Fuel pump made a funny noise, then no start 200 1991

I arrived at work this morning, and when I shut off the ignition on my 91 245, I heard a funny noise I presumed was from the fuel pump. Went to start it again, no start. Of course, the first thing I did was check the fuses. They were fine, no blown or corroded up fuel pump or any other fuses. Then, I changed the fuel pump relay under the kick pass. panel. Still no start. I then got under the car, and beat on the fuel pump (with no one to help, It was not while being cranked over). It then started. And has started 3-4 times after.

Is there just a bad spot on the commutator/brush connection, and when I heard the funny noise, the armature just so happened to stop on that bad spot? Should I run out and change the pump right away, or do I have some time? I usually run marvel mystery oil in the gas, but don't have any in the tank at this time. MMO wouldn't touch that part of the pump anyway, right? Thanks!
