It turns over but it is like there is no gas getting through. I think there is a defective relay switch.
Replaced fuel pump due to failure. Fuel filter was and is replaced every 20,000 miles.
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
