anyone can respond thanks Chris
Expert:  Chris replied 10 months ago.

Great! Ok, after looking at those codes, I see that the fuel system went lean which is an indicator of possible fuel pump or an empty tank. How much fuel is indicated on the fuel gauge?

Tell me this: when you turn on the ignition switch, can you hear the fuel pump in the tank come on for about two seconds and then turn off?

i have not heard the fuel pump but again I am not sure what I am trying to hear for 2 seconds I did lean under the bed at the gas tank but heard nothing
Expert:  Chris replied 10 months ago.

It would be a soft whirring sound. Have someone turn the key on while you get your ear close to the tank. if you do not hear it, then try banging on the bottom of the tank with a hammer while cranking the engine. Sometimes that will get the pump to start running.

let me know,

Chris
