It was going down 65 full tank of gas and just shut off and has not started since. We have replaced the fuel pump, and camshaft sensor and 3 out of 4 o2 sensors and still it turns over but does not fire? Help please.
Do you
have the same problem?

This sounds like a crankshaft angle sensor has gone out. When you turn the key to the on position without cranking the engine over can you hear the fuel pump run in the tank for 5 seconds?

Here is how to change out the crankshaft sensor:

Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Well, before we changed the fuel pump a little, but after we changed it not at all.

We called a shop and they came and got it today. I was just trying to fix it without having to pay much more than what we have put in it.
