Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma
It could be the fuel filter, fuel pump, or even the fuel relay. First check the fuel pressure using a fuel pressure meter. You will disconnect ond of the fuel lines in the engine and connect the meter. If there is no pressure at all, check the fuel relay in the fuse box engine compartment. See if wiggle it or reinserting it can get the fuel pump to work. If not you will need to replace it.
If you are getting fuel pressure and it is low, normally we replace the fuel filter. It is a cannister looking device connected in the fuel lines underneath the car. It goes in only one way according to the arrow. It is clamped to the framd and usually only clipped onto the fuel lines very tightly. You can use a scredriver to remove the clips.
If that doesn't solve the problem then you will need to replace the fuel pump. First pull out the fuel pump relay to depressurize your fuel system. Then replace the fuel pump by removing all bolts and disconnecting from the fuel line.
