Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Engine wont start... about to kill my self

yeah I am with bykfixer, who charged you 3k and for what?
give us more details, what got fixed or replaced? what all happens when you turn the key?
could be something simple
I tried for three hours double checking everything I could when I installed a freshly rebuilt motor and it wouldn't crank. turned out to be one tiny ground in the back of the bay

Re: Engine wont start... about to kill my self

he didn't say it was auto or 5speed ^.


when they fixed it the first time, what exactly did they fix that it cost 3k? you could have had a new motor installed for 3k.
