Question about 2003 Lexus IS 300
Went to turn over my 2003 Lexus is300 and it wouldn't start. It has been in my garage for some time, but I did just have it out and drove it about 2 weeks ago, and also put fresh 93 octane gas in at this time. I went to start it and after attempting to start it a few times, I just couldn't get it to run. I then charged the battery to make sure it was fully charged, and tried it again today but same problem.
If i were to hold the ignition 'on' when starting it, it almost feels as if it is going to run but just dies right out. I'm guessing it may be the fuel pump. I've checked most of the fuses in my engine bay (not in the cabin though). If the fuel pump is good, should it emit a noise when running? Or is it silent?
Also, it is a 5-speed with LSD if that matters.
If possible drain the fuel use a normal grade fuel and check if its starts the car
, also start the car you will hear the fuel making noise in rear seat if listen carefully there is no noise then its a faulty fuel pump...
