    well my car did that after i left work at 2.... i came back for my car at 9 and it started right up!! Now last night (one day later) i started my car and it started shaking a little bit then just shut off on its own. I would start it again and it would shut off again.

If the timing belt is broken the engine will spin over very fast like there is no compression, which for the most part there isn't.

    This sounds like a fuel pump problem, when it won't start get the fuel prewss checked.

was the timing belt broken?

Are you sure the cams are aligned correctly?

Engine shut off, not getting any fire.


usually if no plugs are firing it would be a crank sensor but in the cam area you have a timing belt that keeps the timing between the crank and the cam if that has broken or stripped then it will not start and may have done some extensive damage to the engine.

This sounds like it is your ignition module not sending message o your computer letting know that the key is in the ignition and the car has been started. Replace the ignition module
