Question about 1999 Dodge Stratus
Sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it started but i don't want to spend the 235$ on a pump if i don't know for sure if its bad or not.
On the fuel rail located on the top of motor there is a access port to screw on a pressure tester aquire a pressure gauge depressurize the fuelsystemor just let the car sit for an hour or longer without running, remove the protective cap on fuel rail access valve then screw on pressure tester gauge turn the key on to the position just before start the pressure gauge should read between 30-40 psi of pressure any thing below 30 psi relace the pump. If you want to just check to see if the pump runs have and assistant sit in the driver seat while you bend down and position you head toward the gas tank have the assistant turn the key one and listen for the sound of the fuel pump it should stay one for a few seconds then shut off after attaining the proper pressure in line do this if you can't afford the pressure gauge. I f the pump runs but continues to run the fuel pressure regulator may be bad.

Have you checked the fuel pump relay with an ohmmeter/multi-tester? You will have to follow the power lines to find it. I would check the relay first. Then check fuel rail fuel pressure. It may be faulty fuel pressure regulator or a sensor. Is your check engine light on? If so, I would have the codes read to pinpoint exact problem location. Check your spark to make sure each plug is firing.
If you want more info let me know.
