When trying to start press foot on gas pedal right to the floor and hold then start cranking the engine

until it catches . holding down the pedal with cut the fuel pump off so not to flood the engine .

Let me know if she starts then work from there .

Hi Greg, tried it but she still doesn't want to start. The first turn of the engine is almost a good start and then only cranking after that. The best start I had was with the injectors out and the intake manifold off.

Do a fuel pressure test then a leak down test .

Lets see how fast the leak down is .
