fuel pump delima

Greetings boyz your tard P-Car Regular here...

Okay, so I had a bad back injury and my car sat for about 2 1/2 weeks... I had my girl on trickle charge and all was good. The day came when I could actually get inside her (don't get all upside down, you know what I mean) any she was turning over strong but would not fire. I could not here my front fuel pump so I knew there was an issue. Keep in mind I just had the front front fuel pump replaced. So I changed out fuel pump relays I & II plus the fuel pump fuse, and still no fire. I tested the electrical and if I grounded it... it indicated power to the pump but still no fire when removed.

So gent respectively I ask respectfully... what the ***** is my major malfunction?

Check and make sure you have fire by pulling the coil wire to see if there is a spark.

If that's good, I'd pull the blue connector off the back of the air metering plate. Try to crank the engine.

With the key on, you should hear the pumps fire up immediately when you pull that connector off. At that point, crank the engine over and she should start. If not, then it's not fuel related.

I don't think I was clear due to a typo... the problem is that I do not hear the front pump fire at all... silence. Maybe I'm in denial that the new fuel pump is bad.

Can you jump the 30 and 87 connections (IIRC) at the front relay to get it to run? Otherwise, I'd check the wiring to and possibly run a new wire to it.
