I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, and now im not getting and fuel. I have spark and from what I can see the crank shaft sensor is ok, and I had the relay checked and its fine. Im at a stand still and I cant figure out what else to do? Thanks.

Power the fuel pump from the battery to the fuel pump wiring connector and see what happens

Did you check for power and ground when you were at the fuel pump connector, and possibly even look at the connector itself for terminal or heat damage?

Yes there is power going to the pump, I checked after I checked the injectors. I think it could be a bad pump.

Injectors are not controlled through power. They get a pulsing ground signal and you need to use a noid light to test that.

What ground source did you use to determine power to the pump, the circuit ground. Have you load tested the ground circuit?
