Default NO START..Lack of Fuel ?? quick test ..

Most of you already know how to do these quick checks ..So this will be for those who do not..

chk to see if problem is lack of fuel...

get a can of carb cleaner,, DO NOT use starting fluid , that stuff is terrible to use,,Anyho. remove the intake tube that goes to throttle body, open up the butterfly using the accell cable , with butterfly open, spray carb cleaner in throttle body, release accell cable, GO start the car do not pump accell pedal,, if car starts the issue is lack of fuel ,,Now keep in mind that unless someone keep on spraying carb cleaner in the throttle body, the engine will start and die quickly,,but at least you know that it will start when giving it fuel , so you have found the problem,,well part of it ,, you still have to diagnose why engine in not getting fuel ...

possible causes

# 1 ,, chk fuses

# 2 ,,main relay, cracked solderings

# 3 ,,bad fuel pump

# 4 ,, wiring problem

# 5 ,,plugged fuel filter

and last but not least is out of gas,, YEP i have seen it a few times
