It was fine yesterday except the last time I started it, I had to start it 3-4 times to get it to run; acted like it wasn't getting enough fuel at first.

When you turn the key on you usually hear the fuel-pump motor but when I tried to start it today, I didn't hear the fuel pump motor and it turned over but wouldn't start at all. Could it be the fuel pump gone bad?

    My dad just came over and checked it out for me. It was the fuel-pump relay switch. He took the one for the heater and tried it; it started right up. I still need to get a replacement for the heater-I'm sure I'll need it sometime soon!
    Thanks for the quick response though. This is a great site, for everyone!!
