Hi Kevin, my name is***** the engine cover off, and have a helper turn the key to run, but not start. Can you hear the high pressure fuel pump kick on and run for approximately 2 seconds?

Hi Kevin, I don't want to call you just yet. These are extremely complicated engines and there is an 80/20 chance I won't be able to help you unless it's something easy or something stands out. Are you able to tell me if the high pressure pump runs for 2 seconds when you turn the key to run?
