Dealing with what we call a Crank No Start is not difficult. If your check engine light is on, see if there is anyway to have somebody get the codes from your engines computer. If not, we will have to do it the long way. We will need to check for fuel and spark. First see if you can get the codes. The codes will pin point your problem and make it easier to repair. Guessing only cost alot of money and grief.
