It could be the cat too or I had reduced power right before my water pump went out.

Did the dealer see the car before making the assumption that fuel pump needs replacing? If you have a GXP, fuel pump could mean either the low pressure or the high pressure pump. Did he specify?

Reduced engine power could be any number of things. I had that message when I had an exhaust leak before the cat.

Just went through it. Was coming back from a road trip and stopped at a light. When it turned green I tapped on the gas and the car did a loud backfire. Check engine light came on and "engine reduced power". I pulled over and shut her down. Restarted it and still had the check engine light and "reduced power". I thought it might be my MAF sensor as I had that go on my way to the Asheville Nationals last year. Symptoms were the same. You are driving with no power / pep.

I got to a GM dealership and they checked the code and it was a fuel pump failure. They were closing up for the day. So after checking with the mechanic I decided to carry on home on the back roads. Four hours later, I made it.

Took my Sol to my dealership and mechanic and it was the fuel pump at the front of the car that was cooked. Part # 12646884 and a pipe part # 12615401.
The codes were P0087, P0088 and P0089. Parts and labour came in around $1200. I have an extended warranty that expires this September. All I had to pay was $100 deductible.:thumbs: It was a good time for this part to fail. My GM extended warranty has payed off big!
Hope this helps!:thumbs:

Anyone ever hard this error message. Dealer says fuel pump, which is about 1100 - 1200.
Hello,

I am deeply sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with you vehicle. Please private message me if I can be of assistance.

Safe travels,

I would suggest 2 things: First...if you don't have an OBD reader, go to an auto parts store that reads them for free. Then check here to see what the codes are. http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f11/list-gm-odb-codes-53796/

Secondly, if the codes do read fuel pump...contact GM Customer Service here, as Jennifer said previously.

In the past some dealerships have quoted a price without checking IF the repair is still covered under warranty. Do your own homework before you authorize any repairs.

I am so glad I paid the extra $25 a month for the extended warranty as that would be a tough one to swallow. Good luck and I hope you get off easy.
