Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If there is no fuel pressure the most likely cause would be the pump itself but it could be a loss of power or ground to the pump. Loss of power or ground could be a wiring or connection issue, possibly a fuel pump relay or power distribution issue depending on what the vehicle is.

What year and model is the vehicle?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
1998 sebring convertible. I banged on the gas tank and the car started. Would that be the reason it stalls out occasionally?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.

Yes, if the fuel pump stops running then the engine will die. If hitting the tank for sure allowed the engine to start then the pump will need to be replaced.

I am going to change the fuel pump tomorrow. How would I test the ground?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.

An incandescent test light would be used to test the power and ground feed at the pump connector.
