greetings, my 97 straus will not start and i believe it is the fuel
system. my gas gauge reads empty and i know there is at least a half
tank of gas. when i spray some starter fluid into the air intake the car
will start momentarily (a couple of seconds) and then quit. i checked
the fuel pump fuse and it is okay. is there anyway to check the fuel
pump without dropping the tank? i have a volt/ohmmeter but i am not
exactly sure how to use it
many thanks, cj
Try smacking the bottom of the tank while someone is turning the key on and
see if you hear the pump running. Im pretty sure that the wire connector on
that year runs inside the vehicle just behind the back seat cushion. remove
the cushion to test for a good ground and battery voltage.
