It's quite possible you burned out the fuel pump. The fuel pump relies on a constant flow of gasoline to cool it. Unfortunately, you have to drop the tank to access the fuel pump, but is a fairly easy fix for an avid do-it-youselfer. Before you go to that length, though, try having someone stand by rear of the car and listen for the "whirr" of the fuel pump when you turn the key to the "RUN" position. (not "START", just "RUN") If they can hear the pump, try turning the key off and on about 5 times to re-pressurize the fuel system before attempting to start the engine. Hope this helps a little and your problem is not too severe. Best of luck!
you should not have to sypon the fuel just locate the fuse that controls the fuel pump pull it out and start the car when it stops there will be no pressure in any line. you should be able to remove the fuel pump without any trouble then
it doesnt hold pressure the pump primes it straight away but on teh end of the fuel rail is a vacumn operated valve that allows the build up of pressure required and if the vacumn pipe or the diaphgram is perished then thats your problem
The sound you are describing is the fuel pump. When you first turn the key to the on position, the fuel pump pressurizes the system. This could be fix by replacing the fuel pump or even something more simple like a fuse to they fuel pump relay or the inertia switch that some vehicles are equipped with has tripped, which in this case, it's usually located in the trunk, behind the carpet, on the sides of the vehicle. It will have a small button that can be pushed back in. Hope this helps direct you in the right direction and good luck!
