Car stalled when idling in the driveway, was unable to get the car to restart. The following things have been checked out: *New plugs, good spark from coil pack *New fuel filter *Fuel pump runs and pushes appreciable volume of fuel through filter (checked by turning key on and running gas into an open container) *Tried cranking the engine w/ spark wires disconnected and immediately pulled spark plug to check if plug was wetted with fuel. It was not (possible that no fuel is getting to piston?) *Tried replacing fuel pressure regulator, that had no effect. Thanks in advance! Peter

CAR DIED WHILE @ DR APPT. TOWED IT HOME. HAVE REPLACED IGNITION RELAY SWITCH AND IGNITION. STILL REFUSES TO START. SUGGESTIONS? CAR EQUIPPED WITH ANTI-THEFT.
Security light blinks nonstop. I heard you can reset it by putting your key in for 10 minutes? Do I have to have the key in the on position?
This morning I tried to start the car and it made that clicking sound but the engine won't turn over. Four hours later I tried again no clicking sound and engine still won't turn over.
My car will not start and I have bypassed the main security system and changed the fuel filter,...
