Well. Installed new pump, sock, and filter. I'm so proud of myself. First time ever changed a fuel pump by myself. Sucker fired right up on the first crank, I've put about 100 miles on it already and it's running like a champ.

Used my iPhone, excuse misspellings and the such

Those who advised me to do change everything can now tell me, they told me so. I replaced the pump and sock. Filter was in the mail. Put the pump in the test. Worked for two days. Went to start it today. Dead. Pulled the pump and the pump is not giving me a reading. So lesson learned. Do not replace the pump to even test it if you don't replace the filter too.

Default Re: Fuel Pump

The right way to do it is to clean the tank while your at it, and make sure you clean around the sending unit nut really good with compressed air so you don't get dirt in the tank when removing it. If there is dirt in the tank it will keep ruining your pumps. Be car full gas is very flammable. If the truck was ever parked for a few months the gas gets deposits over everything, and it has to be cleaned out, because it ruins the pumps. There is probably a lot of dirt built up right where the pumps strainer goes waiting to be sucked up by the new pump there usually is. All the wires and connections on the sending unit can wear out, and get green stuff i inside the insulation causing high resistance, and somtimes the pump doesn't get power or ground. Be car full with the float and its resistor they are very fragile if you move it to much they tend not to work right when you put th back in, then your fuel gauge doesn't work.
