I just ask that you provide me with the all of the correct information up front and with the most accurate tests results as we move on so that I can point you in the right direction. I would also appreciate a positive rating from you in return for sharing my time and knowledge and expeirence with you in a timely mannner. Even if you rate my answer after the first few replies, we can still continue our conversation at no further cost to you. With that being said, lets get started.
Does the engine have spark while cranking? Does it run on starting fluid? Does the check engine light GO OFF while cranking? Can I start by getting your VIN? Thank you!
Ok, thank you for that information. Have you checked fuel pressure? You might just have a bad fuel pump.
If the fuel pump is not running with the key on and cranking, just verify that it has power going to it. If so, the fuel pump is bad and will need to be replaced.
Ok, so the next step is to check injector pulse using a noid light. CLICK HERE The noid light should blink as the engine cranks over.
