My car wont start but it cranks, what could it be?
Those are known to stretch the timing chains once they get up in miles to the point where the engine goes out of mechanical crankshaft to camshaft timing enough not start. In order to confirm this is the issue a person would have to turn the crankshaft to cyl. 1 top dead center and see if the camshaft timing marks line up where they should. I can elaborate if this is something you'd like to do yourself.
Do i need to change the brake pads and discs???
No you don't, you can have them turn the brake disk/rotor . Turning the brake disk/rotor is when you have the surface of the disk resurfaced by having a brake lath cut the high spots down.
The disk are cheap enough now that most will just replace the disk/rotor the same time they replace the brake pads. You can pick up performance drilled or slotted brake disk/rotor for almost the same price as the OEM disk/rotor.
Good luck and hope this helps, you can pick up the slotted brake disk/rotor at Auto Zone for a reasonable price and they will have the step by step instruction replacing the disk and if you like to just have the disk/rotor turned, they can do they there too.
