Sorry we must be in a different time zone , when you didn't reply I went to bed as it was after 12:00 pm here. If you wish we can continue here.Thanx for that info, now we have to determine if it is spark or fuel problem causing this.The fast and easy way to eliminate a fuel problem is to use quick start as some one turns it over give a shot into the throttle body. Don't worry I won't leave you stranded again and I won't ask you to rate me until we solve this. But what you might want to do is do a battery load test because i have seen many times a battery crank good but no reservepower goin to the ignition, they should have at least 9+ volts in reserve.
