#1 of 3 Car Shut off and wont start. 1995 Protege LX
Feb 21, 2012 (11:40 am)
I was driving two days ago went to the gas station to buy gas. Almost immediately after driving with the new gas my car shut off and I had it towed to back home because it wouldnt start back up. I changed the Spark plugs, wires, Distributor cap and button. The fuel line seems to be working from what I can hear. Timing belt is fine ! Also the car cranks as if it wants to start but will not turn over.

When you turn on your car key and get nothing, you might be in for a bad day. Just check your fuses first and your battery.

as aaronjohn mentioned, check fuses and battery. If it died WHILE you were driving, it might be the alternator. Should be pretty easy to rule out fuses & battery first, though.
