1998 vw golf fuel pump out

Asked by GuruQXXCM Nov 15, 2019 at 10:39 PM about the 1998 Volkswagen Golf

Question type: General

So I bought a 98 vw golf gti vr6 and the fuel pump
was out, so I bought a brand new pump (just the
pump not the assembly) off rockauto, changed it
out and it worked for a little then gave out again. So
I bought another fuel pump (this time the whole
assembly, housing and all) changed it out, once
again worked fine for the whole test run came
home shut it off, cranked it again to see if
everything was good and it was! BUT the next day
went to take it for a stroll , NOW the car won’t start
AGAIN! Took off the out going hose on the fuel
pump and cranked it to see if the pump is giving
gas, ONCE AGAIN no fuel pumping out! I don’t
wanna buy another pump because obviously
something else’s wrong that the pump keeps giving
out. If anyone else has encountered this problem
pls help!
note* when I bought the car, it had a push button
that a previous mechanic macgyvered from the
starter to the battery. Would this possibly be the
culprit to my fuel pump problems pls help!
