Customer Question
My mazda b 3000...

My mazda b 3000 2001 cranks and stumbles a little but wont start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the engine's fuel supply? And the spark plugs -- are they all working?

Yes. Tested pressure at the fuel rail 0 pressure

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mazda2 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've replaced the fuel pump relay, checked the fuse, pulled the vacuum hose off the fuel pressure regulator, no gas in the line

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. Next would be to check voltage at fuel pump ill get you that info in just a sec
