View Full Version : Fingers and Honks at Green Lights

Ok I have searched and searched for the answer to this.

I live in Michigan and only in August/Sept, meaning this year and last years august/sept, on hot days my car stalls out like it is fuel vapor lock or out of gas every 2 minutes. It is really annoying and in the busy city people get really mad when you cant move at a green light. I turn the car off and wait about 5 seconds then key to start and it runs for another 2 minutes.

I think the problem is a bad fuel pump but I want to make sure. The fuel pump is running and right before it stalls out the pump sounds like it is going in to "hyper-speed".

I don't want to replace it without knowing for sure because I have put way too much money in to this car... I have had almost every common problem listed on this site (lower intake, altenator, bad rotors, turn signal flasher, window scratches, window switch, etc).

I know if I make it to the colder months I will not have any problems.
