car was running fine. car shut off while driving. now it just cranks but doesnt start

2 Answers

I would check the fuel pump.. try banging on the bottom of the tank with a rubber mallet while trying to start. The pump is under the back seat, real easy to get to.

If that does not work, get a helper to spray a squirt of starting fluid in the intake (not too much) and if it starts that tells you it is indeed a fuel supply problem...maybe pump like Jeff says. If it still does not start , (it will only run a few seconds if it does), then it's an electrical problem
