Just replaced fuel pump and filter . . . 5.7 runs strong cool . . . motor quite while on the freeway . . . was towed to a shop, sat the weekend, started & ran fine on Monday; the shop ran a diagnostic check . . . NO ERROR CODES???????? . . . fuel pressure was 55 . . . drove it home 140 miles with no problem . . . gas pedal seems a little mushy, but maybe it's my lack of confidence . . .

    I was driving on the freeway at 60mph and suddenly nothing,the engine had just quit running. I took it to the local automotive electric shop and found out it was the battery and positive cable that needed replacing. Turns out the side mounted battery post are not of the best design and corroded everything.



    $220 later no issues.

In regards to the issues....I went through this with two GM service vans...and it is the connector just before the fuel pump...the resistivity is changed somehow...the solution is to cut out the connector and hard wire it...soldered if possible...the truck will run better....but the gas guage will not show correctly....if you do not do this ....you will replace the fuel pump in 3-5000 miles...GM does not consider this a recall issue at this time....we spent over 3000 dollars out of pocket unitl I finally got fed up and fixed it myself...being stranded 3 states from home...
In my Humble opinion....this is why almost all( in tank) fuel pumps go bad...because that was 100,000 miles ago and the fuel pressure is still factory specs...better fuel economy also...
Best to you,

I hope you bought the fuel pump from the dealer, if not expect it to go out within 3 months.

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.


Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

I ran out of gas and put gas in out of a gas jug the car started but is running rough and is worse when i push on the gas petal


you need 4 or 5 gallons gas to be on safe side.could be too late damage fuel pump.never run vechicle low on fuel.fuel pump needs gasoline to keep it cool and lubricated.add more gas see if engine run better.if not i would change fuel filter all sediment was disturb when you add gas to empty tank when you poured gas in fuel tank sediment break up stop up fuel filter.change fuel filter see if car run better if not more like fuel pump over heat and damaged pump motor bearing.

Check engine light flashing a code. what does this mean


Please visit http://www.troublecodes.net/neon/

for clarification of your error code. But I strongly believe you fixed a low rated fuel pump.

also from your explanation you got code 55 which means no error code was recorded.

Rate this please.
