WTF do so many people assume that all failures cause the same effect ????? Get it through your heads, it happened to me, pump failed, car ran on 3 cycinders (misfiring on 4,5,6) dumping fuel out one tailpipe due to the misfires, and it was all i could do to go 30mph .... Meanwhile smoking like hell due to the fuel in the exhaust....
I wish everyone posting that you don't lose that much power would shut up.... SOME times you won't lose power, but SOMETIMES YOU LOOSE A LOT OF POWER !!!!!
People who post like above are as bad as BMW, pretending like it's not a problem.....
