Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Toyota Rav4 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Is it possible for a car to need a tune-up so badly that it will not start? My car conked out while I was driving it, acting like it could not get fuel. A mobile mechanic said that it was getting fuel, but was not getting spark, and that it might be able to be solved with a tune up. If not, then it is the distributor.

Does this sound right? Can a car need a tuneup so badly that it won't start? Can replacing the sparkplugs, etc, fix the problem?

Thanks in advance

When was the last tune-up? -It will cause your problem-here's an example if the rotor and cap are corroded/excessive clearance exist between the two it will not fire up
