at first a little came out now nothing. Can you help me out? Also. I had to have the fuel pump and filter changed at 124,000.

Hello, my name is***** no fuel is coming out of the pressure port that points toward a clogged filter or worn pump, even if pump was changed at 124k the pump can still fail. At this point I'd recommend changing fuel filter and if problem still exists verify pump has good power/ground while trying to start then replace the fuel pump. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.

If it is clogged would sea foam in the gas help to clean it at all?

No the seafoam wouldn't help this situation at all. Let me know how it goes or if you run into more questions, thanks.
