So it doesn't start, and just cranks?

Best Answer Mark helpful

it starts and will run for about 2 minutes and then just cuts off.  Could it be the fuel pump?


It might, but I would check the fuel pressure before swapping it. Might be ignition related too. Is the CEL on?

No the light when off when I changed the mass air flow sensor. Was told to check the other sensors
