91 festiva - does not start

91 Festiva does not start. We think it may be a fuel pump problem.
The engine turns over but does not start. What type of fuel pump does this take. How is it done? (I have been told there is place in back of the rear seat to get at the fuel pump.

My 1991 ford festiva wont crank replaced fuel pump and screen and fuel filter and fuel pump relay still wont crank and we have pushed the reset button what now help pls

Won't crank? Problem is with starter-have it tested.
If it cranks and won't start, check for spark at one of the spark plug wires. If no spark when the engine is cranking, the ignition circuit is the problem.
