Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Did you clear the blockage of the injector or fuel line and drop and clean the tank since it has stuff in it for some reason?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No not sure how to do this

Can you tell me?
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Remove the fuel tank and clean whatever junk is in there then replace the screen on the fuel pump. Remove the injector and cycle the fuel pump a couple of times to make sure the lines clear, replace the fuel filter and either manually clean the injector or replace it.

Is that the only thing that could cause this problem?
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Ive never seen it cause this problem but you said it is so you need to start by fixing that and see if there is still a problem.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you call me.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

I just submitted an additional service offer to call you. Once you accept and provide me with your phone number I can call.

I know the fuel pump is under back seat can i clean out from there with out droping the tank, I'm a girl and have limited work space and cant afford to take it in.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I know in my oppion i think it is a blockage but given the codes and how it happened is that your expert oppion.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

My opinion is its probably got a bad fuel pump. You can access the pump from there but good luck cleaning the tank without being able to turn it upside down. I would start by checking fuel pressure myself.

Ok thank you.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

No problem. Let me know if you need anything further.
