This morning I start my car to worm it up. And left it for 10 min. When I come back. All lights, radio. Was on. But engine stoped running. My battery is good, and fuel tank is full.8 hrs later I try start my car again.I drove less than half a mile. And stoped on intersection becouse engine died. Simptoms were like car Running out of gas!What specialists think of it. Thank you!

So does it not start for a length of time?If so when it doesnt start check for spark if you have spark then you will have to check the actual fuel pressure. Also do you have any codes in the computer?

So does it not start for a length of time?Please answer that question. ALso before we check fuel pressure lets check for spark when it doesnt start. To check codes we need to use a code reader to look for trouble codes in the computer. To check fuel pressure you have to rent a fuel pressure gauge from auto zone and I can give you more instructions when you get it.

A fuel pressure gauge you can rent at auto zone the code reader you can see if they rent there also.I know you can buy one on amazon for under 20. Is the security light on solid or flashing when it doesnt start?
