Sitting that long, the pump is probably toast, and if there is any gas left in the tank it is "sour." jd

If you use a jumper wire in the ECM test port, it will energize the fuel pump. I'd check the relay near the ECM in the pass side kick panel, and check the rollover(?) switch on the inside firewall near the heater on the passenger side. Either the switch or the relay can cut power to the pump. Check fuses also. The tank is pretty well sealed up, so you would not have a lot of fuel evaporating, so there should be no damage to the pump, IMO.

WOOOO HOOOOOO!!
Gave it a shot of starting fluid and it started up perfect. No pressure on the fuel rail. Gas is sour/flat, nasty, needs cleaning and the fuel pump replaced,
Thanks guys for all your help, will let you know when I am back on the road.

Great to hear, a fuel pump job isn't all that bad. A bit of advice, the crusty fuel may have also caused your injectors to stick, so clean them if you have a chance before you try to crank it up with new fuel and pump, or it may still be a dry run. I fought them for a long time when I finally got my '85 back together (it was in pieces for 3 years)!

I can buy the gas being bad, but you still don't know if it is the pump or the relay or the cutoff switch... unless the pump ran while you were fiddlin' around. Did the pump run enough to pump the gas? Or was it just residual odor when you pushed on the schrader?
Some have two pumps. One in the tank and one on the frame rail about under the brake pedal.(has a piece of thick steel bolted around it for protection) Heck, I could not even get a filter for mine at Advance, much less the right fuel pump. They gave me something that looked like it belonged on a Pinto...

Looking 4 advice on a 89 Ranger 2.3 Liter. It jumped time and has been corrected now. It starts, idles, and runs great when engine is cold. After it warms up it runs like crap at low rpms and wants to die. It has new computer, new coil packs, new crankshaft sensor, new plugs and wires, and new ICM. All new parts pass all tests and therefore have already been ruled out at this point. Any suggestions?????
