do a pressure stest on the fuel rail well actually instead of hooking up a gauge turn your key on but engine off there will be a valve on your fuel rail the valve will be very similiar to the valves on your tires just take like a flat head screw driver and poke it in there be cautious of the fuel if it sprays out then the pump is good if it trikles out its the filter if nothing at all then the pump

both one in tank and one on drivers side just in front of the back tire. Start by replacing the filter, that solved my problem.
