the fuel pump is in the fuel tank. when you turn the key to the on position, without starting the car, you should be able to hear the fuel pump cycle for a few seconds. if not, check the fuses and relays associated with it. if they are good, have the fuel pressure tested.

After being parked for 2 years if the tank was nearly empty when you parked it the gas has most likely turned to varnish by now. Varnish is a sticky, gooey mess that will gum up everything in the fuel system. HTH. -Jim
