Default Re: Fuel pump issue/quick fix?

Sorry to come in late. If you do hear the pump now. Itís probably the suction jet pump hose if youíre at 1/4 tank approx. the hose needs to be pulled back on and thatís connected to the left side of the tank. Take out the fuel level exactly like how you pull the fuel pump. You donít have to pull it out all the way. Just enough to get your fingers to push it back up and clip it in.

I just got home I only had undue one screw to pop the bumper off. I'll look at the car in the morning. I checked my codes and there wasn't anything regarding the fuel pump but I'm positive that's what it is.

Default Re: Fuel pump issue/quick fix?

So the boss/owner called me last night asking for my prospective on what happened. I let him know and that i have pictures and Video of his driver pulling the bumper apart. The owner begged me not to let anyone know, and that he'll pay for everything out of pocket. And he's going to have a body shop guy look at my car to get the prices sorted. Which screams to me he doesn't have insurance. He (the owner) kept telling me not to worry he's been in business for 30 years and he won't run from this situation. I kinda want to just tell him to give me a certain amount of money, and I'll just buy the parts myself and get it done faster.
I still want to call insurance and see if my full coverage will did anything about this. Yes I called my roadside and they wanted to tow it to the nearest shop so they can fix the fuel pump. I told them that isn't necessary because I can fix it myself. So they told me to keep any paper work, and they'll reimburse me. And yes I used the best rated place in the area.

So a update. I got a fuel pump ordered from fcp euro.

Update from the tow company. I called this morning telling him if he wants to pay out of pocket he can just write me a check with how much it would cost to fix everything. I told him to write me a check for $1,200 because that will cover the parts and paint, and ill take care of it myself. Guess who's getting a euro bumper

Help. I have the new pump in, it's a walbro 255. I hear it priming. But the engine still isn't starting. It's trying but not getting fuel. I started the pump 3 times trying to get gas flowing but still nothing

I'm getting a fuel relay code. I'm guessing it's the back relay since my green is new.

I swapped out the relays in the back. Both green and black. Still not start. Fuel pump is working car is cranking over strong, so it's not the battery. I have my wife's car hooked to the battery so i don't lose any voltage while trying things
Things I have tried.
1- try starting with Maf disconnected.
2- let the pump prime for 30 seconds with the key fully turned then tried starting.
3- try to start with throttle half and fully pressed.

I'm going to check for spark when it stops raining.
