Check it with a fuel pressure gauge. All my vacuum gauges also have a fuel pressure built into it. Lot of vehicles have a plug in the engine compartment where you can hook up a fuel pressure gauge. Also don't forget the ignition side for problem solving. Things like a bad coil can also prevent your car from starting.


haw much fuel is in it. if very low role it to level ground.


I agree witha Lawrence. Happened to me with a '95 Sentra.
