Your fuel pump has failed.
The 40MPH speed limitation was caused by fuel pump under-supplying the engine with fuel.
The no-start condition is the fuel pump failing to supply fuel to the engine at all.
The reason your engine turned was that you have a good battery & good starter. The engine
just wouldn't catch for lack of fuel.
How to check this: attach an ODB-II code reader to the car's computer port and ask the car's
computer what it thinks is wrong with the car.
Theoretically, its possible that 1 or more fuel injectors failed, then they all failed, but the chances
of this scenario are nearly infinitesimal. A wiring harness problem (wiring from the PCM
(the computer) to the fuel injectors) could potentially cause this.... but its the fuel pump.
FIX: replace fuel pump.

Toyota corolla, engine seized


the first thing I would do I would check my alternator belt if it runs w pump and alt this could be the problem of overheating and dead battery on the engine part what I do is put a socket at the crankshaft bolt and turn it with a 1/.2 braker bar if it turns the engine is not seiced be sure the engine is off to this tests.

97 concorde with 3.5 engine @ 40 to 45 mph it starts bucking .


Computer firmware needs upgrade

Take your car to a Chrysler dealer shop and have them update the transmission program.As your tranny wears it loses it shift point and stutters between 40 - 45 mph looking for the right gear to change to..Had same problem in 94 Concorde and 94 T&C minivan.Reprogramming tranny fixed both cars.
