Car can crank normally but won't start.

The car sputtered till it stopped all together. It will turnover no problem but will not crank. I checked fuses but i think it is the fuel pump.

i felt like my car fell an made horrible noise when in gear to drive

its a transmission part

The TCS light has come on like this for almost 2 years.I pull over turn car off it goes off it was ok for a long time. Now I just had Transmission replaced and the light won't go off at all now. Can this do further damage to my car. I keep returning my car to Amco to fix the transmission it keeps failing on me could it be the TCS they told me to go back to dealership so have a diagnostic scheduled today but wants some questions answered before I get hit with another monster bill.

when it reaches 3000 rpm it studders up and down

In leaving the dealership following the 60,000 service, my '06 Kia Amanti seemed out of timing and has not run smoothly since that time. Mechanics have taken it apart, checked everything and now feel it may be the tensioner. My feeling is it drove smoothly when I brought it in, but has been jerky, not smooth, since the service.

The engine has a pinging, at time it sounds like tiny bells ringing. It is always while the cars is in drive. And It can be heard at crawling low speed but also once I accelerate. Once the engine is warmed up (at time 1/2 hours), it appears to diminish. I don't hear it while in park idling.

The ABS warning light stay on most of time while driving.
It comes after the car is started. Other times it does not come on after the car started and stays off. However, more often that not it stays on.

Why does the local Honda Dealer tell me they can't find this recall when typing in my vin number? I found it on your sight and Highway safety site, How can I get my car rpaired under this recall since I haven't been able to drive since it broke and locked steering column up in middle of highway.I have been trying for ten months now to get dealer to deal with my concern and they keep passing the buck.

When should the timing belt be replaced, and is the engine design 'interference', valve to piston?
