2000 Oldsmobile silhouette won't start


Asked by vern33 Jan 25, 2016 at 10:22 PM about the 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette 4 Dr GL Passenger Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a 2000 Oldsmobile silhouette from a trusted person. Drove it home
about an hour or so, ran great, no problems, started it next day, died first time
but started next time. Two days later, tried to start it but it just clicked and tried
to fire, called friend for a boost! Boosted 20 minutes, but still wouldn't start.
Inside lights worked, clock worked too. Kept trying to boost, with their car
reeved up, the van misfired, but would not start,

Just bought a battery today, haven't put it in yet, it is very cold right now, would a battery cause it to back fire from all the cranking?
