My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Check the ignition timing on the distributor and see if the timing is off. If the timing is good, then the accelerator pump in the carburetor or the fuel injectors are not working properly (if your vehicle has TBI injection). If you need further assistance with your engine not starting, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
