Sounds like your fuel pump may have gone out. You can test this with a fuel pressure gauge that can be purchased at any auto parts store. The port to hook it up to is located on the fuel lines going to the fuel injectors on or close to the engine. This port kinda looks like a larger version of a valve stem on a tire. With the key on, test the pressure, if it is extrememly low or at zero your fuel pump will need to be replaced.

Could be gas related, could be ignition spark related. you will have to troubleshoot to find if spark is at plugs in the right time and sequence. also, you will need to know if you are getting fuel to your cylinders. Can't help anymore without being there first hand.

Sounds like the engine is toast.
The warning light means the oil pressure has dropped below 10psi which can mean the engine is low on oil, or that something has happened to the oil pump or other components.
The crank bearings may be seized from lack of oil.
See if you can turn the crank by turning the alternator pulley.

The first thing is to check the timing belt, remove the distributor cap and crank the engine, if the rotor doesn't turn the timing belt is broken, unlike some engines on this engine there is no mechanical damage if the belt breaks.

While drviing down freeway today the 2.5 ltr engine died and will crank but will not start. one month ago it was backfireing in intake and dieing on freeway and i thought i had bad gasoline it fixit


you need three main conponents for the engine to run,fuel,spark,compression . first have someone to crank the motor and put the spark plug lead of the plug and hold it near the block and if there is spark it will jump a inch or so, check the fuel filter , hold the fuel line clear of electirical and heat, crank engine , fuel will flow, when engine is running but running rough as a miss fire disconnect plug lead one at a time till you find missing cylinder

Does engine still crank? If so you have to check for Fuel, spark, compression. when your engine quit ..odds are good you lost one of these. check for fuel since modern electric fuel pumps stop working without any warning.You should be able to hear the pump momentarily when you first turn the key to "ON" If good check for spark, modern "coil pack" spark systems have a few weak links. if engine cranks and you have spark and you don't know how to check for fuel spray some starting fluid in your air inlet and see if it will start momentarily
