ok.. so yesterday I ran it a little low on fuel and i went to get gas today for work tomorrow and it wouldn't start. it has been taking awhile to start for the past month or so but it just won't start today at all. i put two gallons of gas in and it still won't start. i replaced the fuel fitler and it still won't start. plugs and wires done less than 20k ago and had major work done a little after that.

Anyone got any ideas for me?

Thanks in advance.

does the fuel pump still turn on? It could've burned up if you ran it dry....

i had my girlfriend turn the key to on and listened next to the fuel filler neck with the cap off and didn't hear anything. correct me if I'm wrong, but i believe that i should hear it from there. I was trying to check the SBF1 and 2 fuses but (don't make fun of me) i didn't know how to check that type of fuse.

At this point I'm just trying to figure out if its the relay, fuse, or the pump. none of which seem difficult to replace.

fuses look good. so if i have power at the pump's connector under the floor in the cargo space, then it would be the pump right?
