I can help with that.
To remove the fuel pump you do not have to drop the tank. There is an access panel that is under the rear seat bottom cushion.
The fuel pump relay is behind the glove box against the outer part of the body.
here are a few pictures to help you visualize it better.
FUEL PUMP RELAY.
Are you sure that they put regular gas and not deisel in the car?
I would check for spark as well. Thats more common than a fuel problem on those cars.
There is a quick test we can do. Typically its either the ignitor or the coil that goes. Both are inside the distributor.
Do you have a 12 volt test light available ?
Ok here is what you need to do. Remove the distirbutor cap and rotor and the plastic cover thats behind that.
On the coil you will see 2 wires held in with screws. First check the Black/Yellow wire and make sure you have 12 volts on it. If you do turn the key off and unscrew that screw that holds the Blk/Yllw to the coil.
Next take the pointed end of the test light and stick it in the hole of the connector at the end of the black/yellow wire. Than take the screw you took out and start it back in the coil. Now take the aligator clip on the test light and hook it to that screw.
Now crank the engine. The test light should do one of 2 things. Either it will glow steady or it will flash.

if there isnt any there they might be under the hood in that fuse box.
Just disconnect the one black/yellow on the coil right? no other black/yellows or other wires.
Is the test light lit when the key is in the ON position and than it goes out when you crank it?
IOK lets try this. Just chec for voltage at the black yellow when you crank the engine. So take the ground clamp off the coil and put it to a good ground. The light should be on in run and it should also be on when the key is turned to start. If that light is going out than i think you have a bad ignition switch. That black/yellow should never lose power (12volts) in the on and start positions.
Ok than from the looks of it we have a ground problem. Like i said in the previouse posts that test light trick should either flash the light or keep it on steady.
The next step is this. Remove all the wires going to the ignition control module. There will be 4 of them.
With the key in the ON position you should have power at teh black/yellow and the white/blue or blue depending on what model distributor you have.
Ok blue wire. That means you have the Hitachi distributor in that car.
Is the yellow/black wire screwed back onto the coil?
If its not re attach it and than check for 12 volts at the blue wire.
oh ok kool
