Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially and if "...can't hear the fuel pump...", can you feel swirling inside the tank through the tank body?

If yes, then possibly a broken routing hose inside the tank.

If not, then:

  • • a failed fuel pump itself;
  • • the fuel pump relay has faulted;
  • • low or missing voltage to the relay and/or pump.

All other checks would be with the use of a multi-meter.

Please post back how you would want to approach this and/or should additional information be needed.
