First check coils and battery charge. You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Stalls, then engine shuts down...


One thing it could be is the fuel filter. It's about the only thing that won't cause an engine light to come on.

These vehicles are known for faulty antitheft systems. When they start to fail, the car turns off the fuel injectors as a theft deterrent. Next time it stalls, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, this link will help you.

Car stalled, won't start.


This engine is fully computer controlled, so what you need to do is have that control module (PCM) scanned for fault codes, that is the first step, other issues like engine failure can not be ruled out either.

Stalling, missing, hesitating, T/C won't work


Replace plugs and wires, especially if the missing is worse at high throttle, and definitely if the check engine light *blinks*. The plugs might make it to 100k miles on this engine, but the spark plug boots can carbon track before then.

Car wont start


At first, I thought 'coil pack'. But you said it tried to start. So that's out. You might check that you're getting spark just to be thorough.

Did it ever start again after the stall on the interstate?

If not, I'm leaning towards the timing chain.

What happens if your timing chain broke:
  • The timing chain no longer turns the cam(s)
  • The cam(s) no longer open/close the valves
  • The valves become stationary, remaining open or closed depending on the position of the cam(s)
  • If even one valve is open in a cylinder, no compression.
  • No compression, no start.
How do you confirm this without tearing apart your engine?

Do a compression test on all cylinders. If only one or two have compression (or one or more have zero compression), I'm tipping over towards the timing chain.

Have a compression test done.

Hope this helps
