Default 1996 chrysler concorde won't start

I have a 1996 concorde with a 3.5 V-6that will crank over just fine but it will not start or even act like it wants to start. How do I check if the fuel pump is working? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What if I don't have access to fuel pressure gage ,the car is at my house and I live out in the country,is there any other way to check that the pump is working? When I crank it over it does not smell gassy at all. Thanks

Try this. It's lots cheaper than a tow.

But if the fuel pump is shot, you'll be paying for the tow anyway.
