YES, I can help.

Thank you for that information.

So does the engine start but stall out or does it just crank over and not start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It starts and stalls immediately
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Ok are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash?

Have you checked for codes in the computer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Checking for lights on the dash. No clue how to check for codes on the computer. All the lights are off
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Ok, thank you for that information. If there are no anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash, I would see if the engine remains running on starting fluid. It is possible that you just have a bad fuel pump or fuel supply issue causing this concern.

Thank you we will check that.
