Re: 2002 SS mystery problem, won't crank?
If they've replaced oxygen sensors then I suspect it's cranking or your mechanic suckered you. Think of old cars that had cranks. If it cranks it turns over, and over, and over, but won't start.
Here is a no-crank scenario. My 2002 had a delco battery in it. The battery said 72 month AC Delco on it. Just a few months after the OEM warranty ran out, my 72 month battery started leaking around the positive side-post. Needless to say it made a mess of my power cable, frame and other stuff. ... and so much for 72 months, they would only cover it under the OEM warranty.
Fast forward to a month ago. I noticed my idle speed was surging one day on my way home from work. I now realize it was going through a relearn proceedure, but the car ran great otherwise. I got home, shut it off and noticed the radio didn't keep playing like normal. I went to start it and nothing.
That positive cable had corrosion around it (though not fuzzy green) and developed bad connection. I cleaned up the connection and it fixed it right up.
