Having problems with your 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser ?

88 landcruiser: fuel pump works, I've pulled it out and tested it, but I only get gas when parked down hill. I've checked the wiring from the relay to the pump.

Hey i would say that even if the pump works it may not be pushing enough pressure to start they need 45 psi to start and that just to start and idle but it may be that the pump overheats and does not have enough suction to pull.i would try setting on level ground turn the switch to acc and see if you can hear the pump trying to charge the line it should make a humming noise try turn the switch of and on several time to charge the line although it would be better if you had a way to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail on the motor with a fp gauge and see maybe it slow to build pressure.if that's not it then it would have to be the pickup on the bottom of the pump the fuel sock.good luck
Did you test it for pressure leakage? the pump may not be holding the needed pressure , you may also have a small leak in the system thats allowing AIR IN
