fuel pump issues 1995 Legacy
Posted 15 May 2009 - 02:30 AM
have a 1992 Legacy sedan. I have had this problem twice now once about a month ago and just today. It acts like its starving for fuel sputter and then dies. Wont start and when you take the fuellines off the filter no fuel is coming out while you crank. First time I replaced the filter and added dry gas. Also took the fuel pump out of the tank and checked it . That was operating fine. I should mention when i took the fuel line off the filter it was under a lot of pressure. Ok back to the problem . I put the pump back in and tried it by cranking the enigine with the fuel line off it pumped. out line back on and the car ran fine. Today it did the same thing. I pulled the lines took the pump out again and it ran fine after it was put back in. Any help on this would be appreciated.
Also don't know if it is related but the tank has to be filled really slowly it keeps shutting off the pump. Seems like a venting problem.
Thank-you for any help. We live in a small town and the best mechanic in town has me replacing the fuel pumps saying water in the tank is the problem. I think there is another problem.

Replaced the fuel pump and no further problems. I do not know what the mechanism of failure was, but the fix has been solid.

but I came up to a stop sign which was on a little incline with a 1/2 tank and the car just died.. I tried to start it and nothing.. so I put the car in Neutral and back up.
From that I got the car started but it was rough.. I got it back in first gear and took off without it stalling.. that was about 2 months ago and never had any issues since then.. but then again I found a hose from the valve cover that was disconnected as well.
