I am looking at the external pump and filter near the left rear wheel.  I am going to borrow the pump off of my kid's 90Q and see if that fixes it.  Might as well replace the filter while I am at it.  I disconnected the line at the fuel rail.  The pump runs but nothing comes out.  I think something is sheared or blocked inside the pump.
