Driving down freeway loss power, blew a freeze plug, fuse box connectors burn. Replace fuse box and partial harness. And replace freeze plug. Car has full crank but still won't start. Timing belt is good. Replaced spark plugs. Gave it a couple of cranks spark plugs smell like gas. Battery is brand new. Check computer box lights don't flicker or go all crazy.
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
