2001 L-Series 2.2L Sedan
Default 01 L100 Fuel pump trouble

Looking for some guidance with my 2001 L100 4cyl Automatic 135,000 miles

The last 40k miles the car would die if the fuel level got below half a tank. Add fuel and it would fire right up, so I just never let it get that low. My grandfather was previous owner who A) would never let it get past 3/4 tank before filling up and B) had it sit in storage for 18 months prior to me getting it a year ago.

I think the pump has finally died. Last weekend with a full tank it hesitated on me several times and died once, I was able to restart without adding fuel. Drive home and parked it on level ground where it sat for two days. Now at 3/4 tank it will not start, engine cranks but seems no fuel. Can someone point me to the trouble shooting steps for the fuel system. IIRC There is a fuse and a relay to be checked before dropping tank to check the actual pump. Also after a quick check at my local part stores the price on a replacement pump seems way high. Around $300. Any help on where to find a cheaper yet quality replacement pump would be great.
