Just for future reference. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Also, check for applicable trouble codes. An intermittent rpm signal can drive you crazy. This message is for you, not your mechanic, I'm sure he has already checked all this.
