Thanks Tom. That could be in my immediate future. My son is broken down in lot 1 at University of Maryland. We just replaced the battery, checked the alternator and the DI is relatively new. Could be a fuel pump with 132k on it. I'm going to have to go down there and check in person. I heard if you wack the fuel tank with a rubber mallet you can sometimes get an extra start or two. Is this true? where do you strike?
