Check battery terminals, wires to starter, crank and camshaft position sensors/connectors.

Try checking your camshaft/crankshaft position sensor.

Those were fine. And they still are.

And as far as the cam/crank sensor, the car was running fine for about 15 minutes before suddenly quitting. And it was quite sudden.

It's odd, I know.

Can you instruct me on where the cam/crank sensor(s) are? I can give them a looksey.

Any ideas? I'm still stuck. And I am avoiding taking it to the dealer at all costs (and I am just about to).

I tried starting it again, but no go. The start turns, and the engine turns as well, but it won't turn under her own power. Battery is good, and engine seems intact. And I need this car running. At least in sellable condition. It won't be much longer that I'll be with the moneypit car.

I REALLY need help.
