fuel pump?

Well my friggin car wouldn't start this afternoon so i got the nrma guy out to have a look at it. I thought it was just a flat battery but it wasn't. Seems the fuel pump has shat itself (or some problem related to the fuel pump). Anyway what i was wondering was will a standard fuel pump be okay for my application? (i'm not sure what fuel pump is in there at the moment).
Cheers.

Re: fuel pump?

Hard to tell. didnt you get a breakdown of parts when you got your s/c kit?
its either a std pump with adj fuel reg or its an upgraded pump..
Take it out & have a look or ring the workshop where you had it done...

Re: fuel pump?

The kit was on the car when i got it. It uses a fuel pressure regulator, i know that much. Unfortunately i had to leave the car at work (i couldn't get a tow because they didn't reckon they could do it without damaging my body kit) My mechanic's coming round tomorrow to fix it. Guess i'll find out what pump's in there tomorrow...

Re: fuel pump?

Get a Walpro 225 intank pump and or an inline [Bosch ??} pump to make sure..
The Walpro is exactly the same type pump as std may even be smaller...

Above should come with kit!!!

Check relay or check that there is power at pump...Get access through boot...

Re: fuel pump?

since were on the topic of fuel pumps, if you are going to upgrade the fuel pump for a big hp application, how are they normally hooked up. Some people say leave the factory intank pump hooked up and running then just put a bigger pump inline.....OR disable the factory pump but leave it in the tank and put a bigger pump inline?

Re: fuel pump?

The kit uses the stock pump from memory, fitting a new pump and an inline pump (bosch 040 i think) would be your best bet if your planning more hp in the future IMO. The pump relay is a very common problem so if its that it'll be easily and cheaply fixed. Can you hear or feel the pump firering up when you try and start it? If not it'll be your relay for sure. Has your pump been noisy recently? Thats usually a good indication that it's on its way out.

Re: fuel pump?

Bugger Dave I saw you there with the NRMA yesterday was going to stop and see what was happening but was a little on the sick side. Hopefully this is the last drama for you. Ps how does she feel now after the re-build???

Re: fuel pump?

Well turns out the problem was just that that connecter to the fuel pump was dirty, so problem is now fixed and most importantly it didn't cost me anything!

Andrew, how you going mate? Car definately feels smoother and more responsive now (though i haven't nailed it yet, as tempting as it is). Also not a drop of oil in the catch can. About 700 more km's and it's going back up for a service and to be put on the dyno and tuned. Would be nice to crack 300rwhp.
ps. Had much interest in the ute?
