    we checked the fuel line and it wasn't going off at all, we checked the fuel pump relay and fuse before we replace the fuel pump. now the brand new fuel pump has been installed correctly but it still doesn't shoot any gas. We also did verify the pump it was the right replacement. we put gas into the throttle body and it start right up. now we are not sure what the problem is now.

Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? How about spark at the spark plugs? There are many things on a fuel injected vehicle that could cause it to not start. Honestly I can name 10 off top of my head and as you have already found out, it could just end up being a endless money pit. How did you determine there was a problem with the fuel pump? If you can provide more detailed information myself or one of the other Auto Technicians here could possibily give you some guidance..
Hope this helps
Sincerely
Roger

    On that model ford, the fuel pump relay is powered by the ECC/PCM relay.. I have seen alot of times that the EEC relay will go bad thus not powering the fuel pump relay and it will leave alot of people standing around scratching their heads.. Check that and post back.. I cant recall if there is another relay you can just swap with the ac relay or something to see if it will start.. Cycle the key 3 times before starting...
    Let me know

    one other thing, fords have a saftey cutout switch that cuts the veh fuel pump in case of accident. It will either be located in the back of the explorer in the compartment where the jack is kept. or its on the passenger side under the dash behine the kick panel. It is a black box about the size of a pack of cigerettes and has a red recessed button on the top. Press that red button down and if it moves then try to start..

1997 chevy makibu wont start tries to but wont start sometimes it will start other times it wont then it ill start n die in a few seconds whats wrong with it


I suspect that your fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Fuel pump may be faulty. Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

Daewoo nubira 1998 wagon wont start after replacing fuel pump


Once the fuel pump was replaced, the chances are the released dirt particles from the fuel pump lines went to the fuel filter and clogged it. Change the fuel filter.

Did you try to replace the starter cable? is the Truck turning over or just clicking.? If it's turning over and not starting. Best guess would be one of two things. Knock sensors Located under intake manifold. they get wet and deteriorate or the fuel pump. I've replaced all three on mine. 233k still running strong...
