135000 miles and replaced fuel pump at 110000. new battery.. just installed as truck has been parked for about six months

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

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. DO you have a 4 cyl or a 6 cyl engine? Please advise. Thanks

6 cyl

Power to the fuel pump is via the 20 amp EFI fuse...Then thru the EFI relay, which activates the CIRCUIT OPENING RELAY. The Circuit opening relay is what sends power to the fuel pump. The 20 amp EFI fuse and the EFI relay are in the fuse panel under the hood; the Circuit opening relay is near the fuse panel under the dash on the driver side.
