99 9-3 fuel pump help!!

Driving home from work about 3 weeks ago, and car just died! got it towed home, narrowed the problem down to my fuel pump. luckily I had an extra one kickin around from an old 99 9-5 I still have from years ago. Instead of dropping my gas tank, I cut a whole in the floor and accessed the pump through the back seat. I successfully changed it with no problems, so I thought. Had it running for 2 days and realized I had to do it all over again and rotate it so my float was in the correct place (gas gauge was on E even after putting much gas in) while unplugging the pressure line, I broke the yellow clip holding it in place, ugh. So I am now in search of another fuel pump.

the orings atop the fuel pump, on the check valves are extremely tight.

my stupid guess says they wont ever work themselves out on their own.

you probably don't have much of an emergency although I can understand the need to repair...

It screws in to the top of the plastic. You will see when you get it . Be careful not to overtighten the screw. Be sure to wipe a little grease on all o rings before putting back together. You are doing good you already know more than some people.

Well i guess it would be an emergeny when you are driving down the road smoking a butt any your pressure line blows off and pump starts spraying the bottom and inside of the car.
Dont listen to that guy

Yeah that's completely 100% wrong, it will absolutely blow the line right out of there, don't even try it. You'll be stranded with gas everywhere

Had a check valve held in place for many many months with just the dried oring.. until I was able to get the hold down clamp replaced

I don't post shit I think....

as mentioned, I see the need to replace but its not life or death.... I am sure he can get on down the road until his part arrives..

I put money on it... and that's 100% correct... may not be the ideal way to run the car and not the safest, but it will drive..

its a safety part for sure... but can be done without for a short wile..

if your crazy about it, slap some duck tape on it until you get the new part...

First off its a she
Second off its life or death if you are a smoker
Third its a necessity not a safety
Fourth have you seen what gas does to ducktape
Fifth thank you for proving my point

I had the exact opposite happen. I don't post what I don't know about. Now what?

You got lucky once so everyone else will too I guess?

yes it is a "she" so thank you, and everything I've learned i've learned from the best. and it is life or death cuz i am a smoker... I was at a friends shop working on it the second time when i broke the clip and it was only .6 miles from my house, so i booked it home and she died on me again but i was able to coast home, and yes my pressure line blew, and my back seat was covered in gas!

Turn the key on and let the pump prime, then try staring the car. If it starts easier it means you are losing fuel line pressure back into the tank when the car isn't running.
