Went to the store came out would start but not fire. 4 days later was able to start and drive home; turned off tried to restart no fire. Changed the coil pack started right up turned off can not hear the relay kick on and will not fire. This is my only transportation I haven't had it but a couple months I really need to figure out what's wrong. I do not want to nickel and dime myself I can not afford that. Please someone help me. Desperate 2 kids and no vehicle makes it really hard especially when your staring right at one that just won't run.
