Can somebody tell me what are the symptoms of a bad fuel pump? I have a 95' Golf 2.0 with about 150K. This last week the engine sputters/hesitates when under trottle. If I'm sitting still -no problem. I can even rev the engine whilestopped and it's fine. If I drive "lightly", it's still OK. But if I accelerate moderate to heavy, the engine sputters and shakes like crazy. I thoughit was bad gas, so I put some "dry gas", but no difference. I even changed the fuel filter, but still no change. If it is the fuel pump, doe anyone know where to buy one inexpensively?
Sounds very similar to the problems I am having with my car. Tryed the plugs, wires, rotor, and cap, still not change in luck so i am goin to change the fuel pump and see.
This problem only happens when the car is fully warmed up correct? and runs fine when cold?
Thats EXACTLY what happens to my car. More pronouced pulsing idle when temp of car reaches 175 plus. In the cold its all good. I have changed all the things mentioned by all these guys with the only thing left to really check thouroughly is the vaccum leaks. Im starting to think it could be the fuel pump now?? Did you ever find out what the cause to your problem was??
