My '05 XStar motor died and then wouldn't start a few nights ago. Fuel pump will prime when ignition key is on, but confirmed no pressure when testing last night. Best online price i could find for MC fuel pump replacement is $400.

I'm hoping to track down an Airtex E2044 at Napa or OReillys in the morning. I have the L18 8.1L engine. Will changing fuel pumps be a "straight swap" or is it much more complicated?

Great thread!

It was a straight swap for my x45 with the same 8.1 motor.

I have seen some guys freak out a little on this thread because the fuel pumps may not be the exact same size. IIRC, mine was a tad bit different, but fit perfectly in the module, and ran great. This is not like a nut and bolt that has to fit perfectly to work. It pumps fuel....

If you have it out you might as well put a new filter on it.

Great thread!
Autozone and Advance usually also carry that pump in stock... plus +1 on filter change.

I need to find a source for 1/4 1/2 stainless steal double ear clamps where you don't have to buy 100 units!

Just had this happen this weekend on my 2008 X-2. Would someone make me feel better and tell me what they believe is the proper part number for my replacement? I am seeing E2044 and E2065?

Thanks. Any help would make this first time replacer very happy.

This is what my label says now:

71-3428 Returnless Fuel System

DGB 98-002-3

The 65 is for 4cyl cars. The 44 is for full size v-8s, etc. My 44 has been trouble free since install.

Thanks! Did you replace something similar to mine?

What else is needed? Fuel line puller tool?

Will the auto parts store have the filter and it is it easy to identify?

Man oh man, you are taxing my memory. Fuel line puller and you may wish to have submersible fuel line on hand in case you can't salvage the present fuel line. Beyond that, I just can't recall. I have no independent recollection of the fuel filter. I posted the process on here at one point (along with several others) with pics that I've long since deleted. Anyway, it's here, somewhere, I think??

Gates SAE J30R10 part # 27093 5/16" is a good, but expensive, in-tank line. Problem is the 1/4" fuel reg barb. I think there's a way around this problem (leaving the orig hard line on the barb (cut at the barb end, and slipping the 5/16 line over it and clamping it appropriately.
