Replaced the timing chain and now you have to pump the gas for it to start once it is started you have to keep your foot on the gas peddle or it dies right away. Could it be the fuel sensor? We have checked the fuel pressure and it's good. It sounds like the pump is running fine. Could it be the crankshaft? Or timing sensor? It just acts like it not getting fuel. 3.6 v8 engine
