Car had been having loss of power with EGR code registering. Now it will not start and I have replaced the EGR sensor. Also replaced the spark plugs, coils, crank sensor, and fuel pump and it has a good alternator.
Do you
have the same problem?

Try a security system reset. Then if still not starting have a mechanic scan for codes. See picture.

Hello DUSTY KRUEGER STRAUCH,

I am sending you a link that if you decide to conduct the scan yourself will be of help to you. This link features an article with written step by step instructions and pictures explaining how to do the scan yourself, also I have included a link to our YouTube channel with a how to video on code scanning.
This is applicable even if your check engine light is not on.

Most scanners are inexpensive to purchase, you can purchase one online from sites like Amazon.com

I have done the security reset and got nothing. Spayed some starting fluid in and it started up. My fuel line is stopped up. Thanks for the information though.

If line is plugged then it will never start. You will have to find out where it is plugged, maybe a hose has collapsed inside. Plugged fuel filter etc. Also, check return lines as they will cause same thing.
