Crank it for awhile. Pump the gas and then try again. Then pop the hood, and see if you smell gas. If you don't smell gas, then its most likely your fuel pump that is shot and needs replacing.

The sure way to tell if you have gas is to pull off the gas line at the carb and put it in a pitcher or bucket and turn the key. Tt should spurt gas into the bucket. Test for spark by holding a spark plug wire with plug attached near the block and see if the plug shorts to the block.

what brand and grade of fuel are you using? I've had very poor perfomance from 87 oct gas on a few ocassions due to high water content...park the car inside(somewhere warm) and pour a couple bottles of gasline anitfreeze in if the ohter options above don't work...good luck

PLEASE DON'T DO THE SPARK TEST NEAR THE PITCHER OF GASONLINE. EYEBROWS / FACES ARE A GOOD THING!

you can tell if the fuel pump is working by having someone turn the key to the on position while you stand near the gas door. If the pump is working you will be able to hear it prime itself for a couple of seconds.

If you hear nothing that means the pump is not going on. Check the relay and the fuse for the pump to make sure that they are ok.

no prob. But problems do happen for a reason. i wouldn't just shrug it off. Keep an eye and an ear open to see if yor car is doing anything abnormal.

But maybe there was a loose lead from the ecu and when you reconnected it you remedeyed the problem.

good to hear that you are back on the road<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
