Car died in the middle of the street, cranked but wouldn't turn over. diagnosed as faulty fuel pump, replaced.
faulty fuel pump
Fuel pump went, was replaced after being towed.
Been told could be fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Cant find out how to tell which it actually is. Trying to find person or obd2 code reader to tell me so i can fix it.
Cranks but will not start no fuel pressure
This happened to me on a rainy humid day that the car had not been driven for 3 days. It appeared that the humidity was affecting the starter because after several attempts, some rest (thinking that the starter was dead), and one last attempt, the engine started no problem . Thank god I gave it some time before calling the tow truck.
