I replaced my car battery because the old one was dead. I attempted to start the car but it won't start, it's turning over as usual but doesn't start. What would cause the car to turn over, but not start please help?

Welcome to 2CarPros.

If the starter works but it won't start, it could be a few things. First, take a look through this link. It discusses the most common causes of a crank no start condition.

Specifically, you should check to see if there is spark and fuel to the engine. Here are a couple links that you may find helpful:

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
