My car wont pass gas to fuel filter, replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay, but wouldnt start, then we took fuel filter off to see if gas was pumping to fuel filter and it wasnt, the fuel pump turns on for bout 3 to 5 seconds so we think its working just gas does not have any pressure ccoming up to even get to fuel filter just need to know what I ciould be.

Hook up a fuel pressure gauge and read the pressure-No pressure double check the fuel pump

Thank for advice will do, just had some more questions could it have to do with something electrical, or a oil/fuel sending unit if so where is that located also some people said I could have a bad fuel or clogged fuel line coming out from tank cause the fuel pump has a strong hum when it turns on just trying to find if could be something else cause dropping that tank is no joke

The only way to tell is to check the fuel pressure even though the pump is humming.

Is that 6-7 kg/cm2 or PSI? If its psi the fuel pump is no good or the pressure is leaking somewhere such as the injector/s, fuel pump check valve and pressure regulator.
