Not likely timing belt. The simple stuff first. Spark, fuel - likely spark...

I was thinking spark as well, as it did run, which means it's getting fuel.

I am not able to find the exact method for clearing the ECU. I have read to remove power from it over night, hold the + and - cables together for 10 seconds then reconnect to battery... Anyone know the right way to clear the 306993?

Old colt did wires and plugs, as well as new coil pack about a year ago. If you were to hazard a guess, what could have happened to the ignition system from all the cranking/sputtering and misfiring?

Any ideas I could give the tech at Meineke would sure be much appreciated, before he spends hours diagnosing and whacking me with a huge bill.
