'97 D90 won't start

It's not the battery. I don't think it's the fuel pump as that was replaced 8 months ago. It's definitely trying to turn over but nothing happens. How do I debug if this is a fuel pump again, a starter or something else.

The second reason I don't think it's a fuel pump is because last time the fuel pump went out I could try again a few more times later and it would start. This was instantaneous non starting but it sounds just like it did when the fuel pump went out.

Not quite sure what you mean, "instantaneous non-starting".

Can you hear the fuel pump buzzing for a few seconds when you turn the key to the on position?

Garth,

Thanks for the response. When I say instantaneously not starting I mean that last year when my fuel pump went out for the week prior I could try again a few times and get it to start. This time, all of a sudden it won't start and I can't try again a few times and get it to work.

I'll see if it buzzes when I turn the key. I'll also try shooting some ether or carb cleaner into the intake. If it starts temporarily it's the fuel pump.

Amit
