05 LX My son's Element won't start. It will turn over, but does not fire. He has had intermittent problems with it not starting, especially when cold, no issues after it was going. Now it doesn't start even after several tries. I am diagnosing from 300 miles away. I had him listen to see if he could hear the fuel pump, he said he could. I had him try starting with the accelerator depressed, no luck. I also had him try unplugging the TPS and plugging back in, still no start. Could the throttle body be "dirty" enough to cause it to not start at all? Any help would be appreciated before I have to drive 300 miles or pay mechanic an ungodly amount to figure out what the problem is.
Thanks
