CAR HAS BEEN SITTING FOR A YEAR OR SO AND WAS RUNNING AT THAT TIME

Car will not start right now unless starting fluid is sprayed in intake path. Believe injectors are not firing!

Check fuel pump pressure.

Could be if you check it with a noid lite

I checked just by opening line to see if pump was pumping, because pump was not pumping at first. Is there a minimum pressure to trigger injectors to open?
