That was not an helpful answer you ask me a question and now you want me to pay the same price for phone call. I feel ripped off.

I​f you are experiencing a crank No start, No dtcs present and have performed a quick visual inspection of the fuses. Verify your fuel quality and pressures. Note this is not a dealer practice, but if you squirt a shot of starting or either fluid in the intake(not a lot) and crank over the motor. will act like it wants to start or possible run for a short period and die? I am trying to establish an under standing of your current situation and concern in order to better assist you. thank you

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
