That pump might look the same as ur stock one but its probably flowing more fuel than necessary. I would go with right pump.

Why am I having fuel issues with a 97' f-250 7.3 powerstroke, put new sensors on everything, new fuel lift pump, glow plugs,filter, new tank filter, cleaned all the lines from tank to the fuel bowl, s

If this situation occurs after a period of time then check the tank vent correctly at the vent valve on top of the tank. If it occurs reasonably quickly then check the fuel return lines from the injectors to the tank for obstruction ,kinks ,squashed etc preventing the fuel free access to the tank. check the pressure regulator to the pump is holding sufficient pressure to maintain pressure to the pumpin the pump

You've already replaced most of the stuff I've guessed, unless perhaps the fuel pump is faulty or there's something partially clogging the fuel line. Maybe put a fuel system cleaner additive to the tank? Other thing is perhaps the coil.

What causes my 1999 grand am gt to sputter when i put it in drive or in reverse. im hearing numerous reasons but i would like to know exactly before i spend too much money to have it fixed.

Before listening to someone telling you to replace plugs & wires an filter an injector cleaner etc. An when that doesn't fix the problem they say the MAF sensor or coolant temp sensor ,throttle position sensor . Spend a 100 bucks for diagnostics an then know for sure whats wrong . So many sensors an electronic's on you vehicle . See this guy above isn't a tech . back yard shade tree probably . He is all ready telling change the filter an if that doesn't work change the plug's an wires an this an that .
Have scan data checked first ,before replacing any parts . I have thirty years experience , Dealer ship , independent repair shop , own shop , mobile diagnostic tech . I charge $24.50 to hook up scan tool ,factory scan tool , an view engine sensor data . Could most likely be a bad or dirty mass air flow sensor . O2 sensor .

Rough irratic idle. have replaced air filter, plugs, fuel filter, top and bottom o rings on injectors, #4 injector,Idle air control, MAP snsr, intake air snsr, upstream o2 snsr. had GM do a scan. they...

throttle position sensor, egr valve, coolant temp sensor, but really unless you are having a problem with the PCM it would show a code if any of those were out.

possibly a weak fuel pump? you would want to find out the operating pressure for your vehicle and either test it or have it tested if you are nervous around the fuel system

the fuel filter you changed, was it inline or in the tank? most of todays vehicles will have a filter mounted on the fuel pump inside the tank, some have both in-tank and inline.

just a few thoughts,
hope this helps!

o2 is a sensor. You could try replacing the correct one (up to 4 o2 sensors are possible any given vehicle). If check engine light is still on, have the codes cleared, have scan performed again to get the fault codes for possibly the specific o2 sensor. Hope this is helpful.

Change your spark plugs, wires, and fuel filter. If that doesn't solve the problem, could be o2 sensor, unfortunately I'm not sure where the location for that is either. Hope it helps.
