Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.

What have you checked, those include fuel pressure, ignition spark and fuel injector pulse?

How did you verify you got bad gas?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

You should see a rating screen if I have posted an answer, not for an info request.

Your rating is my feedback. If I don't get feedback from customers, I will not be able to continue helping customers here.

Rating me good, bad, or not rating at all does not effect the fee you have paid nor does it close the post.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed.
