Default It won't Start

I got some beer Friday night and it cranked just fine today I went out to go to the auto parts store and it turns over but acts like it is out of gas. I have not even tried to figure it out yet I was work on another project today. I did have a Bronco II that did this before but that was from a tree rat chewing the fuel line although the Sammy is parked in the same place. Just wondering if this is a common problem for Sammies?

does it cough or sputter at all? does it try to start up or is it just cranking?

check the fuel lines... tree rats don't descriminate between foreign and domestic fuel lines.

I've had similar problem that turned out to be the fuel pump... will run fine then turn off without any warning....
I've had both the stock pump and the electric pump in my 87 replaced (with used pumps) and am back to the original... still have the problem every once and awhile so I've gotten real good at turning the engine back on while coasting down the road...
I think I have also read other similar posts somewhere around here...

Am I correct in assuming the tree rats you speak of are squirrels?

No it does not sputter at all. Yeah I will check all the lines I know they don't care.

Yes tree rats are squirrels that name fits them better.

Have you checked the timing belt? could have broke or teeth may have let go. if that seems ok check to see if the TBI injector is firing and you have spark at the plugs. if no fuel test for pressure and flow at the supply line.

It has a brand new timing belt. Installed less then 2 weeks ago.

What is the fuel pressure that I need incase it is the fuel pump and I want to go to a universal pump.

Just because it is new does not mean something didnt go wrong.
I am not familiar with the exact fuel press for your vehicle but I would guess 30-50 psi

Ok new fuel pump is installed but it still will not start. The new pump is working and I am getting fuel at the throttle body but it is stopping at the injector so it is bad or the fuse is. The problem is I can not find where the fuse is can someone help?
