xj died out

I was at a stop when my 99 jeep xj died on me. I tried to start it back up and no luck. It cranks and it kicks on 3 seconds and dies on me I pushed the gas valve by the injectors and I get no spray. Only a little bit of gas drips out if I'm lucky. I jumped the fuel pump relay and the I can hear the fuel pump kick on. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Re: xj died out

Alright, first off that "gas valve" is a fuel pressure test port for screwing on a pressure tester. However, you may still have a fuel pressure problem. Even if the pump is running with the relay jumped the pump may be worn out to the point of not producing enough pressure or volume. Rent, borrow, buy or steal a pressure gauge to tell you how much that pump is producing if you suspect fuel pressure. Don't get tunnel vision to that though.
