4 Answers


Pump not working, sock filter that is on fuel pump is clogged or crack in one of the rubber gas hoses causing vapor lock.


It's a brand new pump


I hate to tell you this but I have seen brand new parts that come out of the box and does not work and also read the other suggestions that I wrote that could be the problem. Did not say it could just be the pump.


It was vapor locked I opened the gas cap and it started right away thank you
