Hi Cliff, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's review again the basics. Proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done):

  • • remove sparkplugs, carefully perform spark test and determine if fuel enters the combustion chamber;
  • • drain-clean tank and replace with fresh fuel (even if just to eliminate as a suspect);
  • • check/clean gas tank vent hose;
  • • check/clean fuel path (least likely);
  • • check/soak/clean the injectors (likely);
  • • test fuel pump output pressure @ 43 psi (most likely).
