Q: Q: car won't start

asked by on

Went to accelerate to get onto the highway. My engine revved up to 4,000 and wouldn't go. I pulled to the off ramp and the engine shut off. I have had the timing belts, water pump done 6 months ago. The transmission is only 1 1/2 years old. Not leaking any fluids any where. Have fluids changed on a regular. The car was not starting on hot days after driving for awhile. Replaced the sensor in front of the engine. Haven't had that issue since. Now this. I have spark, I have fuel, car is getting fuel. It cranks like it wants to start just won't.

My car has 165000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
