well i have a 1988 isuzu trooper II FI 5 spd, there is no gas gauge so i tend to run out of gas every now and then :/ anyway now after putting a few gallons of fresh gasoline she wont start. I would really appreciate it if some one can help me with a diagram of some vacuum lines aswell i knoe there not connected correctly, thanks

so it turns over and won't start? if thats the case then the fuel pump might be bad being you said you run out of gas every now and than. the pump picked up debris and got stuck you can probably tap it a few times to loosen it up ad try it again.

It might be the pump, see the gas in the tank keeps the pump cool, once you run lower than about 1/4 tank it gets warmer, and can burn out, or like rjer3 said pick up debris.
