Hello, what kind of fuel pump did you use?
If it was just the pump it may not fix your concern. In order to fix it you want a pump assembly that includes the pickup tube and sender. This is what you need to correct your concern. When you removed the fuel pump you probably knocked the check valve loose. That is what causes the fuel system to lose its prime and cause a hard start after a cold soak.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
