I have been struggling with a no staret problem on my car. I used NOID lamps to check the FI, checked the spark, and checked fuel pressure when cranking. I saw 42psi but the lamps only show the injectors firing once and I show an engine fault. It starts with starter fluid momentarily so I think it is a fuel system issue. How likely is it that the fuel filter/pump are running but not producing steady pressure ?

First make sure your air filter and all the components are connected to the throttle body.
it is turning over, but like its not getting enough fuel. i have tapped on the gas tank, tapeed on the fuel relay, pumped the gas pedal, to avail

engine won't engage. Is there a fuel reset switch or fuse
