sorry not close to my car but roughly 140,000. I just had the engine heads replaced last October 2009 and had the fuel pump replaced probably around 2005.
OK, what we need to do is see if there is spark when it will not start.
Also if you have not replaced the fuel filter or plugs recently, then that is what I suggest you look at first.
You were told incorrectly. There is a sock in the pump, but the main filter is under the vehicle.
