Fuel pressure - or lack of same.

Got a 91 with no fuel pressure at all. So far I have checked CCCI fuse #8, (good), changed the fuel pump relay, disconnected the oil pressure sending unit. Then ran power to the green plug under the hood. Bottom line - nothing. At this point I am thinking the pump puked. I am definately open to any other things I should check. Thanks, Kyle

it sure sounds like the fuel pump. you should hear it for around 2 seconds with the ignition in the on position. if i recall correctly, hooking up the green wire will let it run continuously.

here's some info: Repair Tips, Tutorials & Information - Reatta Owners Journal

here's a good price on fuel pumps (also i'd pick up a fuel pressure tester if you don't have one): Fuel Pumps

hope this helps! :)

Definately helps, this is the direction I'll go. One thing thats lucky is that I have a car hoist which will make it easier. I will get the pump from the Ronnie/conection. Thanks for the help.

Thanks to Ronnie for terrific service on the Reatta Store connection and Corvanti for his insight - I finally put my new fuel pump in yesterday. Every thing went like a charm. I was amazed how crappy ethanol made the wire cage look, it looked like it was sitting in saltwater!
