fuel filter is easy and cheap and if it hasnt been done in a while i'd do it anyway. Fuel pump relay should click when the key is turned after it has sat for a min. If you can figure out where it is and feel it (listen too) while the key is turned it will click. If it doesnt then chances are it's bad. Fuel pump should make a noise when it's working. How did they know it was fuel? did they do a pressure test?


Changed fuel filter today. Still no start. Multimeter is showing 12.5 v at battery. Shows 0.0 at BAT terminal on alternator
