91 SC auto, bone stock. The car had been sitting in a garage for a year or so, tried to start it, no fuel pressure. Dropped the tank, pump was junk. Installed a new pump, still no pressure. It has spark as it runs on carb cleaner, pump relay or something else I should check?

The fuel pump: does it run for a few seconds with the ignition on? If not, check the wiring. If so, check the fuel lines. If ok check the pressure reg. If Ok check the the injector circuit.
Go methodically instead of just swapping parts. Unless you have some around. Of course you did plug the wires back into the pump on re-install.

Im not just throwing parts at it, the pump was junk and the tank was half full of empty gas. All cleaned and new pump insalled. I can hear the pump cycle but the car wont turn over with the key. Going to check out the ignitiln switch today.
