Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Problems with the fuel pump, put 3 pumps in, still pumps lightly but no pressure the relay is good. the fuses are all good and power is still there. Guage does not work, is there something i could do to get this to work or are these pumps are defected?
It really sounds to me you have a grounding issue with the pump and sending unit.
If the gauge is indicating a past full reading, the ground is open. An open or poor ground will also cause the weak fuel pump pressure.
Find the black wire at the fuel pump connection and measure resistance to ground, should read near 0.00 ohms.
Good luck and let me know.

Sounds like a bad fuel filter, the fuel filter for this car is also a fuel regulator, when the filter gets clogged it bypasses back to the fuel tank, the fuel filter is a little expensive, around $60, but I bet it fixes the problem, fuel pressure should read around 55 psi
