Customer Question

died on me while driving to school. I tried to start but start then dies in less than 2 seconds. I also diagnose it with the scanner/ reader few minutes ago, and the result it "No DTC" check engine light is on. Few days ago I notice smell of raw gasoline coming out from the rear exhaust and after 3 days it died and never starts again.
