Changed egr valve vac Modulator and ox senors. I even changed gas cap.
My kid ran the car out of gas, we pushed it to the gas station and refueled it, and now it just turns over, sounds like it wants to start, but will not engage. Could the computer need to be reset, or could it be the starter?
The key will not turn when you put it in, we tried everything turning the steering wheel, wigging the key back and fourth. This happen once before but we got it started but this time it wont.
