Will it hurt my D90 if...(fuel pump question)
So my '95 NAS D90 3.9 quit last week, and I drained and dropped the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump. The car started and ran fine after that, although I noted that there were only 8.7 volts to the fuel pump fuse. While on a test drive, it quit entirely, in the middle of nowhere of course. I had it towed home and determined that there is now no voltage to the fuse supplying power to the fuel pump.
What might be the possible causes? Could this be the result of the failure of the resistor attached to the MAF wiring harness? Other things to try?
I jumped the fuse to see if it would start with power from the adjacent fuse and it started right up. Since the truck is in rural Maine, spares are neither plentiful nor nearby and I was wondering what would be the consequences of jumping the fuse and just supplying power from the adjacent fuse for the fuel pump until I get necessary parts. Where on the spectrum from "smoldering carcass of my burned up Rover" to "inaccurate fuel gauge readings" are the consequences?
Thanks in advance.
