I was driving to work this morning. The car was running fine. I stopped a a stop sign. When I took off the car went about 20-30 feet. Made a popping noise and stalled out. I coasted to the shoulder put it in park and tried to start it. It turns over but doesn't fire. I looked under the hood didn't really see anything out of the ordinary. The temp gauge was a little high but nowhere near red lined. I know I have a cracked head but I put stop leak in it and its been holding fluid and not overheating. Any suggestions? I was wondering if maybe it could be the ignition control module?

First of all, sealers are temporary at best nad complicate the eventual repair with sludge.

You need fuel pressure, spark and compression to run. Check these and get back to us so we can further help you.
