My Plymouth Prowler has been sitting up for about a year. Put non ethanol in tank and cleaner but won't start. Mechanic thinks needs new fuel pump. Anything I can try before I do that?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just can't get Prowler to start after sitting for a year or so. Hate to replace fuel
pump. Put new non ethanol fuel in it and occasionally it will almost start but
won't. Any ideas I can try before replacing fuel pump?

Definitely have the mechanic verify the fuel pump before replacing. Check the fuel pressure, Replace fuel filter first.

cool car- you should have drained and cleaned the tank- a year is too long to leave modern gas- now that gummy ethanol is all up in your injectors and everything- hopefully, you can clean it in some simple way-

Since the mechanic thinks the fuel pump should be replaced, pull the tank and clean it also-
