If it is cranking fine but not firing then you have a fuel problem. Maybe the fuel pump, filter, injectors...etc.

SOURCE: Flat battery

Get a set of jumper cables. Positive side of the battery goes to the + side or red. and negative goes to - or black. Do the same on the other car. let it charge for awhile before attempting to start

Or the fuel pump relay in the trunk is shot. Replace the holder too if you have the time.

check the oil viscosity,it might be too old(driven for toomany miles)..

if thats not ityou might need to get the oil preasure lubricating pump checked,and id suggest you do it fast or theres a lot of engine wear and tear.

Underneath the pollen filter housing under the bonnet the ECM (engine control module) is located,If any of the drains are blocked you could be getting water into the ECM....Just a thought...Hope this helps

Sounds like you have a bad heater core. If steam is on the interior you may want to look for moisture around the floor at the firewall.
