Yes we have fuel pressure. I is really weird I pulled it in to the garage to change the fuilds and went to start it and it wont fire.

Make you didn't pull a connector loose at the coil, crankshaft sensor. check the ground connection at the battery for broken or corroded wire. This is the pcm ground.


The small black wire with the connector at the battery.
