Sounds like you off easy with the pump. Could just be a clog or some water. Some things to remember before you go back:
1) Was it producing large amounts of steam or smoke from exhaust? A strong antifreeze smell means head gasket. This will rob you of all power. Since you will get back when it is cold, before you turn it on, smell the exhaust pipe for antifreeze. If there are any of those symptoms, get it towed where you can do some major work.
2) If no smoke or steam from exhaust, and if you are certain it is not the drive train, know where the fuel filter is and what it would take to do it along side the road (Many need special tools to remove). If more than a few seconds work and your along side the road, have it moved somewhere safe (remember, a car broken down along side the road is more likely to collect other cars than other where else). Since you just filled up, buy a siphon and some gas cans, take a bottle of "HEET" and "Sea Foam" to put in the tank. They both control H2O if you picked any up at the last fill up and start at replacing the fuel filter.
Please be advised the fuel pump only is powered while the engine is being cranked or has started. Are you still sure the pump has no power? The relay and fuel pump cutoff crash switch or under the hood near the battery in a black box.
you may have a bad fuel pump in the tank that will need to be changed.the only way to see if the pressure is good is to have it checked out with a pressure gauge.if the fuel filter had alot of dirt in it then its a good indication the pump is bad as it had to pump that dirt to the filter.
You should check out www.reliable-store.com they have info on repair, service, wiring diagram, electrical diagram, fuse diagram, troubleshooting, PCV,
owner's/service/repair/parts manual, fault codes, error codes, etc everything on all vehicles. must check it out
Check fuel flter at fuel pick-up intank (looks like a small wire sock). Remove fuel filter and fitting at fuel rail. Blow out fuel lines w/about 35lbs air press. Ck electrical @ relay - should be 4 connectors - one is key on hot/one is always hot/one is ground and last is hot to fuel pump. Good Luck
Try checking the fuel filter or the fuel pump. Sometimes if you run the fuel until it is almost empty, it pulls debri off the bottom of the fuel tank and it gets stuck in the fuel filter. It them starves your engine for fuel. Sometimes if you bang on the fuel pump, it will loosen some of this debri, and the vehicle may start, or you may just need to replace the whole fuel pump.
