Best Answer

Try to prime the vehicle. 3.1L are very picky about their fuel presure. Do the following. Put your key in the ignition, turn to the RUN position, without starting, you should hear you fuel pump kick in. Turn it back off, and do it again.. do this 5-7 times. What this is doing is Priming your vehicle, removing the air from the lines, and rebuilding the presure in your fuel rail and injectors. When your vehicle starts, it may shake horribly, and might kill. Prime 1-3 more times, then re-start, and you should be golden. ;)

AnswerA reset switch is to start something totally over. If a water heater stops heating, you can use the reset switch to start it working all over and see if there is a further problem.In computer hardware, which is the category you listed this question in, there is no reset switch on most modern computes. There is a power on/off switch, and you can restart the computer. On some older computers there is a reset button on the motherboard.

You need three things to start an engine. Gas, spark and air but, they all have to be in the right place at the right time. So, I would say you have a timing problem. It may be something serious or it may be something less serious like an engine compter or something like that.
