Hi,what type of no start condition are you experiencing,crank won't fire or just a no crank condition?
Hi,if you have some starting fluid spray or carb cleaner unhook air cleaner box and spray a little into the intake tube while someone cranks the engine over if it starts we are looking at a fuel delivery problem,this is a good starting point,let me know, thanks.
Hi, remove the rear seat bottom to access the fuel pump ,we need to see if we are getting voltage back there,because your fuel fuel gauge is not reading I'm suspecting some broken wires,so remove the lid on each side ,the bigger one accesses the pump the other the sub level sensor and will continue ,thanks
Any damage to the wiring thats you can see, the harness creeps back along the tank so look carefully
At the pump there is a green wire with a yellow tracer, this wire should have battery voltage
Hi,the voltage reading is correct,the next step is to connect the green diagnosis connectors to see if the pump makes noise.The connectors I'm speaking of will operate all solenoids,relays ,cooling fans and pump, all these will cycle on/off.the connectors are located in the passenger foot well under the carpet near where your left foot would rest,they are attached to the wiring harness coming out of the firewall,connect them then turn key to on the fuel pump should operate on and off if no noise the pump is faulty,thanks
Hi,remove the fuel line at the engine to see how much fuel if any is being pumped you will need the disconnect tool which is available at all auto parts stores and preferably a clear glass container to catch the fuel,and also it get a look if maybe it's contaminated with water or debris.
Hi while the fuel pump is cycling does the fuel come out in a steady stream or just dribble
If it's just a dribble it working but volume is the problem,sounds like a fuel pump is needed
