JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

first off, does it crank each time and just wont start? or does it click a bunch of times?

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
It cranks and won't start. It does after several cranks but that can as long as half hour plus.
Expert:  david craig replied 21 days ago.

you really need to check the fuel pressure

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
Fuel pump works. It comes on when I turn key. Is the pressure controlled by ECM?
Expert:  david craig replied 21 days ago.

i understand the fuel pump works, but it might be weak as heck...... or a supply line or filter clogged. the pressure is only controlled by the pump. and regulated by the fpr
