My 1987 300zx non-turbo will not

it along with a fuel filter and fuel
pump relay. It will turn over fine but
will not start.

Are you sure it is fuel and not fire?

20

Yes. It will turn over fine but when you turn the key on the fuel pump doesn't kick on.

This may have a fuse too. It also probably has an inertia switch which is usually located in the trunk or at the right kick panel on passenger side at your foot. This trips if you are in an accident to shut off fuel. Also look under the rear seat at the harness for the pump.Sometimes the wires will corrode for the fuel pump at the harness plug in.

The inertia switch can trip itself if bad.Doesn't have to be in an accident.

I can't seem to find an inertia switch. And mine doesn't have a backseat. But I don't see any corroded wires.

Did you check fuses?

Yes all the fuses are fine.

You either have a broken wire/unplugged at fuel pump or the pump you installed was bad in the box new.
