Check the fuel pressure and report back the readings. Or you can try below when it cranks over and refuses to start to determine if its fuel or ignition related-

Get a carb cleaner and spray into the carb or the throttle body on an EFI. Did it start and die? If not disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors-

I have red and mostly white spark after pulling the spark plug wire from the spark plug and grounding it. Could this mean it doesnt have a fuel problem and just needs a tune up? Laurie

I DIDNT TRY THE SPRAY, DID TAKE OFF THE FUEL LINE HOSES AND TRYED TURNING IT OVER NO GAS COMMING OUT AND NO PUMP NOISE! COULD THERE BE A SHORT IN THE WIRING BECAUSE WHEN I WOULD WIGGLE THE WIRES AT THE FUEL PUMP IT WOULD START FOR A COUPLE SECONDS.
