how did this problem first begin?
what engine do you have?
I pulled up to a red light Thursday afternoon and when I started to proceed through the stop light it went dead and would not crank. Would turn over and would run a few seconds when sprayed with carb cleaner. Was told it was the fuel pump. Fuel pump is working but still won't run.
I have a six cyclinder engine
will it start now with starting fluid?
just for a few seconds and then it will go dead again
and you have fuel pressure at the rail

Lower Right Side of Engine
Under ignition coil pack, at front of engine.
