I did not inspect the filter at all. I used a stick to prop open the tank hole to dump the gas out and it got stuck inside the tank so I took the fuel pump out to do that, but I didnt think about checking the filter. Everyone I call says its lifetime and doesnt require maintaince. Think if battery is too low then it wouldnt start? The light has been on even after I charge it, it stays on. And i also need an oil change. The terminals sucked and there is a chip on the ground connecting to the battery but it is basically all the way corroded. Think that could be it maybe?

But when i turn the key to on it makes a sound and it also does when I try to crank it. Thats a sign of it going out right?
Too many strange bits of new news there. I am tempted to comment on some of that news, but I do not want to be rude, AND I am 3 hours late for sleeptime. Funny that I have to wake-up in 2.5 hours. Lucky me.

"trickles out" sounds very wrong, sounds like a fuel pump problem. My fuel pump pumps-out fuel like a horse going pee-pee... Or bigger than your STRONGEST pee ever! Temped to add a horse going pee photo, but not needed.

I was thinking that the flow looked a little weird. I watched a video to see if everything was going right, the flow is way weaker than the horse. Appreciate the comments though. I'll just check on a fuel pump and see what it does after installing a new one.

I did not mean to say you should replace the fuel pump, but I do agree that this might be your problem.

The BIGGER picture was multiple thoughts. If your going to replace the fuel pump module, you must/should attempt to remove and test that old filter to see if it has resistance (is clogged?) and replace if needed. This is especially important in your situation where nasty gas might have caused other problems, such as clogging that filter and maybe even affected the upstream HPFP.

Your situation is also X2, X4 problem compounded by the suspected water damaged engine bay; water damaged car.

Good luck, and you might need extra luck. Burn a candle tonight or this weekend. Look into the stars at night, and pray to any God that might shine down upon you.

Been a while since I posted. Just dropped the new fuel pump in yesterday just to find out that there is no power going to the pump. Any ideas on where the fuel pump relay is located?

Nope, no info on a 2012 here. Did you check the fuel system fuse/s?

Makes me wonder if that 2012 has/does not have a FPDM?

FPDM controls the fuel pump.

Looks like 2012 does have a FPDM, see link

Oh, and there is a inertia fuel shut-off, that can kill power to the FPDM.
