I have a 1999 mitsubishi galnt that just turned off on me when I was driving in the middle of the road I have check to see if it was alternator was good spark also. I have also taken off the airintake covered it with my hand and tried to turn it on to see if it would choke or have a scent of gas smell nothing. Well now the only option I have is that its the fuel pump but is it located underneath the gas tank or in the firewall cause I have little time to fix the the car going since I have a road trip to make soon please help

Fuel system is computer controled fuel injection so no carb. Check for power to injector pull off connector key on see if power on RED wire. If yes reconnect have helper crank engine do injectors click?
