On my orig. Question - I was told to cycle the ign. Key on and off 3 times before trying to start, Is there anything else that needs looked into to fix this condition? Thanks again, Ray (rn1944@verizon. Net)

Ok let me explain here. To cycle the key as I have asked will let us know what the fuel pump may be doing. If you cycle the key as requested and it starts up as it should then the next step is to check the fuel pressure after the car has sat for a while if the fuel pressure isn't coming up as it should be but does when you cycle the key then the fuel pump needs to be replaced. Hope this better explains and helps. Let me know what you find.
