How many miles? What year? Manual or Auto?


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

Could be a fail safe to protect the pump from overheating. Did you disconnect then reconnect the battery?

Ok, it's turning over right?

Did you check the fuses?

Have you tried using the manual fuel shutoff, trying to start with it off to clear the flooding, then switching it back on?
