91 Mercury Tracer, last tune up was at least 3 years ago, just died at a stop light today, made a whining noise as I came to a stop, "check engine" lights came on, and it just died. I tried to turn it over but it wouldnt "catch". It doesnt make that "click click" noise that you get from a bad battery, and I just replaced the battery and alternator last Fall. It's got battery power, but it's just not turning over. What would cause it to just die like that? It's trying to start, it just feels like it's not firing on all four.
