My car has 196000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
If you have spark and fuel, and your finger feels there is compression, then the only thing left to check is if there is no fuel injection signal to open the injectors.
Look on dash to see if the theft light is on. If it is, then you need to have the system tested to see if it is the key or the anti-theft system that is failing. If the light is not on the dash then check the EFI fuse to see if it is blown and replace it. If you still have issues and need help then I suggest getting a mechanic who can diagnose it with a scanner to see why the computer is not opening the injectors.
I’d recommend getting the vehicle inspected by a certified technician who can perform these checks and diagnose your starting issue firsthand. An accurate repair can then be made once the problem has been assessed.
