sure, and a few more questions, the cover between the wheel and the engine was quite rotted, and it fell apart (part of it), is it ok to run without this on? Also, is the fuel pump fuse in the car itself, or in the engine bay?

Check that fuse! I'll bet a beer it'* blown. Should be above the passenger footwell.

This is going to sound stupid, but I can't find a hex wrench anywhere, and I really don't want to rip the sound insulation out, it'* all neat and pretty. Anyone know what kind of wrench I need? I'll go to Autozone tomorrow


(it'* the insulation under the glove compartment)

Are you going down from the glove box or up from the footwell? Go up and a screwdriver is all you'll need.

Can you please change the title of this post to something a bit more meaningful for future searching.

There'* 2 circuits for power to get to the fuel pump.
Primary one is through the fuel pump relay.
Secondary is through the oil pressure switch/sender.
My understanding is that this is done so the engine won't stall if the relay fails. Both of these circuits get power from the same fuse. If the pressure sender shorts out and blows the fuse you're not going anywhere. That beer is gonna taste good. :P
