Turns over will not start ...need help.

I just purchased a 95 SE, with 80k on the odo. One owner car that's been sitting under a tree for almost 3 years. I bought a new battery, some fresh gas but it won't start. The engine tuns over but does not fire up. I tried listening for the fuel pump but I cannot hear anything. What should I check 1st? What's an easy way to check the spark, fuel etc? TIA

Re: Turns over will not start ...need help.

Starter works fine....it is cranking. I just pulled out the main relay and re-soldered all the contacts....still no fuel pump noise. I hear the relay clicking so I am assuming it is good.

Re: Turns over will not start ...need help.

Now comes the fun and obvious. Time to check your fuel pump's condition. From what I understand it's accessible through the rear seat area but as I haven't had to fiddle around with it yet I'm not 100% on that one.

Re: Turns over will not start ...need help.

Just tested the fuel pump power....it is getting 12v upon ignition. FUEL pump dead. Where is a good place to purchase one? I found a bunch on ebay however don't know which one is good. Not looking for the best just one that will do the job.

Re: Turns over will not start ...need help.

the fuel pump is right under the backseat
just you gotta remove those, a bunch of 10mm bolts, and remove the cross member
and i think 6 philip heads, and bam. but the banjo bolt will be fun :D
