Maybe a brass drift, in the absence of the proper tool?

Yeah, I just knocked the bung out with a screwdriver when I put the DW300 in mine. You have to take out the rear cargo deck (just a few screws here and there and it lifts out). Then there's a little access hatch. There's not a lot of room to work with, but it's doable. Unfortunately, the fuel sender unit is a bit recessed on the top of the tank, in a very isolated area of the car, so on cars used in salt belt states (like MO) it's almost certainly going to be crusty as hell.

On mine a little work with a hammer and a long screwdriver got the bung ring loosened and off, then I used a shop vac to suck up the half pound (only slightly exaggerated) of rust and dirt crap sitting on top of the sender, before i pulled it out. Otherwise that dirt and crap would have fallen into the tank.

I'm going to drive with the gas cap loosened today to see if it's any better.

That is right. Call the owner of the credit card that is paying for the trip and get the OK to bring car to shop.

It takes 40 minutes. Ask your parents for the 100 bucks and do it in a parking lot and drive home without this stalling or killing your main pump bs.

Got to Denver and stayed in a hotel, now we're about to head back to MO. If it were up to me I'd replace the pump, but it's not.

What're you saying it is? It's probably a combination of a bad in tank pump, high elevation etc.

Her parents aren't going to wait for me to replace the pump, they'd rather just tow it.

If it's getting towed, obviously doesn't apply. Thought they were going to try and drive it the rest of the way.

I would drive it just because I know it's fine after it sits for an hour or so.

You should pull at least part of the driveshaft if you're going to flat tow it more than 5 miles even with a manual.

You are correct, the car is sick. That's why it has vapor lock.
