Hold gas pedal on the floor (wide open) while cranking to see if it will "clear flood" and start. Scan test and fuel pressure testing required to determine why this happened.

Thank you so very much I will try. Don't know who you are but I tried what you said, hold pedal to floor and it fired right up. So I took it on a test drive up a big hill and it ran great. Now should I get a pressure test? And I cant thank you enough. Tank you

You are most welcom! Just wait and see, if this gets to be a regular problem have it tested.

OK I WILL HOLD OFF. THANKS AGAIN.

Well now that you know what to do in case this happens again, i think that you will be ok. However if it gets to be a frequent problem, have it tested. One more thing, if the check engine light is on, or should it come on, you may want to take it to AutoZone or Advance Auto and have them read the codes, this is a free service! Then post those 'exact' code numbers, we will advise further.

Have them check the ABS Control Module if the transmission does not see power coming from the Control Module it will not start
Hope this helps

Sorry, but that information is not correct!! It might have fixed SOME Antilock Brake System problem that you had at one time but it does not apply here,, AT ALL!!!

Ok take the harness off of the ABS Unit and see if the car starts just because you guy are on here helping people with their questions don't mean that you know everything it's ok to be wrong every now and then. Like I said with another post I'm just telling my side and what I did to get my problems fixed

Read, it was solved!! Why would you add anything else??? That may have fixed your problem but it has got nothing to do with this one!!
