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

Have you checked anything yet? Also do you have a scan tool to check for codes?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i tried cleaning throttle body intake and i got someone to start the car while i was spraying the cleaner in to the throttle body. It would start but die right away.

Did you get gas in it recently?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
drove for couple of day after putting gas.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

I would suspect either a failed cam position sensor or fuel pump. You need to check either the injector pulse or fuel pressure to narrow down which one it would be.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it died in the parking lot and sat there overnight and next day i added some oil to it because it was low. It started and i drovei it home and parked it. I started couple hours later on the same day and it started again. But i tried starting couple hours later on the same day and it didn't start.

It sounds like the fuel pump went out but you need to check the fuel pressure to confirm that and then when you drop the tank verify the pump has power and ground to it before replacing it.

k, let me check and i'll let you know.
