2004 VUE 2.2L
Default Fuel Pump Related Question

I had to replace my daughter's fuel tank due to a bullet hole. While removing the old one I broke one of the line connections and couldn't repair it. Replaced the entire assy with a new one. Now the car runs, but "sometimes" takes a bit to start. Checked the pressure and it is 60 psi while running, but immediately falls off to zero run the car is cut off. I assume there is a check valve that's bad. My question is: since the original pump never failed and I still have it, can I swap anything over that will correct this issue? Is the check valve integral to the pump or a separate piece?

I would look at possibly taking the connector/hose from the new pump to replace the broken one on the old pump.

Sadly many pumps have bad check valves out of the box. Especially those that sell for under $300.
