Hello. You should have the vehicle checked for loss of fuel pressure. If you have no fuel pressure, then inspect the fuel pump connection and check for power to the pump. If you have power to the fuel pump, then replace the fuel pump and fuel filter and retest. If you would like an expert to inspect the car before doing any repairs, have a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the no-start.
