turn the key don't start it ( KOEO) listen for the fuel pump to prime the system , shut it off , do it again , and then see if it starts try an octane booster , don't run it dry , it's not good

I did try that but no good. Wat else ya gt


check for proper spark and fuel pressure and if the injectors are firing correctly


If the engine runs briefly when using starting fluid - but then dies - you could have a clogged fuel filter.
