I was driving and it shut off then would not start again some people listen and said it was the fuel pump not working so I replaced it with a new one and it works put it will not still start and there is no gas getting through the line to engine what do I do or check next
Fuel pump does not seem to be working which I know is in gas tank. Had it replaced but still will not
turn over. Acts like it will start but does not turn over. It just happened. Put gas in it made it home
turned off like normal next morning tried to start won't turn over. Checked fuel pump replaced but still
wont start
It turns over but it is like there is no gas getting through. I think there is a defective relay switch.
I drove to the doctor shut it off went out to start it and leave and it won't start. It acts likes it wants to start but it's not.
Replaced fuel pump due to failure. Fuel filter was and is replaced every 20,000 miles.
