    Tries to start but can't. Mechanic said probably fuel pump. To extend the life, he suggested turn the key on but don't start and count to 6; turn key off; turn key on for count of 6 and then start and it cranks right up. Depends on how bad it is as to how long this will work. Hope it gets me to Jan or Feb. 2015!!
