Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you tell me what happens when it will not start. Does it crank and not start or does it nor crank at all? Is the security light on when you try cranking the engine?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it cranks but does not start it acts like it wants to start but wont we have checked the fuel and it seems to be coming out fine but i dont think it is actually getting fuel through to the throttle body because we have opened up the throttle body and poured fuel in it and it will rev right up but once the fuel is gone it dies and dont start again also it had started a couple times but when i put it in gear it died as well i hope this can help you help me

Thank you. It does sound like a fuel problem. It can be an issue with the fuel metering body or the security system shutting down the fuel. If the security light on inside of the vehicle when cranking the engine?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no the security light does not come on
