Customer Question
I have an 89...

I have an 89 s10 with the 2.8 v6 and my fuel pump is not working.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your car been stalling?

Nope, just went out to start it yesterday and the fuel pump did not start. Drove just fine on sat

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S10 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've been trying to find out where the fuel pump relay and/or fuse is so I can check them.
