fuel problem

I have a 93 Mustang 2.3 LX. I wasn't getting fuel into the engine when starting it. I called on a friend to fix it. He told me I needed a new fuel pump and possibly a fuel filter. I have replaced both but still
the car won't start. Can anyone help me with this issue? Someone told me to replace the ignition module and it will start up. I really can't afford to be playing guessing games right now. So if someone has some good advice I would highly appreciate it.
Thank You Ron Daack

whats the fuel pipe like comming out of the tank to the engine?? can you draw fuel down the pipe from the tank at the engine end.?? put a clear pipe between the pipe and the carb (or injector pump) and see if there is any air in the fuel flow... if there is then you have air getting into the system.. check the rubber hoses and replace them if not sure....
can you run the engine from a fuel can by running it strait to the carb or injector pump ...have the can above the hight of the engine so that it feeds by gravity... if the car starts or trys to start then you may have air getting in ...
simple but cheap to check,, and alot cheaper than changing mechanical parts that may not be the problem,,,,,,,,,, if none of these work then you have a bigger prob and will need an expert

Just because your are not getting fuel into the engine does not mean there is anything wrong in that system. It is designed to stop fuel delivery if it does not sense the engine turning. You should be able to hear the fuel pump run for 1-3 seconds immediately after you turn the switch to the "run" position and then it will stop because it does not sense engine rotation. This is as it should be. If you do not hear the pump running, the problem may be the fuel pump relay which occasionally fails. Have you checked for ignition at the plugs? You may have an ignition module problem if you have neither. If you have neother spark nor fuel, the problem may be a bad ignition module. Does the starter actually crank the engine? One of the first things you need to do is make sure it is getting spark and fuel. You also need to extract any fault or self test codes that may be stored in the ECM. Until you do the basics, you are simply throwing time and money at it. As you have already noticed, the fuel pump and filter didn't help and werea waste of money. You can spend a lot more just like that if you or your friend cannot do the diagnostics.
Good luck Lugnut

Well... at least - maybe- you dont have to worry about your fuel pump for a while.
Like Lugnut says;
Listen for the Fuel Pump Listen for the Relay click (much softer) \ - some are under driver's seat, some in pass side kick some under hood near pass strut tower
BUT FIRST:
Check and reset the Inertia Safety Switch in the Rear To right of Hatch Latch.
Press the reset button.. if it doesnt make a diff, bang it with your fist and press it again.
BTW if your tach wiggles on cranking, your Ign system is probably good.
