I may be looking for a fuel pump for maintenance and also notice my car stutter a bit yesterday. Let me know what you have.

Thx

I have at least a dozen working OEM fuel pumps but can't confirm any of them to be below 69k miles.

How much for these pumps Adam? Maybe worth having a cheap one in the trunk as a spare to get you home for the cars still on the original pump. Pretty easy to install in a parking lot if stranded. Only time I was stranded by the M5 was due to fuel pump failure.

I sell working OEM pumps for $50 shipped that are complete and ready to install on the side of the road. :)

Just a quick note whoever needs to replace Fuel pump do it, what a difference it makes in performance and power delivery from the old no more hesitations or jerkiness all gone Just do it.

Yeah I paid about $150 I think to get the car home, was a few years ago now. A $50 pump & few tools in the trunk to get you going again is a steal, plus you keep the spare pump on hand when your new one comes in.

Interesting. Maybe we should do a fuel pressure check with a new pump vs. an old pump and can the data can be used to determine when our pumps are getting weak.
