Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if you hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when the key is turned on? Have you checked for spark?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the fuel pump is buzzing no haven't checked for spark
Expert:  BOBBYSS replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. It sounds like you may be lacking spark. To check for spark you need to remove one of the plug wires from one of the plugs. Take a screwdriver and put it into the plug wire. Hold the handle of the screwdriver and place part of the metal about 1/4" from a metal part on the engine. Have someone crank the engine see if you see a spark. If not then it may be a bad ignition control module.
