Check your fuel pump relays.
There is a trick i have found with the relays.
The correct one for fuel pump is RED not BLACK.
Blackone would not work for the fuel pump and make sure you do not use aftermarket relays.

Fuel pump is working, but it has to deliver a correct rate to maintain correct pressure in order for the Fuel distributor work. The car was fires shortly since there is some fuel at initial burst, since the rate is low so pressure could not be maintained in the line to continuously support the distributor. Need to replace the pump and the fuel accumulator.

No power to fuel pump car was running fine just quit repalced fuel pump no power to pump, car will start when spraying starting fluid in to intake, is there a fuse ? also replaced ECM, fuel filter,...

Check for 12 volts power at the fuel pump harness. If no power is going to the pump, check the fuel pump relay. Also, check the fuel pump inertia switch. Ford usually has it on either inside left or right rear trunk fenders.

2000 dodge durango trys to start and cuts right back off. Fuel fiter been changed and it is firing at the cap. Is it the fuel pump

make sure that your battery is good, put a multimeter on it, make sure you have over 12 volts on it and start it and see where the voltage drops to. If it drops below 11 volts, you have a weak battery, It should actually never drop below 12, If good, check your relay for the fuel pump. There are several that are the same in the relay panel. Driver side in engine compartment. Swap relay with another and start.

Mercury Topaz loses power while driving, and stalls out

Check fuel pressure. Sounds like a bad pump or plugged fuel filter.
