    Well, you've chosen to disregard good advice intended to help you not waste your time and money. Save the $15 and have it towed now (there is no "fuel pump sensor," unless you mean the sending unit...

    Did the wiring "look" like it has voltage in it? If not, you just froze your a$$ off for nothing but some practice changing fuel pumps and to lighten the wallet you carry around. It's always a...

    GM fuel pumps weren't as fragile in 88 as the later ones mentioned. Good advice on the noid light to check injector pulse. Forget the coil packs (and all ignition parts) because you already said...

    What are you thinking? You'll pay more than that for a mill-drill made out of stale Chinese food. Buy the Clausing...........great small mill.

    Thanx, Hugh. Yep, I did. I've used this lathe for many years. Something's gone wrong this time. Guess I'll just have to tear it down to see what's up.
