I've fixed a few of these, so I might be able to help. How have you determined that you have fuel? Just by hearing the fuel pump run? Take the cover off the throttle body and poor a bit of fuel in, see if it starts. I've had a couple of these now that won't start, most of the time it's the computer

when it is the computer it's just the resistor for the driver that runs the fuel pump relay. these engines are too dumb to die without reason. unless you have no compression... but normally it's the fuel pump/relay/or ecm.

figured it had fuel cause i disconnected the fuel line by the right front wheel turned the key on and fuel pissed out:dontknow:

Then put some fuel down the throttle body and see if it starts, if it does it's time for a computer

a lot of the time the resistor goes and kills the fuel injection , i have some in brookswood you can have ,604 618 5272
