Just found a 2000 gt black on black 5 speed that been sitting in a garage for 7 years. Fuel pump don’t work. Came with a like brand new extra set of Crome cobra R rims and dam near new tires on them. Cold air intake and some American Muscle exhaust hf cats. The leather is dam near perfect Driver seat showing cracks and body is perfect. I knew it needed work. I assumed I’d put a battery in and go. I only ran it by dumping a little gas in TB and sounds great. No oil leaks and no rust. I think I looked at all the reasons the fuel pump don’t work from fuse to relay to inertia switch and the other box in trunk still feel like something is missing. Unless pumps freeze up from sitting because tho dude hasn’t started it once in 7 years

Or it has been sitting because the fuel system failed and went undiagnosed? Troubleshoot it need to end. Also...are they new tires, or seven year old barely used tires (in which case they are throw aways)? Happy hunting.

More than enough reading to do on here. I would take the gas tank out . Clean it out , and put a new pump and filter in . Thats the least you can do then you know your good

well I’ll just show everyone what I found. Now it runs but feel like I better have a back up engine build. Has a tapping sound at mid rpm that comes and goes with either a load on or off its quiet. At like just enough pedal to keep rpm it does it. And sounds like coming from power steering pump but never herd a pump do that. Can’t turn the wheel easy until u drive so idk I’ma take the belt off and start it to see. Thanks for the time guys.
