Question about Cars & Trucks
There is enough fuel,we have put some fuel into the chambers and it does start but switches off after running for 1 minute only. According to my understanding the fuel is not being pumped from the fuel pump to the injectors.
I'm not a professional mechanic but the fuel pump does that and it has to have a clean fuel filter to do it effectively.

you may need to run a wire from a keyed ignition source that has power while cranking and running to the fuel pump relay and bypass the pcm to test wether it will run, if it runs put a more permanent wire in place.Not too sure what tests youve done but it seems that fuel is what your focusing on so a quick test is too spray engine start up the intake tube to see if the engine trys to run if it does it eliminates a lot of other potential reasons for a no start condition.Also try squeezing the fuel return line to see if the added pressure will try to make engine run.Could be time to replace fuel pump etc anyway let me know how it goes good luck with it

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?

If the oil pressure switch has two wires on it it may be one that shuts down the pump. I'm not positive but I think it completes a ground circuit, not the hot side though (but may run through a relay.) There should be a pump relay under the hood with a group of other relays. I don't have a wiring diagram for your car but you can get a basic diagram in most inexpensive manuals. They wont usually give you locations but at least you can get an idea of how the system works. There usually is a fuse. If the fuse block is not labeled, use a test light and probe the back of every fuse for power with the key on (takes about ten minutes and faster than trying to find info) change any that are blown. The most likely culprit is a relay, so after testing fuses look for it. (usually on drivers fender or on right side near firewall.) Worst case, trace the power lead all the way through the harness 'till you find where power begins.Testing is important here...I could give you much better info if I was there to do it for you. Most important is to stay "on track" till you find the place where power ends. Don't jump all over the place or you will end up doing an incomplete test.

Check to see if the inertia switch is tripped first. Read your owner manual for location and how to reset. Just push the button. It usually only trips in an accident to shut off the fule pump in case there is a leak.
here is how to replace the pump. It's good because you don't have to drop the tank!
Remove the gas cap.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.
Not a bad job. buy pump on ebay or new at discount at tascafordparts.com
