Hello, the fuel pump will only run to prime the fuel line for a few seconds. I dont have a good picture of what the fuel pump connections look like on this model year, if it has 3 conections to it, one is a vent, which should be a large line, then if it has a fuel supply and return line. The fuel supply will be larger than the fuel return line. You can test pressure at the fuel rail on the intake.

Do you need more help with this concern?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming you have a no start condition. As mentioned, the fuel pump should run for about two seconds when the key is first turned on. If the pump does not run it may be a pump issue or a loss of power or ground to it due to a handful of possible causes.

Have you checked for spark?

Does the fuel pump not run at all?
