    I have a 96 escort LX 5 speed built 2 of 98. I had replaced my clutch to a stage 1 put everything back together my car turns over. But getting no fuel from the pump. I already replace the idle control valve vacuum control valve mass air flow sensor fuel filter. But when I check my lines from the fuel pump. I get no fuel at all but the pump turns on. Banging my head against the wall. Also check the rear fuel shut off switch and all fuses and found to be working order

    Yes I'm getting no fuel out of the pump and I have two brand new fuel pumps and they're both doing the same thing. But when I shoot it with starting fluid it fires right up. Literally I had the fuel lines disconnected I've got plenty of fuel in there and all I did was change the clutch ugh

    well something is making the pump not run im assuming. the fuel pump relay is controlled by the pcm. if there is no crank signal the pump wont run. does the car have a tach?if so can you verify cranking rpm on the tach?

    Hey I want to thank you for your help. I got running what I did is retook the pump out make sure there was nothing blocking it lock it back down without the lines hooked up. I had prime the pump like about 10 times finally got fuel out of it. but then when I checked the fuel rail I had a bunch of air and there was something stuck in there cuz I heard it pop. Right after that it fired right up and I've had no problems with it

    good find. i was going to suggest to go to the relay next and verify there is power, and then 'hotwire' it to force the pump to stay on to attempt to bleed air. the pop was probably the spring in the fuel pressure regulator.
