    test fuel pump. manual check is to turn key and stop before it turns over. should be a sound coming from gas tank. short whirring sound. thats the pump priming the line. should last 2 sec.s than cut out. no sound, than no pump. if sound but lasts longer than 2 sec.s, than pump laboured and failing.
    check fuel filter for possible clog.
