fsck.ext4 no such file or directory while trying to open

Dear All,
I have one system with OS :- RHEL 6.4.

Found below problem at starting system:- fsck.ext4 no such file or directory while trying to open.

Cause:- Typo error at /etc/fstab.

1) After issue we had Tried to boot from single user mode.
2) After that we tried to edit the file but file is showing read only mode.
3) run below command and correct path name.
#mount -n -o remount,rw /
4) Now we edit the file and my system up and running fine.
