    You'll likely need to drain the tank too as separated fuel is garbage once it has happened. If the pump has any rust on parts your indicator of separation.

      Is there a device that allows you to introduce fuel through the fuel pressure schrader valve ? I would like to move the car a bit for when I am ready to get the pump in.

      thanks,

        Won't work, you can have all the fuel you want in there but unless it is pretty close to the pressure needed the engine will NOT run well enough to keep running.

          MadDog, How did the fuel pump change go? Did it fix your problem? Any issues? I'm tackling mine soon at 177,000 miles as a preventative measure.

            The neighbors gave me enough stink-eye about the car sitting so long at the curb, I decided to take it to a shop and get the fuel pump done professionally. So, now the car starts and runs fine. I am told the fuel relay was bad, as well as the fuel pump. The only problem now (I got it back a few days ago) is this odd, clunking sound coming from the back. I cant figure it out and I dont see anything obviously bad. Almost like someone left a screwdriver in the fuel tank or something.... : )

              The awful clunking was the swaybar now being tightened down enough. All working now, although my wife has filled up the side of the garage where the car parked with stuff. Now, onward to fix more stuff !
