problems especially for lean or rich engine diagnostic trouble codes

Do fuel system cleaners actually work? Testing Gumout "All-in-One"
This is the first test in a series of fuel cleaner test I will be
performing to see how fuel cleaners work and if they actually work. In this
video I tested Gumout "All in one" fuel system cleaner. I use a mini
borescope camera to look into the engine and see how dirty the engine is
before the fuel treatment and then after the fuel treatment.
I followed the instructions on the container and Gumout fuel cleaner did a
great job cleaning the shiny, sludge buildup, but did not work as well as I
would have thought on the clumps of hard carbon buildup. It did not clean
the cylinders as much as I thought it would since they do say one bottle
will clean the engine.
Here is the fuel cleaner I used:

How to install a fuel pump on grand prix gtp
In this video I am replacing a fuel pump on a Pontiac Grand Pirx but is
very common procedure when it comes to other gm cars around the same year
and gm decided to add a service port in the trunk area to remove the fuel
pump instead of removing the whole tank like in the late 80's to late 90's
Hope this video helps the DIY people out there who plan on doing this to
their own cars without having to pay someone an arm and a leg or get
ripped off to get a fuel pump replaced.
Cost of the fuel pump online was only $60, Labor was my own time.
Cost of pump at famous auto stores $251.99, Labor $90 an hour , so you
tell me who is ripping who off ? Seems like this world is a whole rip off
but with out it there would be no economy right ? That is why I save money
and even save money for my own customers and they always come back because
I treat them fairly and don't see them as dollar signs but also time is
money so you cant work for free either but be fair and you will always have

Thanks Jim for the sender, next time send the gasket as well.
