Thank you for choosing Just answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your vehicle
Need to see if you are getting spark....Need to find out how much fuel pressure you are getting. Even though you hear the pump running, sometimes it doesn't mean it is producing pressure......If you have fuel pressure and spark. There is a chance that the cylinders are washed out. If so then put a little bit of oil in the cylinders and crank it over (no spark plugs installed). After a couple of cranks, installed the plugs and start it. there will be a lot of smoke but it should start
