Hello my cater has beed starting then after I drive it won't start again . It's been doing this for 2 weeks know I saw on here about changing the CPS so I did but still starts drive but when I shut it off it won't start just cranks like it doesn't have any gas going to the engine . Well my buddy came over read my codes it said O2 senser 1 bank 1 . So will this really make my car not start cause to me it feels like the gas lines are clog or like I said no gas is getting to the engine . I sprayed engine starter but it starts but dies then just turns over but no gas. Well any I deas I though about the fuel pump but I though once they go they go ! Thanks in advance !

The O2 sensor isn't causing your no start issue.
Next time the car won't start, remove the gas cap, put your ear to the opening, and have a friend turn the key to the ON position. Do you hear the fuel pump whirring? Better yet, hook a fuel pressure gauge up to it next time it won't start.

I did do that and I did not here a thing but I was told that the fuel pump does not stop then start I heard once it dies it dies . But ya I did not here anything no swirl or nothing so maybe it is the fuel pump I will check again in the morning I was tired at the time I call some freinds to ask ther opinion if they hear it ! I must say also now it wont even crank on it use to turn on but die now just the start cranks ! thanks
