I just did a quick search and didn't find anything under $200

I hope you know to NOT go full throttle with fuel pressure that low. You will kill that engine right now

no, the senders are differetn, depending on teh car it may work but there are many variations. You can get a brand new fuel pump for around 100 online, many of them available. (walboro 255)

Just beware of what you are getting. There'* a fair bit of chatter regarding cheap copies of Walbro fuel pumps passed off as real ones. Of the ones on the market, actual Walbro electric replacement pumps have one of the best reputations for in-tank pumps.

Also, get a new filter screen for the sump end of the pump. While you have the tank completely out of the car, you might as well clean out the tank before putting the new pump in.

i wonder if a 94 grand am 3100 one would fit work

MPFI 3100 that is

if its the same physical design that is

hmm

i have one, the whole tank and all from a great running one that we had that got very badly totalled in a front end collision, the battery got smashed busted wide open, no front end left cept the fenders and hood


was a nice car too, cherry red two door black bucket interior

mint shape 60k miles

wasted..

right now my brothers car a real nice 80k miles 87 celebrity 3.1L MPFI has a TBI fuel pump in it

because the fuel pressure vacuum regulator on the fuel rail ruptured internally and was sending fuel down the vacuum hose into the TB unit unknowingly,
didnt realize this until after we stuck in a fuel pump that we had laying around in the shop from some past fuel pump replacement job,
a TBI one however.

plugged off the hose for the regulator,
the raw fuel killed the MAF
so we got a new one for it in which already had been replaced a year ago,

and now it runs great but is kinda difficult to start takes extra cranking to start it up.

i bet its because of the 13psi TBI pump lmao..
how it does run i have no idea hahaha

but it will start, and runs great lots of power for sure


fun fun

love this stuff,

its always something !

never ending!

never cease to learn new things no matter what you already have done or bene through over all the years of repairing, owning, parting, junking, and driving billions of different vehicles from most decades and of almost any make model design(american made anyways) hahahaa

D

love it or hate it
