Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

No wonder my car stinks of gas a lot of the time. How incredibly dangerous is this situation? Last time I filled it up there was gas everywhere, pouring out from under the car near the gas cap, and even in the trunk. After removing the cover this is the sight I was greeted with:


The PO said the pump was upgraded to a walbro 255... So it looks like they removed the 12V supply wire from the pump assembly top plate and left the hole open, then they have it coming up between the plate and the tank I dont get it.


Its so rusty in there, it doesnt look like the pump has been out in years and years. Im going to follow the Vfaq for upgrading the fuel pump to remove it some time this week and see whats going on. I wonder how much of this Im going to have to replace?

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

Yum! That looks BAD! That wire could have shorted out at any time, possibly starting a fire with all that gas that would be around because of the seal not being comolete. Glad you found it before coming to any harm!

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

dayum! Good thing you found that or we would have lost another vr4 to fire damage! Looks like your going to need new tank and part that holds the pump and sending unit.. I think it was JNZ that had a sweet setup that used a bosch pump. Rust sucks believe me living in the northeast has its disadvantages when coming to cars and rusting.

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

Thanks for the replies, I dont think I need a new tank (I hope) because it seems like its surface rust. But the whole pump/sending assembly looks like it has to go.

I never worked on a fuel system before and Im not looking forward to learning on this one. My first problem is that I have a good half tank of gas still left in there. I dont really want to drive the car anymore considering how bad the problem is, and I dont have a container large enough to catch that much gas if I use the drain plug. I have read of using the DSMlink to activate the pump and remove the fuel line going to the rail and have it pump into a container there, this way I can turn it off and use (2) 5gal containers.

Ive got a lot of searching to do tonight lol. Thanks again for any suggestions.

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

i bet you could get those nuts off. just hit it with the PB blaster for a few days, and go at it with some care. there are guys on here who had it way worse, and managed to save the sending units, so have faith. i personally had it so bad, you couldn't tell there were nuts on the studs. it was just little balls of rust. i ended up getting a new stailess unit from Alex (awesome by the way) and although it was a bit of a tough fit, that and some stainless rivets, and i was good to go. Too bad they don't make them anymore....at least i think they don't. good kuck man!

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

yeah that really sucks...after i installed the stainless unit, the gromet that held the little nut and bolt for the power wire fell out, and had worn the wire down. so imagine a hot wire straight into the fuel pump. we were on the way to Summit racing, and it popped the MPI fuse, i replaced the fuse, and it popped again in like 5 minutes. when we finally stopped to investigate (we were in the parking lot at this point) the wire had seperated from the nut/grommet thing, and was floating around in the tank. now with the sending unit rivited in, i had to buy a precision pick set from summit, and fish the wire out of the tank through the grommet hole...that was fun. i then fitted connectors to the wire ends to get the car home. i got lucky, and didn't cause any fires or anything, and it looks like you avoided the same problem....nice catch.

Wow man, that sounds insane. I cant imagine fishing anything out of that little grommet hole. How the hell did you see anything lol? Yeah thats a really nice save, Im glad you avoided disaster too.

Well, I guess my only option at this point is to find some containers large enough to hold all of the gas I have left in the tank. Man thats going to suck, I hate gasoline lol Im so paranoid.

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

lets just say i got really good with tiny pick sets. i had to do it by feel, as i couldn't see shit! ...i think you could get those things loose/off without heat or grinding. remember the fumes are what ignite, not the fluid itself. if you just keep PB blasting the nuts, you could probably get the off. at that point, you could pull the sending unit, and fix all that crap the PO did. is that what you're planning?

Yeah thats pretty much exactly what I was planning as soon as I figure out what to do with all of that gas. I have to look around tomorrow for gas cans, and something to drain the tank into. Does pepboys or autozone sell something big enough to hold that much gas? Im guessing there is at least 7-8 gallons left in the tank

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

i wouldn't bother with draining the gas, if you're not gonna use any heat or grinder. if you're really worried, just tape over the grommet hole, or stuff a rag in it or something....you should be good to go. i drilled my studs out when i did mine with fuel in the tank, i just wrapped everything around the sending unit with damp rags, and kept spraying the area down with pb or WD-40. i drilled right through with not an issue. I was worried about the drain plug breaking in the tank, and really didn't want to try to siphon a 1/2 tank of gas with nothing to put it in. you should be fine without draining the tank.

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

Ok cool, but what about when I get the whole assembly out? I can stuff rags into that large opening and not worry about rust and other crap falling into the tank?

When you drilled out the studs on yours, what happened to all of the metal shavings that must have fallen into the tank? The screen on the pump is good enough to block any of that from entering the engine?

