Just replaced the fuel...

Just replaced the fuel pump, pressure refulator, even the idle air control valve. Still no fuel to my rail... :(

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

Sry... Very distracted. On the road for work. But back at my jeep now. Think it was the original. The bottom gasket had a chunk missing out of it which was why I had low pressure to begin with, but replaced both pump and gasket.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

And pressure regulator, still no fuel to rail. Checking my hanes to see which relays to check.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Jeep?

Says 12-97'

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

So far Ive replaced the pump, its gasket and filters; the pressure regulator and even the idle air control valve... Havent been through the relays yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

About it... It was a mounting problem before now, which is why I thought it was the pump...

It's all connected but I don't have a multimeter yet. Jeep grand Cherokee loredo, straight 6, made in December 97, may be considered a 98, but that shouldn't make much difference.

When will you have a tool to test electrical?
