what you are describing on frame rail is the fuel filter -- fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. pump operation is controlled by the computer. do you hear the pump run for a short time when you first turn on key to start? this circuit goes thru an auto shutdown relay, controled by the computer. good luck

Need to do a little more detective work. Like the sheriff says...do you hear the fuel pump run for about 3 seconds when you turn the key to the on position?

After you listen for the fuel pump, disconnect the negative battery cable for about 5 minutes, reconnect and try to start the engine. It probably won't start but I want you to see if it will set an error Code 11 in the computer. Extract the error codes from the computer using the following procedure.

Turn the ignition switch ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON and observe the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. The CHECK ENGINE LIGHT should begin to flash a series of codes. The flashes will be separated by short an long pauses. The long pauses separate the "ones" and "tens" positions, and each code from the next. A code 55 will be displayed at the end of the test.

Welcome to the site "Degenerate" while you're here check out the Florida chapter. We just had another new member join up from Loxahatchee, I believe. There are lots of helpful people here, we'll get your RC up & running in no time.

i had an 88 pacifica with a turbo and five speed. that car was lots of fun. i had to replace the fuel pump three times because chrysler didn't use the bosch pump as a replacement, using instead the v6 pump. i also had to replace the fuel pump relay and auto shutoff relay. any of these could be your problem. wish i had kept that car.
