Do you get the WTS light?

Do the rpm's move when you're cranking?

Was the CPS the one of the old black ones, or a newer gray one?

Just a few questions to give the techs here a little more info. They'lll be around soon.

Is there oil in the hpop reservoir? Drain the fuel bowl, turn the key on. Do you hear the fuel pump come on? Does the fuel bowl fill back up? Check all fuses.

Did you scan for codes?

The reservoir is what the black plastic piece on top of the engine mounts to. Is there fuel in the bowl? Do you hear the fuel pump come on and pressurize?

No codes show up.I didn't pull top off fuel bowl to check on fuel level but I just had truck running. Is the allen head plug for the reservoir level?
