My 2000 GT has the same problem...actually now it won't start at all. I have changed the fuel filter, and since I am the 3rd owner I can assume it was never changed before, it looked like liquid rust was running through my fuel lines. Can anyone that has changed one on a 2000 GT answer this part: After the connector (to the fuel pump) and the copper tube, there is a rubber hose then another copper tube; I know I pinched, pulled hard, basically kicked that rubber hose part, until I realized I needed a push connect release tool, could I have pinched an unseen copper tube inside the rubber hose?
Like I said, car still won't start...engine cranks and sounds like it just about wants to turn over, but it falls short. Had battery checked, and used a spare fully charged battery; still no start...changed spark plugs, again looks like in 71K miles they hadn't been changed, how it even got a spark before is unbelievable...still engine rotates but won't start. Changed the air filter, even though it was mildly dirty and checked to make sure there was no cracks in the hosing, and that all hoses were connected, etc.
I've tried to hear the whir from the fuel pump to see if that's it, but I hear a few clicks when the ignition is turned to on...don't know if I should be listening under the hood or at the gas tank for the fuel pump pressuring the system.
I don't know enough about the fuel injectors to know if there is something wrong with them either. So any help would be appreciated.
