How many miles do you have on the car?Also, was the check engine light on when it was running?
Ok, this shouldn't cause it to not start unless there is a wiring issue to the fuel pump.
I would start by spraying some carb cleaner or starting fluid directly into the throttle body, then crank the engine. If you have park, the car should spit and sputter a bit until it runs out. Then we will know to troubleshoot the fuel pump and injection. If it doesn't then you likely have no spark and we can trouble shoot that.
Start here and let me know the outcome, then we can take it from there.
Ok, it's a good sign then and you are very welcome.
Next, pull the fuel line off the fuel filter and see if there is fuel coming out while cranking. If possible get a container for the gas to go into and get a helper to crank. It should only pump fuel for a few seconds unless the engine is being cranked.
Let me know.
Well, since you have the temp sensor code, it's possible there is a wiring issue back to the fuel pump, but the first thing I would suggest is checking the fuel level. Take the back seat bottom out and remove the pump cover and even the pump if you would like to check it and make sure there is gas. I know it makes me sound like a smart arse, but I once sold a fuel pump to only find out the car was out of gas when I took the pump out. Sometimes the gauge can be wrong. Either way, we are going to need to get to the wiring to make sure your getting power back there.
I need to know if it's a legacy outback or a legacy L to check the wiring diagram and if it's an auto or manual.
Ok, do you have a test light?
Is there fuel?
Ok and not a problem at all. I should be online in the morning Eastern time, then have to take some time off and will be back in the afternoon.
