Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. It sounds like the fuel pump may have went out.

Have you checked for fuel pressure?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That was my guess What's the best way to check it
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.

Something that works a lot of times is to bang on the bottom of the gas tank with the palm of your hand while someone is trying to start it. If it starts then the pump is bad. That dont always work but it does a lot of times.
