Is the timing belt ok? Did it shut off while driving?

Does the engine sound like it's freewheeling?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes timing was done at 122000 miles yes it shut down while driving and no cranks over like normal just wont start

Was it a OEM sensor you used? If so then you will need a scantool at this point to see if the PCm is recieving the correct signal from the CKP..

Let me know,
