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?

Might just be the sending unit.


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-
