Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

My 1993 Oldsmobile cutless ciera wont start

When I turn the ignition on it turns but doesn't start. I had a friend look at it and he checked to see if it was the fuel pump. When I turn the key for the battery, I don't hear the fuel pump "buzz" before cranking the ignition. My friend had some ether and sprayed the carburetor and the car started up but when he stopped spraying, the car died. He thinks it is the fuel pump. The gas hand indicates that there is 1/4 full of gas, so I know that its not a gas leak. He also suggested that it could be a bad relay that connects to the fuel pump. Hopefully it might be a bad fuel filter that just needs replacing. With these symptoms, do you think its the fuel pump also??

If you are not hearing the buzz the fuel pump is not engaging if you have a test light or a power probe test the power wire going to the pump using the "quick connect" if you have power going in to the pump and have no noise the pump is bad. If you don't have power then test the fuel pump relay and fuse. an easy test is to pull the relay located under the hood and switch with one of the ones next to it turn the key and listen for the pump if you have no noise the relay is more than likely ok check the fuse. To test the fuse use the test light because you can't always see a broken fuse and you want to see if you have power coming in. check all the connections listed above for corrosion and improper space between terminals If I was a betting man I would go with a bad fuel pump judging on the year I assume it has quite a few miles and fuel pumps burn out with use. any time you replace a fuel pump you should replace the fuel filter. this filter almost never gets changed and tends to rust so make sure you have plenty of penetrating oil handy. do not use heat obviously.

It is possible
With engine cold for any car try this
Loosen fuel line before filter (BE CAREFUL AND DO THIS SLOWLY IN CASE THERE IS PRESSURE IN THE LINE)
Have someone turn on the key and see if any fuel escapes (DO NOT REMOVE LINE COMPLETELY)
If there is fuel it is probably the filter
