No Fuel... help
Mothers car is a 2000 V6 Base model and car has been running great but she called me the other day because it wouldn't start. I've been playing with it and came to the point I think it needs a new fuel pump.
She hasn't had it its whole life but she got the car around 60k and now with alot of highway travel its well over 250,000. Still on the original pump I believe.
My diagnostics so far consist of
Car will turn over, never start.
Theft light comes on, stay for 3 secs, goes off, does NOT come on when cranking (Should rule out PATS)
No fuel pressure at rail (cranking with valve depressed and no fuel got onto rag)
Changed fuel filter (while filter was off, had her crank the car, still no fuel)
Beat on the gas tank (nothing)
Checked inertia switch by tail light, tapped with wrench and it reset, still nothing.
Checked fuses, replaced them just to be safe, even big Bus 20a one.
Besides the control module or the pump itself is there anything I overlooked?
I just want to run by the masses before I go thru the trouble to drop the tank and replace the pump module and find out it was something simple I overlooked.
Please help, she needs the car drive-able for work and I'm out of other ideas.
