was the fuel filter changed..and fuel pressure checked...not to be rude but you need to start somewhere...


Just had this issue. Changed the fuel filter, didn't work. Changed fuel pump, didn't work. Changed the fuel pump relay, bingo! It works. Start there first, it's easier than changing fuel pump. Filter wasn't too bad. Hope this helps.
