Ive already change the following parts: - Fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel relay, ignition coil, spark plugs, wires, camshaft pos sensor, crankshaft pos sensor, timing belt. After I changed the timing belt, I no longer get any codes. Car has fully charged battery but only cranks for a couple seconds and then done. It sounds like the engine is struggling to turn over.
