Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This issue here can be due to a faulty fuel pump which was a common issue.Usually with the key on or cranking over the engine you should hear the pump whine or run at the fuel tank as it is seated in the fuel tank area.If you do not hear this noise at all this is usually a good indication the pump has failed.

I would have fuel pressure tested with a fuel pressure test gauge.If pressure is found to be low or no pressure at all then the power and ground signals need tested at the pump.If the pump has power and ground then it needs replaced.If you need info on how to test this let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Can hear fuel pump when key is turned

Is there any way you can remove a spark plug or two and see if it is wet with fuel at all?
