alero fuel pump help

Asked by Mar 05, 2015 at 11:02 PM about the 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car ran great Till it ran out of gas sitting in the driveway.
I put gas in it , just cranks. I can hear the pump hum
shortly like it's suposed to but I have 0 pressure at the rail.
I replaced the filter , still no pressure. If I literally hold my
ear to the tank when someone turns the key to on u hear
the pump hum than after the hum it sounds like the gas
just pours right back into the tank. My question is do I
need to replace the whole pump or is their a component I
can replace?
