I'm in the process of buying this car I got a really good deal on it, and so far I know it was rear ended recently the previous owner had it taken to to get the damaged body fixed but when he got it back, they started it but didnt drive it the next morning they went to go start it and it would crank but not start? We were able to start it with a can of starting fluid also and the car would start then after a short period cut back off. We went ahead an changed the fuel filer but still having the same problem ?
