Yet again another breakdown. This time the mechanic states it’s the fuel pump from the tank which is cutting off and on. Question is will a pump that fits the Vauxhall Antara 2.2 184BHP be suitable for my Chevrolet Captivia LTZ with the same BHP. Reason being I can get one on eBay which lists the Vauxhall but not the Chevrolet for a fraction of the price of one specially listed for the Chevrolet

Danno, It is my understanding that the engine was the same between Antara & Captiva for the same year build.... but...... I do know that there was a gasket change on inlet manifolds and therefore other minor differences cant be ruled out.
If you have a 184hp (181 / 135Kw) and not the 161hp / 120Kw then if might be worth considering. (is there a returns policy?)

However........ before you purchase, you say the pump is "cutting on&off" . This implies it hasnt totally failed as such and I recall previous fuel pump discussions mentioning a corroded or defective terminal being the cause (often earths to chassis). Might be worth while exploring the earth and connector terminals first. It may be easier to simply create a new 'long cable' with alligator clips at each end and try clipping on different locations. This way you might be able to verify a defective supply in the existing.

The Advanced Search function might be worth exploring for discussions on this topic previously.

What do you mean the pump is causing breakdowns? Does it happen when you are driving along a motorway or in town or does it refuse to start or what?

Victor, Another 'hunt the thimble' post.
No diagnostic codes provided. A breakdown would record the cause.
We have to presume 'the mechanic' has tested basics like fuse loose in holder etc
