Question type: General

While driving down the interstate my engine died.
Headlights, dash lights and stereo were still on but
the engine stopped. The engine cranks but won't
turn over. The fuel pump is working,I get sparks
from the plugs but it still won't start. Any advise on
what to check

You're either not getting proper fuel or spark. Really could be either. Without seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is. Why don't you take/tow it to a mechanic to diagnose. You'll then have his opinion and estimate and can have him fix it, or use his review as a guide to doing repairs yourself?
