Hi , Could the injectors be good since the car started for a bit when i used starting fluid? would they not have to open to let the starting fluid inside the cylinders? i ordered a fuel pump tester and am scoping around for more info on checking all the grounds. thanks againThe pump pressurizes the fuel lines & fuel rail to about 50 psi (345 kPa). If you can hear the pump 'whirr' in the back when you first go to the 'run' position, the pump is probably OK.
Are you sure the car has gas in it? (Don't laugh). The tank design is a 'saddle' style. It has a right & left side. The exhaust & propeller shaft (AWD) pass under the middle. Fuel is supposed to siphon from the right side to the left side as needed to keep the halves fairly equal.
There are fuel level senders on both sides. The BCM averages these 2 amounts and displays the result on the fuel gauge.
If it no longer siphons, your gauge can tell you that you have gas in the one side while the pump-side is sucking air. Try adding some fuel?
All of the injectors have 12 volts on one side when the ignition is turned on. The PCM fires each injector when needed for a spritz of fuel to that cylinder on the intake stroke. If the PCM doesn't provide a ground. The injectors can stay closed & the result is no-gas. You can have a good pump & good pressure, but the closed injectors means that there is no fuel getting into engine. Is the anti-theft security system active? It should be a red dot in the instrument cluster.
