It sound exactly like a Crank Sensor issue to me. Change your Crank Sensor and you will be up and running again.

Battery is too low to turn the engine over. Get it jumped and drive it to AutoZone. They will run a free diagnostic and tell you whether it's the battery or the alternator.

Drove it home, evrything fine, went out 2 hours later, will not start, engine turns over but wont start, replaced the coil pack still wont start


Make sure that you have fire and fuel. You may want to spray some ether into the air intake. If it doesn't want to start and it has fire, you may want to consider the timing chain.

I was driving and the car just dead the rmps droped really fast then just died out. the wouldnt turn over. it has a spark its sucking air the starters clicking everything sounds fine but it wont start....


Unfortunately this is indicative of a failed alternator. When teh vehicle is started teh battery provides teh initial power to turn over the starter and then it stops and allows teh alternator to provide the power required to keep teh engine running (fire needed requires spark, air, and fuel) When an alternator dies the battery has a RCA or reserver capacity amps that indicate how long the car will run on batter power only. Since you indicated a sudden decrease in the car and a dead conditions with failure to turn over then it leans towards the bad alternator. Depending on your mechanical ability you can remove the alternator and have it checked at the local aprt store. Try jumping the car and then ave someone follow you to the part store.. yo uwill like have to rejump it several times... if you arent comfortable removing alternator. If your battery has been running the car on RCA than having input back into it from teh alternator then its likely it is burned out... So replacement of alternator and battery are recommended.

Wont Start - No Spark


Older VW's and Audi's are notarious for this type of behavior. You actaully need a Vag or good diagnostic tester to tell you which plugs are mis-firing. You will need to replace a coil-pac or two. VW's issued a recall notice about 3 months ago about this issue and intends to re-imburse owners on certain models and years for coil-pac repalcement. After market coil-pacs should cost less than $50.00 each. Hope this helps.
