On most "in the tank" vehicles you can hear the pump cycle on for a few seconds when you turn the key to "run"...When a pump starts to fail,the impeler can jam and fail to "pressure up" the system. I have found that MANY times you can apply "percussion Therapy" to the bottom of the gas tank while someone cranks the engine...This can wake up the pump. Although this is not a repair...It can get you home
