Need you guys to double check me..

Ok guys I had my car parked for few months due to a bad pilot bearing and me not having time to fix it. Well finally I just got her done yesterday, so far all good, but I fixed a problem for another one to pop out... after the job got done I drove my car for a few miles, and when I got back home the car just shut down on me. I checked the fuel pressure plug, and pressed the little pin on the fuel rails plug and no gas comes out. The car only starts with starter fluid, but just for a little while, then shuts down again. Im thinking my fuel pump just went bad on me. What you guys think?

What about the fuel pump impact cutoff in the trunk. Have you checked to make sure it's not tripped?

When you turn the key to run (but not start), do you hear the fuel pump kick on for a few seconds?

i don't hear it. Does it sounds exactly as an F150? Cause if it does then I can't hear it.

Should sound really similar if not exactly... it's basically the only sound you hear if you turn the car from off to run (unless it chimes or something). if you want to be sure, you can throw a mechanical gauge on it and confirm no or low pressure.

There are just a few components... I'd check that inertia switch in the trunk first (on driver's side against rear wall). It's just a red button.

If you press that and it doesn't fix it, check the fuse and also listen for the relay click that should power the pump. If you hear a click but no pump kick on, then the problem is after the relay. If you hear no click at all, then the problem is before it.
