1996 Saturn SL2 Question: fuel pump



italion stallion, 1.9L 4 Cylinder DOHC, Phoenix, AZ, February 08, 2011, 16:37

I purchased a Saturn that has been setting for a year and a half and I dissconnected the fuel line forward of the tank in front of the left rear tire. I need to pump the old gas from the tank, but when I turned the ignition on nothing happened. I checked the 10 amp fuse and it is fine. Any ideas?

    It's likely that the bad gas rotted the fuel lines and electrical in the tank

    I was told the pump will not run without a signal from the engine running.
