Hi Greg,

Sounds like a fuel supply issue.

Does your gauge still work ok?

Can you give it a squirt of carby cleaner inside the throttle body to see if it fire up, even for a second or so?

gauge works
Auto Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Hi Greg,

Spray some carb cleaner into the throttle body, then see if it will start even for a second or two.

If it does, then you need to measure fuel pressure.
