Ok thank you

all the above sensor???

did you check the fuel pressure regulator?? remove the vacuum line and check for any fuel in the line. it should be dry of any fluid.

the idle air control valve is the most common for this starting issue.

Iac valve. But I did not do the fuel line do you have a diagram where that's located

it is right on the front frame rail by the throttle body, easy to get to. check it first. remove the vacuum line and start the engine and be sure there is not fuel leaking out of where the vacuum line is attached

Okay when I have the hood up and I accelerate it with the accelerator on the motor where the belts are located I hear almost a hissing noise like a vacuum leak is there anything vacuum related by the hoses or by the belt I should say underneath the power steering

there is a vacuum line on the end of the upper manifold on the back section. thats the only place unless the upper intake is leaking

Please take a moment and rate my service 3 stars or better. that is the only way the site will pay me for my efforts.

Alright you right after this last question I have fuel but I take that off so do I just wait till the check engine light comes on so I could diagnose what it is and just continue doing what I'm doing
