My 2008 Avenger 3.5L wont start when I turn the key. I can hear the starter turning but there is no sound of engine ignition or firing whatsoever. The ETC light (red lightning bolt) is on as well.
It all started when I was driving on the highway and was going up a hill. The car automatically tried to shift down a gear to make it up the hill but instead of shifting gears the engine just shut off. The lights and radio etc were still working fine, but when I was pulled over and tried to start it back up it it wouldn't go.
I suspect it's either the crankshaft position sensor or fuel pump that is not working, but I am really not sure.
If anyone has had this problem or knows what is wrong your input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

There should be some check engine codes that have been tripped. Sounds like a throttle body problem.

If the car had been running properly(NO performance "hiccups") before this happened, and under the conditions described. I will ask for honest response of the OP, an 08 model with a timing belt powered motor, has the TIMING BELT ever been replaced? How many KM on the "clock'?
