My 2008 Chevy HHR has an issue... wife was headed home,

Customer Question
Hello... my 2008 Chevy...

Hello... my 2008 Chevy HHR has an issue... wife was headed home, turned a corner and it died... hasn't started since...

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

There is no issue with the battery... motor turns but doesn't fire...

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your HHR yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I'm fixing it myself... so far we've changed the starter, reset the timing, replaced the timing chain tensioner, adjustable timing chain arm, replaced the exhaust cam gear, replaced cam sensor and crank sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that comes to mind currently...
