Does the engine crank over and not start or does it not crank over at all?

Are you looking for possible causes?

Would you be willing to speak over the phone?

engine starts fine acts like its good for about 30s to min then just sputters and dies each time you try to restart engine sputters out after starting for less time. till its just started for like 10-20 sec. instead of getting better like the mechanic that replaced the heater core said it would do. yes trying to see what will make it run again and yes on the ph fine(###) ###-####
