You will hear the fuel pump prime up every time you turn the key to the on position. Thats a good thing.

Can you help please


Yes or no, I get the e-mail you delete...but what ever, just here to help. The best thing to do would be to check the fuel pressure. That is a fine screen on the end of the fuel pump and could hold fine d-bree, plugging it up.
