Earlier this week my car stopped accelerating while driving so I stopped the vehicle, turned it off and tried to start it again. It worked that time but after getting home the car would not turn back on. A new battery and O2 sensors have been put in since the issue has occurred, but before that it also got a new fuel pump and new fuel injectors. Please help?

Hi,

In most cases, a crank no start is either an ignition-related issue or fuel related issue. Also, a failed timing belt can also cause this.

Does the engine sound normal when cranking it? If you feel it sounds differently, record it cranking and upload it for me to hear. It could be a timing issue and normally I can tell by listening to it.

If there is no change in cranking, here is what I need you to try. First, 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, then suspect an ignition-related issue.

At that point, I will need you to check for spark to the plugs.

Here is a link that explains how that is done:

Let me know what you find and if you can record it, please do so.

Take care and Happy Thanksgiving.
