Jason, are you just getting a click or is it cranking?


It cranks fine


I'm thinking its crank sensor

Try spraying starter fluid and see if it starts, if it does then its the fuel pump....


yep its probably the crank sensor as it uses this for a spark timing reference.


Or if your vehicle doesn't have a crank sensor, some have camshaft position sensors located on one end of the camshaft under a cover.
