A: You will need to have the spark at the spar...

You will need to have the spark at the spark plugs checked and the fuel pressure at the fuel rail checked. If there is no spark then you may have a bad coil or ignition module. If there is no fuel pressure then you may have a bad fuel pump. You should have the systems tested and seek professional help for further diagnostics. If you'd like, a YourMechanic certified technician can come to your home or place of business to perform a car is not starting inspection on your vehicle and suggest any repairs.
