Alright gentlemen, my car has been cutting out on occasion and if i go full throttle after cruising between 3k and 3250, and my gas is below 1/4 it cuts/ stutters. I am thinking this is the fuel pump going out or strainer getting clogged.
It make no sense for me to pull the tank and not put in a new pump, in my mind. cap rotor and plugs have less than 10k on them and when i replaced them in the past it didnt seem to help. The car has 150k miles and i try to never run it below 1/8 of a tank and in two years have only seen the gas light once and that was when i bought it. Modifications can be found in my signature or on my build thread.
I know not all fuel pumps are created equal but does anyone have any suggestions? I want to spend less than $75 shipped with strainer kit. And since I plan to boost would prefer to only do this once rather than now and later.
And does my diagnosis sound right? I'd hate it to be a ditty going out but to me if it's been intermittent for more then 8k miles and unaffected by changing plugs cap and rotor it seems like it should be the fuel system.
It defenitly sounds like it could be the culprit. If you wanted to cover your bases, T in a fuel pressure gauge and just sit in on the cowling and go for a drive.
We just did pile of rd1's pump. on his we noticed the pump itself wasnt as loud as other GD's, and alot of times he had to crank the shit out of his car before it would start. Those were really the only warning signs though for him. tossed in a walbro 255 and hasnt had an issue since, and picked up a ton of power.
