The fuel pump is mounted inside the tank. First thing to check is fuel pressure at the shrader valve. If you don't have good fuel pressure then you'll have determined it is a fuel delivery issue. Check for a good power and ground at the fuel pump, if you don't have a power and ground then you'll have to trace the wiring back and find out why you don't have power. Check the fuel pump relay and fuse. If you do have a good power and ground the pump is likely bad and needs to be replaced.
