Q: Q: Car will not start.

asked by on

For weeks there had been a loud gas odor inside and outside the car, I was told it was a gas leak in the gas tank so I bought a used one and had it put on. A week or so later after putting gas the car would not start, I was then told it was a fuel pump issue. I bought a brand new one and when the mechanic came to fix it he stated it was not that it was due to the chip in the car key not working. Now I am being told the entire motor is locked and I am unsure as to how.
My car has an automatic transmission.
