My VP44 had a fuel leak but it never just up and died on me. It probably leaked on me for about 2 or 3 months before I got the $$$ saved up for the HRVP44. Thing would blow white smoke all the time when it was cold and was just a 20 mph pedal to the floor turd on the road. If possible, see if you have any codes

Yep, same thing with my truck. My stock pump died and now my HRVP44 that is 7 month old died Wednesday. Both times it was the electronics, no codes on the dash and no warnnings just silence.

Right now I run an Airtex pump. Fuel pressure is constant at 17 psi , at wot it will drop to 15 psi. Next month I am going to put in an Airdog.

There is two types of failures...

Phyiscal Failure (Siezed rotor, damaged advancement piston, etc)

Or Electronic Failure

In either case error codes sometimes show up and other times they don't...
