The vehicle just shut off on me while I was driving completely, and when I pulled over it would crank but not start. I had the DIC replaced a month ago, abs module, and just now had a new fuel pump installed today. I had to get the car jumped since it was sitting so long so sure enough even with the new fuel pump it wouldn't start.

cranks wont start fire. replaced the crank position sensor. checked the direct ignition packs, they are ok. thinking it is the timing belt. dealer wants $750.00 to replace and install timing belt and water pump.
