My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. It sounds like you may have a fuel system issue. Most of the time this is caused by a failure in the fuel pump. I have seen this occur frequently on this truck and it will cause these same issues. I would check the fuel pressure first. If there is none then the circuit should be tested first. If there is voltage at the pump then the pump has failed. If there is good fuel pressure then the ignition system will need to be diagnosed. If you want to have this no start checked out, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose why it does not start.
