Default Fuel pump, which one?

on my 92 p/a, I have 0 psi at the rail. I haven't checked the relay. but with 180k miles, i strongly suspect the fp itself.

a carter from murrays is $100. but the online flea-bay pumps are the same. should i get a 255? or just go with the carter?
what do you guys think of this one?http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ayphotohosting
or should i spend the extra money on an oe pump?

Howdy there Sam. you should make sure that the test wire near the relay is hot with a bulb voltage tester for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position. Just to be sure that the pump is really dead.. It might not be getting voltage due to a problem with a connector after the relay. We always use a lower/lowest priced replacement from auto zone and o reilly auto parts and have on so many different vehicles over the years that we have replaced the pumps in for customers with no problem ever thus far. Most ppl will say higher priced= higher quality.. but sometimes it doesnt matter all that much and loer priced works just fine. if your engine is stock, or at least your fuel system and related parts then a stock replacement pump would be more than adequate D anymore questions or info needed then just let me know good luck!

Default OEM

I deffinatly vote for the oem from gm parts direct. 129 shipped. Why take the chance on the ebay one? I wouldnt want to drop that tank more then once. [ "When replacing your fuel pump, it is crucial to meet or exceed the manufacturer'* minimum fuel requirements in order to get your engine the right amount of fuel it needs. This is one of the major differences between Walbro and non-brand/imported fuel pumps. In most cases it does not hurt to install a 255LPH high pressure fuel pump into a non-performance vehicle because all unused fuel is automatically sent back to the gas tank by the fuel pressure regulator via the fuel return line. "(quote walbro ebay auction)} two questions 1.) if you dont need the higher flow isn't it pointless to just keep sending extra back to the tank 2.) what kind of extra wear does the added flow put on your $90.00 regulator.(just wondering.) To top it all off the seller only has 99.5 % feedback which is not that great. in the end its all up to you but I like to go stock whenever economically feasable. good luck and remember to change your relay regardless "" fule pump worked for less than a day after install sell wold not respond to emai stunts528 ( 47) Nov-28-07 20:42

as for an update i went with the carter. despite the poll results. i went with the carter b.c. it has a lifetime warr, and if i shoul it fail, it will be much easier for me to drive 2 miles to the parts store, rather than deal with E-bay, or the delco warranty.

plus, i got it fo $80.

Why did you choose either pump without troubleshooting the system?

bc, i dont want to risk it. considering it has 180k miles, i want a new one in there anyway. and it will fix my right turn issue as well, cuz i got a new tank. $60 new, i couldnt see passing it up for that much.

i just checked it. the fuse was good. i switched the relay with the p.window relay, and nothing. then i check between pin 30 and ground. it was open. so, my suspicion was correct. FP failed.
