have you had the battery or alternator tested ? does the volt gauge go to low volts when you try to start it ?

battery is fine has plenty of charge not draining by trying to start it either

have you tried checking the fuel rail pressure ?
Replycasteeltina, February 07, 2011, 18:17Rookie
no how do you do this?

it looks like a tire valve stem on the top side of the engine , now this is messy doing this , have someone try to start it , while taking a screw driver to the center of it like you were letting air out , to make sure fuel is being pumped to the injectors . so watch out for spraying gas !!!

With respect, I would advise strongly against doing such a thing. The port is there for a gauge to be installed, not to be depressed in a rudimentary test of spraying fuel. I understand what you are suggesting, but feel as if this act would be putting the consumer in harms way.
