My car just up and died on me while I was driving it and now it will not start it will turn over but not start. I ask some about it and they said the start sensor is bad where is that exactly. They told me on the bell housing well I found it and I took the bolt out to remove it and there were some resentence to it. So please please help me. Thank you.

Do below to determine if its fuel or spark problem then comeback

Get a starting fluid or ether and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not 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
