How is everyone doing tonight?

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:52 PM)

some of the 99 pcms will work take a 01 bin, those you can change the vin # ive found.

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:50 PM)

the vin is kept in the pcm, you cant change the vin @ with dhp on 01 up cars, so if you use a the cars pcm with dhp it will retain the cars vin#. so if you flash a new bin to the pcm, its vin stays put.

@  RacingRegal36 : (08 July 2017 - 11:05 PM)

i need a bin that will work with this vin: 1g4cu541914206781

ISS got shortened during install somehow and had to lengthen back to size.

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:15 AM)

...if I am able to bolt down both ends with little resistance than I would imagine it is properly seated?

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:14 AM)

Swapped rack and pinion, not sure if ISS is seated.

Hello every one! I have a 98 Buick Regal GS Supercharged, So long story short my regal has been siting till I had the money to get a fuel pump.

So I got the new fuel pump from rockauto.com for about $60 with S/H. So I put the thing in yesterday but I look at the hook ups on the top and the new fuel pump came with a new GM wiring harness so I replaced it, but on my regal I noticed that the old pump only had 1 wire hook up to the old pump but there is 2 spots for wires?

I looked at some pics/vids but I cant find anything about why my regal has only 1 wire to hook up to the fuel pump, when there is 2 spots on the fuel pump for hook ups.

I also looked underneath the car and no other wires are there.

SO I just need to know if its goanna be okay or do I need to fix this?

Thanks,

BillyrayM

One should be for the fuel pump and fuel level sender unit.  Four wires.

 

The other is for the pressure sensor and is part of the EVAP system (3 wires).  It's the sensor that sets the check engine light if you leave the gas cap off.   Maybe someone removed this.

 

 

I'd hook up the one connector and if everything seems OK, then don't worry.

my stock f/p two plugs, looks like 4 wires. i replaced this and also had to cut and splice the new plug on there.

worst comes to worst, swap the pump from the new canister to your old canister and put the stock plug back on, if you left its wires  long enough. 

 

and grease the piss out of the o ring  then smear more grease on it once its seated under the canisters top lip, then push down and wiggle till it pops in place and dont move side to side in the hole, or you'll be back in there doing it again when it leaks after you fill the tank up.

Okay sorry for the late response,

The wire I'm talking about that was never hook up is the "pressure sensor".

So I put the new pump in and cut the old fuel pump & fuel level sender unit wire plug to replace it with the new GM fuel pump & fuel sender unit wire plug that came with the new fuel pump. The hard part was the big O-Ring like you guy's said it would be but I believe its on tight, I also used the old fuel pump rubber gasket(was in great shape) because the new gasket just seemed way to big and thin.

I still have a few more things to do on my regal before I can start it, so I am going to try to get it back together with in a few days to update you guy's on the status of the fuel pump(if it works or leaks). As I am a new member of the site I didn't think of taking any pics to show you guy's so sorry for that.

But you guy's have help out a lot so thanks for the help and support.

Thanks BillyrayM

i forgot to say that about the pump O ring. the old stock one is a much better fit. 

 

you can still get that ring back on with the pump not seated right, i know this first hand lol  grease made it pop in place. i failed at it two times before not using grease, found the o ring laid up on the level sensor in the tank both times. 

 

fill the tank, you will know asap if the o ring is in place or not, cause it leaks and smells of gas pretty bad.
