I replaced the fuel pump, but it runs like crap now. The relay, and fuses r fine. It spits and sputters, and won't accelerate at all. I don't have a lot of cash to sink into it, so hopefully I can get a idea of what's wrong with help from someone here

    If you haven't got another car yet , I have some questions.You stated "fuel pump stops working and smoke started rolling out of my console" Did you replace the fuel pump yourself or did you have it done by someone else? ALSO ...was smoke coming out of your console BEFORE or AFTER the fuel pump quit and the car stalled? do you have a factory service manual? what is the location of the fuses and relays you tested? what type of fuel pump did you put in? aftermarket pump only , OEM complete assembly , other?
