Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
In what order do the seals have to be put back in the plastic clips that attach to the fuel pump.We had it all back together and connected and when we started the car gas was pouring out of the lines connecting to the fuel pump. is there a particular order they must be put back in? theres like 3 seals per clip.

As far as I know, that clip is not replaceable... (called a quick disconnect).
The entire tube assembly may be, and likely can be done by any decent radiator shop. Assuming the end part that broke is the radiator end. Otherwise, you will need to get a replacement line either from a dealer or from a scrapyard. There may be several "jury rig" options you could use to make a repair, but I don't recommend doing that there because of the location.(tight and difficult to reach) Jury rig is fine for stuck in the woods situations...do it right if you're home.

You have to check for spark and fuel pressure. The 3800 motor can have a bad module (sits right below the coil pack, as well as bad coils. Also check for fuel pressure. I put a brand new dealer pump in a 93 Olds once and it was not putting out enough pressure to engage the injectors. Section 4 in a Hayes manual found at most Advance and Auto zone stores will give you the fuel pressure reading you need.
Hope this helps.

You have many option on the fuel return line you can take out the shrader valve on the fuel return line or disconnect the return line or even disconnect the fuel filter as for the relay you can go directly to it or through its DLC connection or even its fuel pressure inspection line it is a single wire with a green tab attached to nothing find it it either near the battery or the brake master cyclinder to activate it apply ground with key on . or go to the fuel relay remove the cover expose the relay and install and collapse the swith to make contact with key on and the pump will turn on.

Test the fuel pressure. Should be 60 psi I believe. Remove gas cap and listen for sucking sound. Should not be any. If there is, then purge valve bad.
