FUEL PUMP

2001 Mitsubishi Galant

Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 164000 miles

car died going down road. Will crank, but not start. Tried to flood it, but cant smell gas. It's acting like its not getting fuel to it. Could it be filter or pump. If so wherer are they located?
Thanks in advance,

Cranks but no start condition-do below to determine whether it's fuel or spark related problem: Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
