It almost seems like it is a fuel prob, i dont smell fuel after cranking and the pump doesnt seem like it cycles with the key, fraction of a second maybe. Is there something that could cause a fuel issue after tranny overheating or is this a total coinsidance? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Oh i did swap fuel pump and asd relays and no change
wow, that is some situation you are having.... i don't really have an idea myself of what the problem may be in your case, but i would start out with doing a fuel pressure test to well make sure it isn't related to fuel.
are you throwing any codes or anything? i am wondering if maybe your computer died... or maybe a short somewhere or something. it is just odd that it would just up and die like that, certainly fuel pump issue would do it or hect busted fuel line, but you say you don't smell any fuel so there goes that theory.
