2 Answers

when you turn the key to the ON postion, to you hear the fuel circulating through the fuel rail? if no...think there is a fuel pump relay at play here...one sec, lemme check no relay found but a fuel cutoff switch and a skippy-fresh U-tube video~ check the power to it if you can~ get your diagnostic trouble codes read if you can~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqA4s6mxYNE

could also be the ignition if you're hearing circulating fuel---check for 12V at the positive side of the coil packs with the ignition on~
