Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
When U turn the key to the on position (dont start it - but U can't so nvrmnd) and listen to underneath the car about at the drivers door. You should hear a buzzing noise that is the fuel pump operating.
If no noise, check the relay for the fuel pump. Located on the diagram for the fuse box located under the hood of the car.
use the wiper relay (if the wiper work) to test the fuel pump. If the car starts leave the wiper relay installed in teh fuel pump slot and drive to get U a new wiper relay.
If the fuel pump still don't kick on then its either wiring or a bad fuel pump. U can check for voltage at the tank before U buy a new pump. Abt $280 new.
Hope that helps.
If the relay swap dont
