No it's all plug in and the fuel pump is pumping fuel. It's just not getting to the engine to make it fire.Is there anything i need to reset?

Dont know,I just think something just shut off and needs to be reset,A code or some thing?

Expert:  Neal replied 5 years ago.

There is nothing that can shut off or would need to be reset.


You need to check the fuel pressure, something must have happened to the pump or regulator while handling the assembly.
