    hey guys, my fuel pump is dead!, so i jacked the car up thios morning to discover that my fuel pump wasnt a vl fuel pump (which i already have) but this little black one with a + and - coming out of the pump, no teminals like a vl pump. my observation was that my serge tank also has a + and - to it aswell. is there a pump inside a serge tank too? if there is how do i know if that pump is dead and not the little black box one?

    thanks heaps

    It would be weird if you did have a pump in the surge tank. But if you do, then that is ok I guess.

    If you have a big VL pump, then you want that after the surge tank, pushing fuel towards the motor.

    Any smaller pump should do between the tank and the surge tank.

    i have a feeling there might be a fuel pump inside the serge tank.

    so i doubt it would be a vl one there. why else owuld i have wires ruinning into my serge tank?
