I am. But I'm still thinking about what I want exactly. All I know is I don't want anything goddy. I have through around the idea of buying another rear bumper cover and cutting the bitten of it off and somehow attaching it to the bottom of my stock bumper cover?

So it is getting fuel and spark, but possibly not enough of one or the other. :-k I'm wondering if it actually ran out of fuel, or just coincidentally something failed. At least the positive thing is it was at home, and you don't have a tow bill on top of this. I agree, I doubt that the low fuel is...

the spark plugs were wet and black. I replaced them and gapped them at 35. I'm checking compression and fuel pressure tonight. A thought I had is possibly the timing belt jumped time. Now I have to drive my wife's mustang to work BLah!

so if I find out that I have power going to the relay ... or not to the relay, then what? i'm going to test it right now. at the fuse its reading 12v. I checked the spark plug while I was cranking it, and it was not a constant spark. on and off on and off. I thought that it should be more constant.

do you have a shrader valve on the fuel rail? if not disconnect the fuel line at the rail and see if gas comes out the line when you prime it, or take the relay for the fp and hold it open. (obviously make sure you have something there to capture the gas with. I did that and the fuel does prime thr...

now its not reading any codes and still wont start. I've unhooked the scanner and pulled the negative cable off the battery and cleaned it. still no start and no code. GAH! I think that 0562 code probably came from me cranking on it for so long last night and today that I had to recharge it.

I found my answer. In case anyone searches this in the future, I pulled the spark plug and used a paper towel to dry up the oil. cleaned the spark plug and tube with engine degreaser. then re-installed them. I use a block of wood and a hammer to put the spark plug tube back in.
