    Well my sister called me up yesterday and she said her car keeps on stalling out when started. She starts it, it runs for a second or two then dies and wont start again for about 10-15 min. I hooked my fuel pressure gauge to the filter banjo bolt and recreated the problem, 0psi on the fuel intake line.

    I figure its the fuel pump, maybe something stuck in the filter, there is no damage to the hard line from the tank to the engine bay, any other thoughts?

    oh yeah, new fuel filter and injectors 2 months ago

    Another thought, will the old fuel pump from my 97 civic fit in her car? will it flow enough fuel?
