Ok do you hear the pump run when you turn the key to the run position, It should run for a few second's. If not maybe an electrical issue. If it does and you have no pressure probably a bad pump or regulator. I'm pretty sure it is in the tank and part of the pump assembly. Also don't overlook a blocked fuel filter. http://www.kiatechinfo.com/ for service info. good luck, Reguard's Ronjohn

Could this be a timing issue or would I not get compression if so?
