When you turn the ignition switch on the fuel pump should hear the fuel pump turn on then off after about 3 seconds. As soon as you push the starter button and the engine starts the fuel pump will come on and stay on for the duration.

If you are having fuel pump issues I would recommend the Spectra SP1186 fuel pump because the pump outlet is the same as the OEM fuel pump. When you install this pump, cut about a 1/4 inch off the inlet nipple to make the fuel hose fit better.

A good investment is a fuel pressure test gauge, rules out the fuel system as an issue.
