My car shut off while I was driving up hill to my house. It has power still just wont turn on. The weird thing is it blew a 10v fuse under the hood. We replaced the fuse and it started and then blew it again and died. Now it just wont start.
We have replaced the ignition module cap and plugs, distributor, coil, brain box. We can here the fule pump turn on. Its something electrical and we cant find the relays for it.

Any ideas????

    If you know you have SPARK (assuming proper timing , chain-okay) , and you know you are GETTING FUEL (checked pressure , not just noise from pump) then the only thing you have left is AIR> TEST for input signal and ALL hoses hooked up and no damage , to MASS AIR FLOW METER. If unsure , have diagnosed by a shop , would have saved a lot of money. Good luck.
