Any engine that cranks but wont start, you verify spark, fuel, compression , timing. in that order,( if and as) necessary, to define the nature of the no start before diasassembly. Identify the system, inspect those components, their connectors, system prechecks, it's called. saves time. Takes minutes, saves hours.

Does it fire the spark plugs?

Ran out of daylight today but what happened was I was driving to work slowed down to turn car stalled put in neutral and it cracked right up. Then drove to work it ran fine but engine light came on. Then I parked at work came out later it tried to start like the was a little gas then just turns over. No codes are given what is the next step check each coil pack or fuses and relays.

Engine light was lit, so you need to read the codes in continuous memory, not just the hard fault. Car stalls but restarts. after sitting till cold, car starts then stalls, then just cranks but wont start. This sounds like need to verify spark while it's acting up because no spark can cancel fuel but if you lose fuel, There still would be spark. Try running pinpoint tests after you get the code from that engine light you had. Then basic no start diagnosis. without the book or the tech, or the test equipment present, my swammy powers are suggesting to me that AAA is more fun than A.A.
