Check the problem codes. And check the AIC (air idle control) if you have good fuel pressure. Maintenance is important, that is why manufactures spend millions of dollars to print that information, and to cover their butts also.Check your mileage and look at the maintenance due list. Good Luck!

It sounds as though your fuel pump has gone out. Problem is, these cars have a high pressure and low pressure fuel pump. High pressure for initial start and low pressure for just plain running. Sounds like your low pressure pump. You might check your fuel filters first though. As for spark, most likely prob is ECM or coil. I've never successfully gotten an OBD code from a none running vehicle.

Still using the 5w30 oil that the manufacturer recommends.?? If the engine is a "higher" mile engine you need stronger protection. Could also be a need for plugs & wires (mis-fires). When it comes to oil, the average mechanic cannot tell you what 5w30 means. 5 thousandths protection (hot) between mating surfaces (rods & bearings, push rods & lifters). 30 thousands protection (cold) between surfaces. If its an older engine, I recommend a higher viscosity oil. 10w40, for an engine 100,000 -200,000 miles.(the gap between surfaces has to be higher as it ages, right??) If you keep your cars running into the 200,000 - 275,000 mile range, I start to use a 20w50 oil. Try a thicker, higher viscosity oil.
