    Another cause of fuel pump failure is driving on E for too long. Fuel acts as a lubricant/coolant for the pump. Once the fuel level gets too low, air gets in and causes the pump to overheat.

    Glad to hear you fixed it. Def cant go wrong with the racetronix pump. Pretty much a plug and play and if your there anyway to check things out, might as well replace that puppy. I replaced mine last year and couldn't be happier.

    First, glad you identified the problem and fixed it. Enjoy your new car.
    Second, as a general rule it is very unwise to purchase a used car from a private party without having it checked by a professional mechanic first. Most folks don't do that because they don't want to spend the $100-$150 that a check costs. But you have to remember that used car sales, unless they are from a dealer and the car has a specific warranty, are as is. No recourse for the buyer if the thing turns out to be fatally flawed after the transaction has taken place. I've bought many performance and sports cars in my life from a '72 240Z in 1973 to a '69 Mustang fastback in 1994 to a '69 427 Corvette in 2005. The Z car and the Stang were from a total strangers and the Vette was from an old friend. These cars were professionally evaluated before I ever handed over any money. Any deal with a stranger should be at arms length. I had the Vette checked because I didn't want any latent problems that neither he or I knew about to ruin a very long friendship. Good practice to follow.
