Default Help!! Car Just Died >_<

ok well.. i was just driving around ....then i took a turn and i shifted to 3rd gear... and for some reason i felt a HUGE power loss.... so then i tried down shifting to 2nd... CAR DIES....i wasnt even driving hard.

i tried to start it back up... its cranks, and lights work... CEL is on... but it doesnt start... o and like 2 mintues before that... it sounded like my amp wasnt working.. cuz there was nooo bass at all...not sure if that adds to the problem...

yes i have gas...well now my car is in a parking lot.. and i hope it doesnt get stolen..

if anyone can think of any ideas, please just shot them out to me...

I have a 95 impreza L with a ej20g v1/2 wrx swap.. i have been driving for about 2-3 month with the swap.. with no problem.. and all of a sudden this...


***update***
fuel pump- good
checked battery- good
it cranks normally.
used starter fluid.... nothing happened..
im guessing its spark...
..if anyone has any other idea let me know...



IT WORKS THANKS

This sounds like a similar issue I had when one of my coilpacks went. If 2 went at the same time (possible) it would not start at all so that may be the case.
