What do you mean fuel pressure? I've bought new spark plugs and presume they would have spark. But if the new spark plugs do not make a spark what could possibly be the problem there?

You could possibly have a camshaft or a crankshaft position sensor that has failed and is no longer giving off a signal. Look at your tachometer if you have one and crank it over. Does the needle move? If it doesn't have next best option is to scan the Engine control module for faults.


Just wanted to know...if the needle does move then is the problem still related to camshaft or crank shaft...please reapond
