If it hasn't run in a couple years, I would use a "test light" and check for power at the plug-in for the fuel pump. If ther's no power I would run a wire from the battery straight to the fuel pump itself. If the pump doesn't turn on you will have to replace the pump. If this starts it. If this makes it work you could put a fuse in the wire and hook it under the hood to any wire that has power when you turn on the key.
If you are trying to get it running again after 2 years it might be a good idea to pick up a Haynes manual for the car. They're only about $20 and have a lot of useful help for the DIYer doing average repairs. Hope this helps.
Looks like that you have a faulty fuel pump. If the fuel pump is faulty it won't supply fuel to the engine which may cause it not to start though you have a good spark. I strongly suggest that you have the fuel pump replaced to resolve the problem.
Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
****,squeeze, bang, Blow. That is what is required for a motor to operate. If you are getting fuel and current for the bang then the only thing left is the squeeze and blow which would be your compression. Have to make sure that the timing belt was timed properly to operate the valves to allow for compression. Hope this helps and have a good day.
Locate the Fuse Relay box under the Hood. In this Box are Relays for a lot of things one Being the Fuel Pump. Replace the Fue; Pump Relay and Check the Fuel Filter and Fuel Pump. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
I had this same problem with my 1997 Blazer, which required a fuel pump replacement as Nitrobike said. The sign to look for is when you get in the Blazer, turn your key forward to the accessory position, but not the start position. You should hear the fuel pump charging. It sounds like a hissing or whirring noise for about 2-3 seconds while it pumps fuel into the lines to prime the engine.
Fuel pump replacement isn't cheap, about $700-$1000.
