Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!!!

Do you know if you have spark and fuel psi? What parts have been replaced?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I haven't replaced any parts yet and I do not know if I have the fuel pressure but I can smell the gas and hear the fuel pump running when I turn the switch on

Thanks for the reply!!!

If you smell gas it's very likely a no spark issue.. Do you have a test light? If so disconnect the coil and tell me if the green wire has 12v and if good then clip the test light to the positive battery and then probe the other wire and tell me if it lights up when your cranking.. Let me know so we can continue..

Talk soon,

Brad
