Not starting

Ok, been awhile but I went out from work yesterday morning and my 94EB would crank, but not turn over. Almost sounds like it is out of fuel. Had the battery replaced last week, and I can hear the pump priming when I turn the key. Really sounds like a dead empty tank. Maybe Fuel pressure regulator? Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Patrick

check to see if there is fuel pressure at the injector rail, by pushing in on the valve after you turn on the key, better yet if you have a pressure gauge screw it on the valve and check pressure...always need to determine if it is electrical or fuel related , before throwing money at a problem

Agreed. Make sure there's pressure at the rail. It's never a bad idea to replace the fuel filter. Gas nowadays suckssssssss so replacing the filter for the 10$ it costs is never a bad preventative maintenance measure.

Ok. Truck sat for 2 days, had a friend that is an auto tech go to check it out and it started right up for him without a problem. Kind of confused, but I am obviously happy. Maybe wet wires from the rain? I guess it is kind of a moot point now, but....
