drove to store, car ran great. when I returned my car would not start. starter turned over motor but fuel pump was not cycling at all. I need a schematic for fuel system as well as loation of fuel pump relay, fuses and any testing ports.

I had to remove the fuse. is there a shorted switch in the ignition causing this?

Took complete headlight and hooked it up to passenger side and it works. Have checked fuses and wires with volt meter and they are all fine. Getting power to the headlight socket and have checked ground wire.

I was driving home from work and the eng quit running out of know where without any signs or warning. I luckily coasted all the way to my driveway and had put the car in neutral and tried to start it as I was coasting. It would only crank over but not start up. So I waited until I could put it in park to try it and still it will only crank over but won't start up. The car has a 3.0L eng in it and did seem to accelerate really slow and would have a rough idle every now and again and the fuel mileage seemed to be really poor of I filled it up I would only get like 275 miles on a tank of gas and that was strictly highway driving at only 75 mph. It just didn't seem to have the power that it should have but it's been this way since the car was given to me. The car was well taken car of as there isn't any rust spot on it whatsoever. The maintenance was always kept up on as well. But now I can't get it to start and before I start buying and replacing parts to try and figure it out I decided I would ask tkosee if anyone else has had this problem.
When first started it acts like a carburated motor that needs choked, wants to die but doesn't,as it warms up it idles a little better, then driving on highway it skips like its going to stall but but not all the time,I have changed the ignition module,the integrated control module,and checked the timing,new air and fuel filters, no improvement,any help would be appreciated.
