I have a 96' Toyota t-100 2Wheel drive Truck which I have not had any problems with other than changing out 2 clutches. Yesterday I parked it and when I went to leave It just wouldn't start. It seems like it turns normally but I am not either getting any fire our fuel passing to kick on. There are no engine codes I could retrieve either. Where should I look next to find out what my problem is?
Do you

The first thing we need to do is determine whether it is a no spark issue or no fuel. Remove a spark plug or wire and check for spark. You also need to find out if there is fuel pressure at te engine. Post back with your findings and we can go from there. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Sorry about the late posting. I've been gone for a while and just getting up and running again. Still trying to keep up. If you look on top of your engine, you should notice the line of injectors near the intake. There may be a fitting or a valve on the rail somewhere. If you have access to a fuel pressure gauge it should have an adapter with it to hook up to the fitting. Otherwise you can loosen the fuel line fitting. Then turn the key on but don't try to start it. If the fuel spits out a lot, you most likely have good fuel pressure. If not, check the fuel filter for clogging. If you need more help, let me know. I'll try to do better about keeping up.
