Newb do you even read or do you just have ADHD? If you would have read the thread, I think you will see the problem has been identified and is not a problem with the car.

Also disconnecting the MAF is not really a solution or test for most no start situations.

So, this morning I had it towed to the shop and my mechanic pumped out roughly a 50/50 gas to water solution. Unbelievable. The gas station is going to pay for the repairs so all should be well.

I appreciate the help guys.

Make sure the shop CLEARLY documents what happened and what they found.

Key piece of info, fuel tank was full when towed in AND how much cocktail had to be pumped out of the tank.

Have the fuel filter replaced and bill that to the gas station along with the rest of the work.

They have insurance for things like this anyway.
