Probably mine will work...I have the same car....I had the same problem...try this....open the hood,there is a valve, first take the cover off where you raise the engine up manually,I think you might need a island key to take it off,under it ,ther is a cap,unscrew it,and there is a valve like your tire valve,depress it..until the air or gad stop hissing out,if air come out,your problem is solve,try starting it,it should start,or try putting some dry gas in the tank,try several time....good luck

You should hear the fuel pump run momentarily when the key is in the Run position. Ensure the engine has a good spark by removing one of spark plug boots. Stick a phillips screwdriver in the boot, and hold the handle of the screwdriver, and allow the shaft near ground. (motor works best) Have someone crank the engine and look for a good blue spark arch from the screwdriver and engine. If your getting good spark, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel injection rail.

Car won' start, battery is ok, antifreeze is low but not out could this be the problem?


No. it wouldn't keep it from starting. If the engine cranks but won't start, probably gas or spark (ignition) related. Do you hear the fuel pump in the tank turn on for a couple of seconds, when turning key to on, not start? If you cannot hear the pump, better check if you are getting gas up to the engine. Maybe the fuel pump quit, or the pump circuit needs looked at. The pump should briefly turn on with key on to pressurize the fuel system-the fuel line and the fuel rail where the injectors are. Then the pump will turn off, and only come back on again when the engine is cranking, and stay on when running.
Correct fuel pressure is important for easy starting, and good engine performance. Have the fuel pressure checked against the specification for your vehicle. If fuel pressure is good, check the ignition system-check for spark.

Your fuel pump is getting ready to go out.Check your fuel pressure it should be 48-55 psi with key on and engine off.If its not within specs then replace the pump and filter.

have the fuel pressure and volume tested with a gage.this sounds and acts like a fuel pump problem.check the fuel filter as well and replace anyways.when it won`t start but cranks can you hear the fuel pump running.listen at the fuel filler neck with the gas cap off.if you can`t listen under the car at the fuel tank you should hear it running/if not hit the gas tank and if the car starts then the pump needs replacing.you should check to make sure you are getting spark at the spark plugs to eliminate an ignition problem but i think its fuel.

Continues cranking. Wont turn over. what s my next step?


You mean it cranks but wont start (cranking and turning over are the same thing) When cranking, rap on the fuel tank, if it then runs, the pump is bad and will need to be replaced.
