Hello???

Did you have fuel pressure before you replaced the pump? Do you have spark?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No, my vehicle was actually towed to firestone and they diagnosed it as fuel pump needing replaced. They wanted an outrageous amount to fix, so I had it towed home bc I could fix it for much less.

Ok I see, Do you have spark?

We need to check the injectors to make sure they are working. To test a injector you will need to listen to it while cranking the engine. Here is a generic youtube video on the procedure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tA_E6X4ISgQ
