My car turns over but it’s acting like it’s getting no fuel to the engine. I can hear my fuel pump start when I turn the key, but it won’t fire, I checked my relay. What else could it be?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

When you have a crank with no start condition, it usually is the result of either a fuel-related or ignition-related issue.

Take a look at this link:

Here is what I want you to try: See if the engine starts using starting fluid. If it does and then stalls, we will know it's a fuel-related issue. If there is no change, then I need you to check for spark to the plugs.

Here is a link that explains how to check for spark:

Start with this and let me know the results.

Take care,

Joe
