Chances are fairly high that the fuel pump is shot and before it went out totally it fired the relay, it may click but the contact points are burnt out, so replace the fuel pump, strainer, fuel filter and the relay and you should be good to go.

Ok thanks for pointing me in the right direction one more thing fuel pump is in the gas tank and difficulty of job Is doable by me or do I need rocket scientist

You can do it yourself if you some mechanical ability and the fuel line tools. Try pricing it as an assembly, sometimes it is cheaper that buying the parts separately

I had that same car the repair in a shop is 500 and up not a hard job to do with a little patience sorry i got rid of mine

Thank you so much Mr tennis shoes you called it like you know it and job took me total time 3.5 hrs start to finish with test drive included thanks again sir
