Brand name? Was the connector to the pump module changed?

The connectors give trouble, i always replace it along with a top drawer pump module with no problems later. AC or Delphi pump mod. Airtex ok.

ok so i should just break down and get a top notch pump instead of a nock off right.

Well first check the connector to the pump for burnt/melted condition IF pump is not running! Check fuel pressure make sure it not another problem like VAT (theft) system No dont just run out and buy parts until problem is properly diagnosed!! All we can do is suggest certain possible causes.However if pump replacement is required buy a good unit.

I say the pump is your trouble but check the harness connector inside to see if any sign of heat which is caused by high resistance which is caused by poor connection. Dont have to purchase pump from GM but get a quality part! New connector should come with pump module.
