TURN YOUR KEY TO THE ON POSITION AND LISTEN FOR A HUMMING SOUND FROM YOUR TANK OR TAKE FUEL FILTER LOOSE TO SEE IF ANY GAS IS FLOWING THROUGH IT. FUEL FILTER IS LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD, NEAR THE BRAKE RESEVIOR

How can you tell if the fuel pump is gone in your 1997 Mazda 626 LX V4?

Have a helper stand at the fuel filler door with the fuel cap off and listen carefully. Turn on the ignition without starting the engine. You should hear the pump run for a few seconds and then shut down. If not, check the fuel pump fuse & relay. If they are good the pump is more than likely defective. Even if the pump is running that does not mean it is pumping fuel. The fuel filter can be clogged or the pump can be bad and still be running. A fuel pressure test at the fuel rail will verify the condition of the pump. Replace the fuel filter first thing if you have not done so in the last 50,000 miles.

Simple, replace the fuel filter and if it still will not start more than likely the fuel pump is defective. But it can also be nothing more than a blown fuse or defective fuel pump relay. Check them both before moving to replacing the fuel pump.
