A come out and test the battery and they said it wasn’t a battery issue. I also had him try to read codes on my car, but he said it kept saying error on his machine. So I purchased my own car reader, and when I try to test it also says “Error” no codes! I’m not sure what’s going on with this car. No one seems to know what’s really wrong with it, and I want to sell this car but the starting issue has me worried I won’t get any money for it. I just want to figure out what’s wrong with it. If the repair costs are thousands of dollars I won’t bother fixing it. Any help is appreciated.
