Check the spark plugs.
Thanks, I'll double check, but wouldn't all 6 have to be failing for it to be a no start? With spark at each tower on the coil pack? Plus why would I have been able to start it three times, then ten min later nothing?
When was the last time the fuel filter was changed?
Not Sure. That was part of my overall plan anyway, to get it started and then replace the filter. In that order just because it's stuck on an incline and jacking might be a bit sketchy. No feelings of misfire when I crank. I don't think it's a spark issue.
When I first hooked up the fuel pressure gauge, the pressure was way low until I purged and pumped a cpl times. Then it was strong and held. It's still strong and holding now, I just don't know what changed in the 5 min it took for me to disconnect and button her up.
Thanks for the replies guys...this is extremely annoying.
