fuel pump relays , check for power and ground at fuel pump disconnect , do you hear the pump prime the system when you hit the key ? Changing the filter may result in broken rusty lines , it's an old vehicle you may want to change them all ," linestogo " is the place for that . There may be an access panel under the back seat or in the trunk for the pump , if you're lucky
