Question about 1992 Geo Tracker
Car sat for years , think it's the fuel pump , can't here the pump come on and not pumping gas to motor but some gas in the line
I have a 1992.
1) Verify the fuel pump relay is operating. When you turn the key full on, but not starting, do you hear a relay click on, then off after 2 seconds? That's the fuel system charging initially, then reaching pressure and turning off. If not hearing, check fuses, proceed to 2.
2) If you remove the gas cap and place your ear close, and don't hear a whir inside the fuel filler neck (have friend do the initial key on (but not running starter)...but do hear relay...then maybe is pump.
Note you can still hear a whir and have a bad pump...listen for quietness, and smoothness. Mine went bad, car ran at idle, badly at speed. Pump still ran but sounded wounded, made vibration.
3) This is not your situation since it starts but if you don't hear relay, don't hear pump, won't start, it seems like all is dead, then after verifying good battery and fuses, suspect ECM potentially.
Fuel pump: best is OEM but universal ones suited for this vehicle are available on ebay for not too much if you are handy with a soldering iron. Always replace the intake filters.
Dropping the tank is not too hard, but a) disconnect battery first, and b) try to siphon it first if it has a lot of gas (your fuel might be in bad condition if sitting around too long though). Haynes manual is somewhat helpful here. There are some screws up top going around a ring, remove those and it just pulls out. Take care working around fuel and vapors. I have had an aftermarket pump working 2 years now, was $25. I also try not to run the fuel too low like I used to, that can overheat the pump.

SOURCE: 1992 geo tracker will not run
The ECM has a blown capacitor inside it for opening the injector you will most likly need to get it rebuilt, buy a new ,or used ECM had the same problem with my sidekick.

91 , is 8v motor. know it well and have full docs on it.
rolling it off , 5sp push starting dumping clutch. yes.
you forgot to say the magic words.
does it crank on its own , robustly.
,any engine will run with out a starter.
you need to elaborate on the symptoms.;
you forgot to say how you started car with test fuel.
how far did you go , with push start, 1 mile , 50 miles?
im going to guess this is a NO CRANK car.
here is my nocrank page.
this is a solution.
all posts on this system are all lacking proper symptoms.

i dont think you do remove the back seat and right under there should be some screws or bolts with wires connected to the fuel pump removing the bolts should do the job
