Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? If so the fuse and pump relay should be good. Is the fuel filter 10 years old and clogged up? Do you hear the fuel pump start when cycling the ignition on and off. Probably lost a fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump. If you got fuel your no start could be a number of other ignition issues.

Need to know where the location of fuel pump is on 85 t -bird


If fuel injected- Central Fuel Injection, as I think it was, the electric pump should be in the gas tank. If still carbureted, it will have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine.

03 Dodge Stratus ran out of gas and now wont start


There is no reset.
The fuse and pump relay should be in the fuse box near the battery.
You may have to disconnect the filter or the rail to let the air out of the system. And you may have plugged up the screen in the tank.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.
