If a fuel pump dies on you, sometimes you can tap on it with a screwdriver or something & it might start working again... enough to get you home. So..... that IS normal. Your pump is bad. You gotta replace it. Just get a used fuel pump the exact same year as yours. If yours has a rubber bellows with a plastic strainer - make sure you tell them that cuz the strainer deal can be slightly different. I got a good used fuel pump for $65. A NEW one gets as high as $240 -$380. YIKES! Follow my previous instructions on height & angle of strainer inlet or..... Your car will konk out on left turns! hahahaha (true.... I know!) - Orbitronik POOH GUND wrote: > As mentioned before I believe my fuel pump died. I checked the voltage from the > relay and had twelve volts to the pump, it still did not work.
