Great Wall V240 2010: Why won't my engine start?

Asked by Maria

My 2010 Great Wall V240 was going great until last month when it broke down on the road and the engine wouldn't start. I left the car parked on the side of the road for 4 to 6 hours and went back to it and the engine started again. I took it to a mechanic and they said it was the starter motor, so I had that fixed. The same day I was driving home from the mechanic and it broke down again and wasn't able to start engine. So again left the car on the side of the road until the next morning I went to pick it up and it started fine. This time I took to another mechanic who used his computer and found that some fuses were exploded so he had them fixed. It was running good for two weeks and then the problem happened again. Sometimes the engine doesn't start but the light, and radio still works, but the engine is not running. What could the problem be?

It could be that the engine is getting hot, and leaving it for a period gives it time to cool down. Have the cooling system, thermostat, electric fan all checked. It might be worthwhile having a compression test done to see if it’s leaking head gasket.
