I was driving and all of a sudden my car started sputtering like I was out of gas. I put my foot to the floor on the gas pedal and went nowhere. It finaly let me move a few feet, sputtered again and died. I tried starting it again, but it would not turn over.

Do you know what it might be? I haven't a clue.

Thanks for any help or suggestions you may have.

You need three things for an engine to run, spark, fuel and compression.

I would check spark first, if none, then ignition module or camshaft/crankshaft sensor.

If spark, then check fuel pressure with a mechanical gauge.

If the car will not turn over (will not rotate) then check battery and charging system.

If the engine rotates but will not start then check items above.
