maybe a fuel pump? Check the fuel pressure first before replacing.

Fuel Pump. Good advice. Try this. While some one attempts to start the vehicle...go to the rear of the car and smack the bottom of the GAS TANK with the palm of your hand a few times. If she starts....you have a bad fuel pump. Get back to us with the results.

I got one better grab a can of anything flammable wd40 carb cleaner any will do take your air intake off and give it a squirt not heavy just a little and start it if it starts and then dies Fuel pump replacement is inevitable. If it dont start you have a spark issue

Another possibility. Vehicle is out of gas...but gas gauge reads there is gas in the tank. Tap the bottom of the gas tank and see if it sounds empty. Get back to us with the results of these suggestions.
