2009 Buick Lucerne Question: before replacing a fuel pump due to car not starting what should I check first

also while driving just shuts down -
Answer 1
The fuel pressure to see if that is the reason it's not starting! -

Check for fuel pressure at engine rail. We have taped a pressure gauge to the windshield and driven vehicles while watching for pressure drop. -

When you turn the let on u should hear the pump priming the engine if u don't check your fuses.and maybe use a multi metor and check the volts on the wires going to the pump. If u hear it come on and out won't start try replacing your fuel filter -

AN '09 DOESN'T HAVE A EXTERNAL FILTER. -

Talk about people that think they are experts! You know what i mean! Any way this guy takes the car out in the rain for a test drive and you guessed it, them wipers had to be replaced! That is a da.n good test, i have left the gauge on them a couple days before. You do what ever it takes on an intermittent though! -

I'd hate to see the big gauge you would need to be able to see it at your age. By the way- I'm not answering his questions after his remarks. A new one listed now. -

Likewise! I never claimed to be an EXPERT!!.....You are only as old as you make up your own mind to be! (I wish) Hell, that's what glasses are for! -