Also if I was to goto a junkyard and look for another sending unit, would I be able to use one from an awd t/e/l? I think I remember reading something about them being too long to fit in the galant tank. Thanks again for the input.

Re: Fuel Pump Nightmare (pics)

i just blasted the area off with compressed air really good before i pulled the sending unit. i used a magnet in the tank to grab most of the shavings, but was out of options at the time, so i'm sure there's still some in there. if you're not drilling, don't sweat it. just cover the hole with a rag or something, and set a book or something on it too keep it covered well.

the T/E/L sending units are indeed too long. i think a few guys cut them down, and modded them to work though. it would be best if you can save yours though.

Man, in addition to that shitty splice above with the eyelet and post, this is what I found under the rest of the black tape. I cant imagine the losses the current had going through this line:


PB is amazing stuff... I went out and picked up a can of it and 14mm and 3/4 flare wrenches. It was a bitch, but not at all as bad as I was expecting:


Success!! (*edit: my wife said I was stupid for having that picture here lol)


I have taken that post off the 12V line and routed it back through the hole in the top of the plate. I plan on splicing the wire nicely to the source:

i wound up using a bunch of heatshrink tubing over the wire where it passes through the sending unit. i just kept adding a piece, and shrinking it, unti it was coser to the diameter of the hole. i mixed up a little epoxy, and filled in the gap with that. that way its solid, and sealed, and the edge can't cut through the wire...glad you got it apart in one piece. nice work man!

Ugg, I was wondering if there was a chance they wouldnt even be able to get a new unit. I dont think it matters though, if I heard right they are almost $500 for the assembly with the pump attached (cant get it w/o a stock pump) and I dont think I can drop that cash atm.

I will keep you posted, I tried calling already but nothing is open yet. Also the only assembly that will work is for a VR4 or GSX? Or would a FWD galant have the same setup?

The first thing he said was "ack" and my heart sank... said it was $610. But then he said wait thats the tank, pump, and sender. A second later he said "nice how does $63 sound". I was like hell yeah!

Thanks a lot for the suggestions guys. It hurts to say it but I dropped the cash on the new assembly.

I will rebuild the shitty one, but take my time with it and enjoy it instead of stressing out and trying to get it done this week under a time limit (I have 2 other big projects this week). Then I will be able to recoup some of the cost on the new one if that one comes out well enough to sell.

At least the parts guy was really nice and knew about the VR4, he hooked me up with a bit of a discount and it came to just under $600 after the taxes. I got it for 548.39 instead of 609.33

I should have it on Wed, but the latest it will be here is Fri. So knock on wood, I should have everything buttoned up before Monday. We shall see, thanks again you guys.

LMAO yeah Aaron, im sorry about that lol.

Well here is the deal, I was so close to pussing out and leaving the stock pump on there because i was deathly afraid of screwing it up transferring the walbro over. Also the filter on the walbro was disgusting and i didnt know if the stock one would fit. But I stuck with it and set it up beautifully (imho), the stock filter fits fine.

So I tested it and its not actively leaking, but... I didnt use any tape or dope on the fuel fitting threads and it seems like its seeping from there. Its not dripping yet but if I touch it after its been running I feel gas. Is there a special type of dope to use with gas or can i just use what i have? Or did I not tighten it enough, Im nervous to over-tighten lol.

I have a few nice pics that I will upload after I resolve the fitting issue. Thanks again.

you can use some pipe dope. alot of guys shy away from thread tape as i think it breaks down. i used that around the lines on my regulator, and they have been fine for 2 yrs. if you have the pipe dope, use a bit of that on the threads, and cinch it down pretty good. i had a few small leaks in other areas when i converted the whole system, but a quick 1/2 turn more and they sealed right up.

just run a bead of RTV around the flat edge of the cover, and let it set up before you install it. when it's still semi soft, but not sticky, screw it down kinda loose, and let it cure. when thats done (probably overnight) cinch down the screws, and voila! instant sealed gasket! good work, glad we could be of service!

I dont know how simple it is for a talon but I would imagine its the same turnaround time as it was for me. I would guess it depends on where you live, since Im in NYC there might be more options for dealerships to get parts, I dont know. I gave them my vin # and explained what I needed and they got it for me. He printed out a diagram of the part before I paid for it so I knew I was getting what I needed.

Only thing is I might have kinked the O ring on the top of the pump when I installed it into the assembly. When I left the car for over an hour it didnt start on the first turn of the key, but it did right away on the second. I will know for sure when I try to start it this morning.

The cover plate I have (see above pic) doesnt have the hole for the plug/grommet thing. It has a bent up lip that allows the wires to go through there. The connector doesnt have enough slack to be on the trunk side of the cover plate so its just under it in the well for the pump assembly.

Its probably just temporary because I want to find the real cover that has the hole for the plug/grommet.
