RE: [DML] Re: Fuel pump Buzz/Hum and engine cutting out briefly

Thank you all for your advice on this topic.  I was glad to not only see
that there was a ton of information provided, but also that others have had
the same issue.

Just to clarify:  Rob Grady did recently tell me at the DMA Spring Social
that I should look to replace the fuel filter soon (which was the only issue
he pointed out on my car after inspecting it) 

My car is a 5 speed manual transmission, and I was just below 1/2 tank of
fuel, and driving areas with many uphill climbs.   I do not have the heat
shield (yet) on my car.

I will look to replace the fuel filter, pickup hose, and put the heat shield
in place within the near to immediate future.

When this happened how much fuel was still in the fuel tank? This symptom
usually indicates a problem in the fuel tank. Mostly noticeable when the
fuel level is low. Common reasons include a dirty fuel filter in the tank,
incorrectly installed parts, an old, soft pick-up hose than either collapses
under vacuum or kinks. The pick-up hose may also have a hole in it and is
sucking air when the level gets low. If the pump is noisy all the time (even
when the fuel tank is
full) the fuel pump is due to be replaced.
