It appears that the fuel pump may be bad. Before it started fine. Then one day it wouldn't sart. A week later it started up fine. Now it wont start at all or even try to. We pulled the fuel line off the fuel rail and cranked the engine. nothing comes out. We repaced the fuel filter, still no luck. Im not sure how the new fuel systems on these cars work, but if I remove the fuel line from the fuel rail and crank the engine, shouldnt their be fuel squirting out? If i Spray carb cleaner in the throttle body, it fires right up then dies once the fumes are gone. I think it cant be a fuel pump fuse, because if it were blown the starting problem wouldnt have been intermitent. What does the relay do? can this be the problem? If you listen in the engine on the passenger side near the fire wall, you do hear a little buzz for a few seconds. I thougt that was the fuel pump, but apparently not. Its located in the tank. I tried pulling the filter cap and listening for a noise when the ignition was turned on, but didnt hear anything. Im starting to thinks its the pump.
