I was driving home and car just shut off. I changed the distributor ans spark plugs with wires and now it acts like in wants to start but won't. This is the first time ever to happen.

    Need more info. Try putting some gas in the tank as you could be getting a false reading from a faulty fuel level sender. Otherwise, this could be a fuel pump or other fuel delivery problem.

    What are you missing- fuel or spark? Timing belt OK? visually inspect coil for arcing.Did you have to have it towed home or did it re-start after sitting for a while?
