This sounds like a bad fuelpump, try spraying starting fluid in throtle instead of pouring gas, when you pour gas it may not enter all cylinders it may just sit in intake galley. try the starting fluid.also have someone crank the engine while you beat on bottom of gas tank with a rubber hammer, this sometimes shakes fuelpump and make a contact to get pump going again.

Shut down while driving down road and wont restart what could be trouble? Tried to restart but now it just turns over


Spark and fuel. First check the spark to your plugs by pulling a boot off and connecting a spark tester that you ground to the engine block. The old mechanics just rig a screwdriver inside the boot and hold it a 1/4" from the ground while someone cranks the engine. If there is no spark CHECK FUSES FIRST . Then look to test ignition components. Crank sensor, cam position sensor, etc. IF THERE IS SPARK - Check the fuel Relay. All of these components can usually be tested free at the local parts stores. Lastly a test of the fuel pump is in order. Try a direct voltage connection to see if it runs.
Good Luck!!!!!

1989 toyota corolla quits when going down road but still turns over


As with any no start issue, you will need to find out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem to proceed.
Once you find that out you can either let us know or research it online.

My van suddenly quit while driving down the road. The fuel pump is working, but will just turn the engine over and not run.


Check for spark, if there is none, two possible problems, the ignition module is bad or the CPS (crank position sensor is not working).
