Some times it can be ur selanoid it may not be giving enoff power to ur starter .....fuel pomoe its located in the gas tank ....

if the engine isn't turning over , it's got nothing to do with the fuel pump. the starter might need a shim or the wires are not tight , check the terminals on the battery and do a load test on the battery.

Fuel pump is in the tank, at the top. They design has the fuel tank sitting above the rear axle. Y'know the area right behind the rear seats? That's right above your fuel tank, but I dunno how useful tapping it would be because there's about an inch separation between the body and the tank.
