Torq told me there wasn't a new sock to be had but we were also talking about his pump at the same time so maybe he meant there won't be a new sock included with his fuel pump kit. I could have misunderstood.

Do we have the part number for the sock?

Well when I look up the part no for the fuel pump, it includes the strainer (sock). So that's probably why.

Cleaning the sock

I used brake cleaner.

Start from outside in. In other words hit the outside with the solvents,..it will break free the inside deposits which have made there way into the mesh. Hold the sock upside down let the flowing solvents irrigate the deposits out. There will be some still in there. Take a small thin flat head screw driver and gingerly agitate any stained or clogged areas. Irrigate with more break cleaner.

For the tough spots:

I used a wet/dry shop vac. Found the smallest end hose,... then I used a piece of old bike tire inner tube with a small straw, taped it up to seal it. Inserted the small straw into the sock access tube, irrigated from the outside again with brake cleaner while the vac drew it and whatever debris was left. Spanky clean,....like new!:cool:

So I've not been on here in a bit. I finally got around to doing this today and wow! I'll put pics up in a bit as I can't figure out how to add them from my phone.

So I finally got hyundai to replace my angry fuel pump...about time. I revisited this thread to brush up on the subject to make sure all fuel related aspects are addressed while they have access. I thought I read somewhere that the fuel lines should be purged. Ive already did the techron, every oil change, does that clean up on the injector end.
just wanna make sure theres not a spec of any foreign materials anywhere in the system. so what about purging and anything else I should know. Really what have loved to get some updated injectors in, but atleast I wont have to worry about pump failure.

I just came upon this thread and wanted to say I have a 2015 Forte and my sock had junk in it just a few a few months of owning it. I was told to check it a guided through the process back in Dec to early Jan (if I remember right)
Here are some pics

I will be checking it again here soon. It did have a lot in the bottom of the cup also and after reading this thread I am going to order it to

Yes, I'm bringing this one back from the dead.

While replacing my stock fuel line, I figured I'd clean out the filter. Wow is all I can say.






I even put the air hose through it and all kinds of garbage came out. Was almost black. This thing was nasty. 9300 miles is all I have too. So....I'd say to go ahead and clean yours out folks. Mine is a 16 so the majoroty, if not all, will have some sediment in there.

13EliteVT : This debris is common across many plat forms and at times cause major issues with how the vehicles perform. Debris can get to injectors and block fuel flow inducing more knock potential (lspi) thus is why good filtration between tank and injectors is crucial. Especially with common rail and gdi motors such as in the VT as they are more prone to this happening.

Do you need to drain the line to check the LPFP like when you replace the line?

Don’t mean to revive an older thread, just want to post my experience. Had a check engine light pop up a week ago. I was driving about 50mph on the side road of the highway when my car went limp mode, couldn’t go past 3k rpms. Managed to drive it home safely and took it to the Hyundai dealer a couple of days later. They provided me with the codes and a whopping $1060 repair bill to replace the fuel pump assembly and O ring. $433 for the fuel pump assembly and $4 for the O ring plus labor cost. My car is a 2016 Veloster Turbo Manual w/ about 61k miles.

Part numbers
Complete Fuel Pump Assembly 31110-2v601
O Ring 311231R500

CEL’s
Code P0191
Secondary code P2191

Decided to take my car from the dealer and source the parts myself. Had to pay $98 for the diagnostic. Found the oem parts online at a discounted price, more thank likely the same ones they were gonna order at the dealer but trying to charge me MSRP price, not shaming the dealer since I know it’s all business. $320 for both parts plus $10 for shipping and days later I have the new parts at my doorstep. Removal and installation of the new parts was made easier with the help of this thread and thank you for everyone that had helpful hints along the way. Long story short the car is running strong so far with the new fuel pump assembly, technically only needed a new fuel pump but oem ones are more expensive if you ordered just the fuel pump compared to the whole assembly. Cleared the check engine light at my local mechanic shop. Took some picture of the gunk in the old assembly and although at the dealer they couldn’t pinpoint why my fuel pump failed, I am almost certain it was because of this gunk in the assembly and filter sock.
