CHEVROLET IMPALA BATTERY PROBLEM

2004 Chevrolet Impala • 120,000 miles

Would a bad timimg belt cause a car not to start?
A couple months ago I had to buy a new battery b/c my old one was bad. I had a Duralast battery but I downgraded to a much smaller battery. A week ago my car didnt want to start. I had a friend come look at it, and he said my battery could be dead and I had a bad timing belt. Now, that we got the battery charged the radio and stuff will come on but the car wont crank it sound like its about to start but it wont catch.

You have no timing belt.

Bad move on the battery, you can upgrade but never downgrade.

As far as starting, check fuel pressure
