Fuel pump question

Hey all!

My truck will be fine for about a mile in the morning, then the SES light comes on and it has no throttle response and runs rough, like its tripping over itself. Then it will randomly go off and the throttle comes back but it makes a weird, loud, uneven, flutering hissing noise and jumps and bucks on acceleration with the uneven noise......

Could it be fuel supply as in the pump? It has over 290,000 miles.....

ok, so you removed the "pick-up" foot, of the sending unit, correct? Is the "mixing" chamber still in the equation, of the sending unit? If so, then you have YET to do the Hutch mod, meaning, its probably all clogged up and causing the fuel restriction problem. Drop the tank and have another go at it. Might as well had done it right the first time...

No, it wont. There's no "signal" going throughthe pcm, from anywhere on the fuel delivery system, to get a reading. Got to install a pressure signal at fuel bowl pre or post filter, to get reading...Maybe scan gauge comes with a "pigtail" to incorporate a signal for f/p, but you'll still need to install the pressure sensor at fuelbowl.

lol! I completely removed the mixing chamber. The screens were 95% or more blocked. I got rid of that, did my best to clean out the lines in the sending unit and added all the hoses like guzzles site says to. The only thing I did different was not having the foot, just making it longer and laying it on the bottom of the tank.
