    What is the fuel pressure reading? If you don't have volume also it will die. You can have pressure but if you have low or no volume then you have a bad pump.
    This year model also has a problem with the fuel pump connector burning out. After all it is only 21 years old.
    The part number from napa for the connector is ECHLIN line #FPC100

    Please read what I posted. What is the volume. You should have One ounce for every 10 seconds at least.

    It requires a professional fuel pressure test gauge. There is also a procedure to perform this test. If you want more help contact me at jmgrhm30@gmail.com.
