Car cut off while driving and won't start. It will turn over. Replaced the fuel filter, crank shaft position sensor, and coil packs. I don't know where to turn from here. Does anyone know what the problem might be.
Do you

Hi,

The first thing we need to do is determine which circuit is causing the issue. Here is what I want you to try. See if the engine starts if you use starting fluid. If it does and then stalls, we know it is a fuel-related issue. If there is no change, I need you to check for spark to the plugs. Here is a link that explains how that is done:

Try this and let me know what you find. Also, if it is possible in any way, record the engine cranking and upload it for me to hear. I want to make sure there isn't a timing issue.

I will watch for your reply.

Take care,

Joe
