Three attempts made to start car, engine turned over but would not start. Shop ran diagnostic and did not find a problem. Cleaned fuel system. Items broken, but not worth the cost of repair: the driver's foot rest came loose from the mount, the passenger's sun shade mounting bracket broke, the center console storage door broke, and the passenger's door guard has come loose. Replaced car antenna. Rusted out.
