03 malibu won't fire up right away, recently installed new sending unit, runs & idles fine, re-starts fine after short stops. Could the new fuel pump have a denser strainer & causing this?

Have a 1990 Volvo 740 GLE. It has been sitting for 3 years or more? When it was parked in my backyard it drove right in? Now we try to start it and it turns over but will not start and run? We blew out the fuel filter, checked fuses, bought new battery, and added more fuel to it? Do these cars have a common problem with getting them to start? Or could it be a fuel pump or other? Need to get it running so we can possibly sell it or perhaps keep it for my roommate?
