ANSWER by bmdouble , September 22, 2010
is it a cranks no start concern,or are you having a concern with a normal crank speed but no start?we have had concerns with everything from batteries,ground cable at block loose to fuel pumps dropping pressure.
COMMENT by marcus9415 , September 22, 2010
where is the ground cable at on the block but battery fuel pump is good
COMMENT by bmdouble , September 23, 2010
it is on the left front part of the engine,you will have to get under the vehicle to see where it attaches.
