Does it make any noise when you try to start it? Have you given the starter a decent whack? (DO NOT BANG ON IT) If it starts after tapping the starter with a rubber mallet or a small wrench, its your starter. Alternator is a possibility. I need more details to help, but I will follow you post closely. Any warning lights? Sounds? Known issues with the car? Best of luck

No lights on it does not make any noise it sounds like it is out of gas gas was put in some part of the motor it ran for a little while then cut off


Fuel pump, maybe? Like "sixfootsix" said, the more info you can supply the better the problem can be diagnosed for you.


start with the fuel relays and or fuses then go for the bigger stuff , fuel pump in injectors, fuel fitter could be clog , lets hope its nothing to do with your timing? I don't know much about that motor


I'm guessing its a fuel pump. inside the gas tank, do you drive around close to E tank a lot?

Best Answer Mark helpful

some pumps burn up faster when tanks always on empty fuel lubricate the pump
