    87, lx, 2.3, 5 speed. f.i. . when i turn the ignition switch i hear the fuel pump come on, then cutoff after prime. car starts but then i hear the fuel pump running and it runs until i shut the car down. is this normal for it to run while driving. and no its not straight wired to a continuous power source. thanks

    Good movie...

    Yes, that's perfectly normal. How do you expect the engine to get fuel if the pump isn't running? :scratch:

    Ditto. And the pumps on these cars are notoriasly noisy anyways. Kinda like the wonderful ford powersteering we were blessed with.
