The civic has been sitting for approximately 4-5 years. I put fresh gas and a new battery in the vehicle. The vehicle will turn, but it will not start. Is there a fuse that connects to the fuel injectors where it is not allowing it to get the gas. It seems like it is not getting the gas. I sprayed starting spray in the intake and it will try for a minute and stop. It just seems like it is not getting the gas. Can you help?

Thanks

Hi jp8657,

After sitting for so long, the fuel pump could be dead. Did you test the fuel pressure?

At fuel filter, unloosen the 6mm hex pressure relieve valve and check for fuel when ignition switch is turned on.

Is there a special tool to remove that hex nut because it seems to be difficult to remove.

Use a 17 mm to hold the banjo nut and it would be easier to remove the 6mm bolt.
