On the valve assy. find and remove the 7mm screw,have someone turn on the ignition but don't crank,if gas comes out of the screw hole then the valve is bad!
Ok, I just unscrewed the little 7mm screw and turned the key to the on position. I could hear the fuel pump working (I let it run for a good 3 minutes), but I never had any gas come out.
One thing I thought of... a few months ago I put a bottle of STP fuel injection cleaner in the gastank. I figured that she had been sitting for a while, and needed a little cleaning. Could my problem be in the gas itself?
