Default Car just "bogges down" after alittle more than idle??

Two weeks ago i noticed my car while tryin to pass someone just gave out(bogged) when was hard on the gas. It has just got worse since, cant really get above 3000rpm unless at almost no throattle. Took to Subaru dealer today and they said that the fuel pump was showing fine pressure at idle but wasnt at anything more. They quoted me $560 to install and it was going to take them 7 days to get it. I denyed considering i drove 2 hours just to get there. Ive changed front 02 and fuel filter since this started, NO HELP. Completely stock engine?


Any suggestions on what to use for a fuel pump, go for new subaru one or some kind of After Market, please help, i aint got 600 dollars lying around need help on what to do. Think me and my dad can put a new fuel pump in its just what to use???

Thanks

I would suggest going to a pick-n-pull and seeing what you can get. That $560 dollar quote is probably mostly Labor, although it shouldn't take that long to change a fuel pump.

I would just go with another stop pump. I looked one up on a website and it was $180 plus shipping.

A walbro should run you $85 and take you about 15 minutes to install. Dealerships are licensed r@pists...

When you were trying to pass, what rpm do you think you were coasting at?

Im not intirely sure, i think i down shifted and was runnin around 4, but now theres none of that its keep it on cruse, take it off up hills because it will just start appliing more throattle and that just slows it down and it like starts surging, i also think there could be a chance that the little pick-up screen could maybe be plogged
idk i said this up there but its probably important, well going around left hand corner with around a 1/4 tank of gas or less the car just dies, so idk

O and has anyone does this, where exactly is the pump on these cars, and why did the subaru tech say that it would be better to go factory than aftermarket because aftermarket doesnt have everything the factory one does.(everything????)
THANKS Guys

The pump is 185$ at subaruparts.com.

What's the other 375 dollars for?

Matt Monson is right, it takes maybe 1/2 hour to install.

Judging from the time you say is required to install the pump, I am assuming this fuel pump is not located in the gas tank, right?

It is in the tank...but it's a snap to remove and replace. Remove rear seat and back, open pass side access cover, remove lines, 8 nuts and wiggle the assembly out.

Installation is reverse of removal.

Just don't overtorque the nuts on the studs securing the assembly.

And do not cause any sparks. It's probably better to run out of gas first, eh?

Not necessarily, an empty tank will explode. A full one would flash and then burn but hopefully you won't get the explosion.

A cup full of water and a whole bunch of alka seltzer might produce enough co2 to help prevent sparks. And you can drink it should you start getting nervous
