Angry my 90 plymouth voyager...

I own a 1990 plymouth voyager and it crapped out on my in a parking lot....the mechanic who towed it pointed out that the ignition coil wire was burnt ...we replaced it and it still didn't work....we then replaced the whole rotor/distributor assembly(tried to replace the distributor cap but the screws broke off).....we can get it started using starting fluid but it won't stay started(meaning there is spark...which means the relay which runs the fuel pump is good) and that leads us to the conclusion that the fuel pump is bad.......unless.....I was wondering how do you check or reset that pickup??

Angry temp

I thought I already replied...I don't know.....I want to check that pickup you are talking about before I replace the fuel pump in my 90 plymouth voyager.....we replaced the ignition coil wire, the rotor, distributor, and distributor cap....it still doesn't start(unless you use starting fluid, but it doesn't stay running).....how did you check the pickup??

Have the mechanic check the fuel pressure with his gauges. Have you replaced the fuel filter?

It's in the tank; here's removal of the tank:

Unfortunately they don't show the pump R&R. Here it is on Chrysler cars of the same vintage; yours would be similar:

Just an observation, but you may already have spent more on throwing parts at it than a mechanic would have charged to fix it.
