will not start, does crank well?

by Colin
(Lafayette,IN)

2003 33K miles, will crank on the starter real strong but will not start, no trouble codes stored, nothing has been done to this car mechanically recently, past few weeks has become more difficult to start but has run great once it does?

Spark

If you have spark I would not suspect a security system fault. The next thing I would look at is the fuel pressure on the fuel rail. It should be about 56-60 psi. Actron CP7838 Professional Fuel Pressure Tester
