Do not overlook the ignition switch. They do fail on these cars.

Yes, possible.
Has this filter been changed recently? Hooked up wrong?

Remember the pressure regulator is in the filter too, and that may be broken.
So replace the filter too.

Have you worked thru the no start testing yet?
See pages four thru six.
