QUESTION: the check engine on the car does not show ,its a 1999 model

Answer
Hello -

If there is no light, then the first thing i would check is the fuel pump and filter.

Remove the fuel line prerail and place in container. Turn ignition on. You should get about one cup of fuel in 3 seconds or less. Also ensure you have about 40 PSI of fuel with ignition on.

Replace fuel filter if last time it was replaced was over a year ago.

Hope this helps -
