    Seen fuel pump failure, there is a shreader valve on the fuel rail remove the cap and see if fuel sprays out when the valve is depressed. That car may have a fuel pump reset button/inertia switch, open the driver's door remove panel on left side of dash if the relay is there it's a black relay with a button on top like a circuit breaker in a house. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
