About my son's 2000 Toyota Celica. Yesterday he went down the street to the corner store, with no problems. When he was leaving the store, the car started no problem, but while he was idling, waiting for traffic , the car just quit and left a large puddle of gas on the ground, and now the car won't start at all. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Shelley, Might be that the car ran out of gas. Large puddle of gas leaking = DANGER DANGER. I recommend you don't drive the vehicle, but instead have it towed to your mechanic to find out what is wrong. All My Best, Amy
