Thank you for that information. I have to step out for a bit but will be back early afternoon. I will do some digging for you and reply back

Hello and sorry for the delay! I am back now and will be on line for the rest of the evening.

So the engine just cranks over and does not start?

Does it run on starting fluid?

What is the fuel pressure currently at?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No we have not tryied starter fluid as of Monday morning by cycling the ignition it started for a Minot but then died although I cycled the ignition a couple more times after it wouldnt start see i wanted to avoid having to take it back to the mechanic that's y i contacted u when i did because i needed my car to get home immediately see i have very limited income so 30 $ seemed cheaper then taking back to the shop unfortunately for me u didn't respond quickly enough &i had to tow ut back to the shop like i said i needed my car right then or within a hour or so but its at the shop now i think i will try starter fluid but i need a good charge on the battery we ran it down by cranking it trying to get it started
