Thank you for the VIN! Is the engine cranking over but not starting or is it not even cranking over at all? Have you checked for codes in the computer?

Thank you for that information. Have you checked for spark and or fuel when cranking when the engine does not start?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
if I let it sit a while, when I first turn the key,it sounds normal for a second while (while starting),then sounds like it is not right.
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.
Ok, we need to check for spark and fuel when cranking. It is possible that your missing spark (due to a bad crank sensor) or missing fuel (due to a bad fuel pump.)
