i think the pcv valve is broke, would that prevent car from starting. Also trying to find a picture that points out where the pcv valve is so i can make sure that is what it is that is broken.

yeah, a recactangly thing with a couple of nipples- what is this not doin? puffin?

Okay, it's not starting. now we're getting somewhere. The three basics, air, fuel, spark...and timing, but you need to make sure that your plugs are sparking. You could pull a plug, have an assistant turn the key and not the blue flame, turn the motor off. When you had the plug out, what was the condition of the electrode, was it white, black, oily caked with goo? this would let us know how the motor was behaving. Now air is controlled by computer, so you'd have some CEL (check engine light) codes to answer to, but if you say no, it's a matter of perfomance, bad gas? choked air filter?...how you came up with pcv is a mystery, now if you'd say EGR, those nasty letters, we'd have something or Intake measurement, or CO2 sensor...we'd know whatinahell to do about it!

turns over okay, not dead battery?
