Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you tell me if you hear the fuel pump turn on when the key is first turned on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I got my wife in the driver's seat and I got on the ground to listen for the tell-tale initial pump noise, I heard it but it sounded kink of 'rough.' I had her try to start it and it fired right over. Don't know what the difference is between yesterday and today.
Got in the van, backed down the driveway after letting is run for 5 minutes and it just slowly died and now won't restart.
