1998 Dodge Avenger Question: 98 avenger cut off while driving now it will turn over but won't start?

 

Question

Visitor, V6, Chesterfield, VA, December 24, 2010, 06:44

My son was driving his 98 Avenger at 45 mph when it cut off. Now when you try to start it the engine will turn over but won't start. My mechanic has checked the fuel pump, changed the coil, cam shaft sensor, changed the computer, and checked for loose wires and he is been left scratching his head. Also new timing belt was installed a year ago. Looking for anyone who has any ideas what might be the cause the problem. Thanks

    Did the timing belt break? Was it replaced as per the maintenance schedule? If the timing belt did break you most likely have other internal problems as this is an interference engine.

    The timing belt was ok-it was replaced less than 5000 miles ago.
