1 Answer


Drop the fuel tank to gain access to the fuel pump assembly. Have you ran a pressure and flow test to verify it is a fuel pump problem? If it is a pump make sure you replace the filter and the pump relay so if something does go wrong with the new pump the warranty will cover it. Most manufactures won't cover the pump if the filter and relay are not sold at the same time.
