Dont try to start teh car because chances are ur number 4 cylinder could be full of coolant since its a common problem with them, just remove #4 plug and see in side the hole to see if its full of coolant. Try to get back to me

Check fuse no.5 30amp, park and neutral relay, starter and ignition switch.

Do this have helper hold key at start position and check for power at the park and neutral switch orange and black wire-Do you have it?

Is this vehicle cranking over and refusing to start

Do below and tell me what's going on.

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, 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, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

Load test the battery double check all connections and also test the following starter, starter relay, park and neutral switch and ignition switch. If you have a security system have that check too and comeback with some results before we continue
