Question about Cars & Trucks
Two things to check
fuel filter - make sure it is not plugged.
then make sure fuel pump is pumping.
easiest way is to dis connect between pump and filter.
see if pump pressures line.
if so, reconnect and dis connect fuel line after filter, see if you have pressure.

try the fuel filter and make sure you have proper oil pressure!! Remeber if you have tried craking to many bad times then the plugs are going to be fouled out!! Means that they are going to be drowned with gas and need replacing!! Also make sure your fuel pump is coming on!! You should hear a hissin or a hummin noise back from the fuel tank!

probably becuase its faulty...try replacing it and go from there...or else there is another source of resistance in the circuit some where....also, check your fuses....a blown fuse will stop flow of current as well.

I believe this is a manual fuel pump and you may have lost the prime, no fuel in hose to tank. If the hose from rear frame to tank has a break or hole, it will **** air and not fuel from tank. If this is not the case, possible clogged fuel hose, tubing, or pickup tube in tank assuming you have turned the engine over serveral times and there is enough fuel in tank. Some tanks do not pickup from very bottom because of water laying in bottom of tank from condensation.

Possible that there is an AIR LOCK and so you will need to bleed off the air within for the fuel to flow into the pump. So remove the fuel line and allow fuel to flow or blow into the fuel tank.( must **** out the fuel )
once the fuel comes over the pump will hold on.
Next time make sure that the tank does not run dry.

Testimonial: "Very helpfull except didn't tell were I was suppose to remove fuel line."
I have seen this problem several times. The EVAP Purge Solenoid in the engine compartment is sticking open. When you refuel your vehicle, the open solenoid is allowing fumes from the fuel tank to flood the intake manifold with fumes. This is what is keeping your engine from starting...too much fuel and very little air. Most of the time your check engine light will also be coming on while you are driving your vehicle and the code that sets will say "P0441 Evaporative Emission System Incorrect Purge Flow" or there will be some other manufacturer-specific code or code description that will read something like "Purge Detected During Non-Purge" or "Purge Control Valve Stuck Open". However, I have also seen this happen without setting any codes at all (also see below). In each case that I have encountered, replacing the purge valve fixed the problem.
Also make sure your engine is turned off and the ignition switch is in the OFF or LOCK position when refueling. I have also seen this caused when somebody turns the engine off, then turns the ignition back to the ON position so passengers can "listen to the stereo" during the refueling process. This can cause the computer to open the purge valve during refueling. When it happens this way, there will be no fault codes stored and no repairs need to be made to the vehicle.

Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they get loud or stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.
It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.
If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.
