I drove my car around, made two stops. Turned the car off both times. When I got back in it the second time it wouldn't start. Turns over just fine. No battery problem it's brand new. Sounds like the fuel pump is working but can't be exactly sure yet. Thanks for any information.

Hi,

Chances are either you lost spark to the ignition or the fuel pump (although you hear it) has failed. Here are a few links to help you:

If that is of no help, you will need to check for spark and fuel to the engine. Here are links showing how that is done:

Here are a few general links you may find helpful when testing:

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions. Additionally, let me know if when cranking the engine if it sounds the same as it always has.

Take care,
Joe
