    No start

    09 ACR, 5k miles
    Few days ago, I went to start it, sputtered slightly then normal
    Yesterday, sputtered for maybe 2 sec. then normal. Made a couple of stops on my cruise and started normal every time.
    This morning, sputtered for maybe 3 sec. and died. Tried again, cranks normal, has never cranked slow. Turned ignition off, and tried again without cranking motor and heard one click, I listened for priming from pump but nope. Repeated but the same.
    Pump died? A relay? Sending unit?
    What do yall think. Thanks

    Lots to consider is differential diagnosis here. I have a lot of questions to ask while working through the possibilities...preferably from simple, non-invasive things to the more complex issues if necessary. Quickest way is a phone call...so, feel free to call me if you are so inclined. 317-402-9013
