I am getting fuel to the bowl that the filter goes in but dont seem to fuel beyond that, there is only one tank and i can hear the pump running, and i took off the filter and when the key was turned on it was filling up the bowl that the filter goes into. Is there a way to test the injector pump or are there any relays for it? and where is the fues for it?

If this situation occurs after a period of time then check the tank vent correctly at the vent valve on top of the tank. If it occurs reasonably quickly then check the fuel return lines from the injectors to the tank for obstruction ,kinks ,squashed etc preventing the fuel free access to the tank. check the pressure regulator to the pump is holding sufficient pressure to maintain pressure to the pumpin the pump
The fuel filter is located on the drivers side of the car about halfway between the front and back wheel. Look just underneath the doors and follow the fuel line until you run into the filter.
You just need a couple of crescent wrenches to remove it. While you have the fuel filter off, turn the ignition on but dont crank the car then have a look to see if any fuel sprayed out. Put a rubber hose over the end going into some kind of container if you want to be neat about it. Just to be sure the fuel pump is working.
Check the fuse for the fuel pump under dash fuse panel...its a red plastic one 10 amp if good turn off all electrical like radio fan etc....real QUIET.... turn on the key.... do you hear the electric fuel pump sort of a whirring noise then it stops quickly( a few seconds)
if you do hear it then have the fuel filter checked for clogging/dirt contamination in the tank...drain flush tank replace fuel filter clean injectors with a flush madditive to a tank of fuel.
If you dont hear the pump have the fuel pump relay tested underhood fuse box, if ok drop the tank and replace the fuel pump you may want to replace the relay as well for safeties sake later on.
sounds like a fuel tank inspection/flush or replacement is on the horizon.... sometimes dirty fuel has contaminated your tank or the tank itself is rusting from the inside out... either way it needs to be addressed... drain the tank analyse what gets drained for particles and water...send the tank to a radiator shop for a complete boil out/inspection....blow out the lines and replace the filter again along with the fuel bowl etc. after that all should be well?
You hit the nail on the head. Chances are the sending unit filter "sock" is clogged. Most of the time you can clear it by blowing compressed air back through the tank.
I would however, inspect the suction line from the fuel pump to the tank for rust obstruction and hoses for de-lamination.
Disconnect the line just before it goes into the tank and try to blow air through it just to make sure it is not rusted shut.
Good luck, let me know.
