I have a 1998 Toyota Camry. It’s got 176,000 miles. Last week in the morning the car started fine. Drove it 10 miles to work. When I got off I went to start the car and it didn’t start unless I sprayed starting fluid. It would start for 2-3 sec and turn off. I contacted 3-4 mechanics and auto part stores like autozone and all of them told me my fuel pump is had. So I ended up getting the car towed and today I brought a new bosh fuel pump and strainer. I connected the new fuel pump to the electric cable to see if it works. Not surprising the new fuelpump worked. So I ended up hooking the original fuel pump to the eclectic relay and to my surprise the original fuel pump worked the same way as the new one. So I ended up putting the old fuel pump back inthe tank. Drove the car 16 miles and it drove fine. I come home wash it and start it. the fuel pump died again. Idk what the issue is? The fuel pump worked fine and now I don’t hear anything. Could I need a whole new fuel pump module? If it was the fuel pulp fuse, then the fuel pump wouldn’t get power at all. Not even the new one.

You have driven the car for over 176,000 miles, so please do expect some wear and tear.

 

My call would be that you will need to change the whole Fuel Pump Module.  Yes, your new fuel pump worked, but only for some time. Hence, it was not just a faulty part but a fault with the whole module. Anyway, were you able to use a scanner to test the problem?

I would have NOT installed the old fuel pump. Just because the fuel pump turned on when you connected it doesn't mean it is not failing.

Get the new pump in there and if the problem persists you can look else where. If you don't want to spend money on the new pump, do further testing to verify the fuel pump is not the issue. You can do a fuel pressure test. Check voltage at the fuel pump etc.
