I am having the exact same problem. The manual says to first listen to the whirring sound of the pump when ignition is first on.
If pump does not come on, check the fuel pump fuse which governs the fuel pump relay, the fuel pump, the injectors, the ignition system and the PCM.
If fuse is good, check for an open circuit between the relay and the fuel pump. With the ignition key on (engine not running), check for battery voltage at the relay connector. This is located behind the glove box inside the relay control box.
(I am having problems determining what the relay looks like behind the glove box. I see a large harness that I believe connects to the ECM, and to the right of this is a black box that may or may not be the relay I'm looking for. I am wondering if I need to remove the relay in order to test for power to the relay, if this is actually the relay at all). I digress.
If battery voltage exists, replace the relay with a known good relay and retest. If necessary, have the relay checked by a qualified automotive parts store.
If the fuel pump does not activate, check for power to the fuel pump at the fuel tank. Access to the fuel pump is difficult but it is possible to check for battery voltage at the electrical connector near the tank.
If oil pressure drops below the specified pressure level, the oil pressure switch will act as a feul pressure cut off device.
