I have a 1996 Mitsushi Eclipse 2.0 Liter that shut down as I was coming to a stop off the freeway. It was smoking and smelled like burning rubber and it wouldnt start back up. After looking under the hood I noticed that one of the fans was unplugged. I had it towed home. Now when I try to start it, it rotates but will not start. What could be the problem and steps to take. Please help, Thanks

If your engine cranks but won't start, you have with an ignition problem or a fuel problem. Check to see if you have a snapping blue spark when you ground a plug wire to the block and turn over engine as well as get a fuel pressure reading using a gauge connected at the fuel rail.
