    Bad Walbro Fuel pumps??

    Just a quick question about Walbro 255lph fuel pumps. Anyone else had an experience like mine where they had a new fuel pump go bad after just a few miles? I had one go bad on me after less than 2k miles that stranded me in the middle of nowhere. 250 dollar tow and 1 new fuel pump later my car is running strong again. I plan on calling Walbro and seeing if they will reimburse me for my trouble. I know it's a long shot but hopefully they have some sort of warranty for issues like this.

    I also have a walbro fuel pump. Before it went bad, did you ever have a smell of gas in your car or did it just all of a sudden punk out on ya? Good luck to ya on getting somethin out of all this.

    Nope, I was passing some trucks on a slight hill and right after I got around them my car just died. After that it would start but wouldn't rev past 2k without dying, then it wouldn't start at all. lol The reason I fiugred out it was the fuel pump was that I couldn't hear the whine right as I turned the key on so I checked to see if it was getting power and it was. Replaced the pump and it fired right up and has been running fine ever since.
