Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 years ago.
does the engine light stay on?if so,can you give me the computer trouble codes?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I don't have comp. Or codes engine light is not on
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 years ago.
without the codes i will give you my thoughts..
sense you have 60psi of fuel pressure[and these must have no less than 60psi]i would think you have no injector pulse
1-this can be caused by a few things..
check the ecm fuse
the ignition module can cause it not to have a pulse,even if it does have a spark.
the crank sensor can cause it not to have a pulse.
if it isnt the crank sensor or the ignitioon module,,i would think it has a bad fuel-metering body[spider]
