In the past, my car would shut off while I am at a red light. I've had the alternator, battery, spark plug changed less than two months ago. Now, my car will not start. Any ideas or suggestions or what maybe the problem?
You may be experiencing a failing fuel sending unit, in this I say because, I have experienced many times over the "stopping" of a vehicle shifts low level fuel in the tank causing low fuel pressure.
You may also have a failed Idle Air Control (IAC) which can build up with carbon and become less effective and may cause a "no start issue".
Hello Shani- what I would start with is a fuel pressure & flow test - it sounds like it could be a fuel pump problem- hope this helps- thanks Super Girls Auto.

Unfortunately, there are countless possibilities that would lead to a vehicle not starting. I suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified technician that can properly diagnose the problem before you replace any other parts. If you are having trouble finding a trustworthy technician, visit the female friendly dealership listed on Ask Patty, or simply ask friends/family/coworkers who they trust.
