fuel pump 1998

Changed spark plugs and wires and fuel filter. Car just runs sluggish and after a bit dies out. Drives with power for few minutes then loses power. I turned to key and did not hear a buzzing noise in the rear. Could my fuel pump be going bad or something else causing it to act funky? By the way I checked throttle sensor and idol valve and they seem to be working OK. When car did not want to start I took off hose and no gas was coming out. Help please. Just want to know before I buy fuel pump

Re: fuel pump 1998

You might change the fuel pump relay, or hot wire across the power terminals to see/hear the pump.
Of course, there is more than a 1/4 tank to keep the pump submerged for cooling purpose.

Have tried the relay and the fuse. They are both good. Switched relays around and changed fuse. This car has me stomped right now..

Run a fuel pressure gauge from the rail up to the windshield. Used to do this and use the wiper blade as the holder of the gauge. See if the pressure drops below 55psi when driving. If so then its time to swap for a new.
