Hello-2001 Chevy Blazer and had replaced the fuel pump 2x and noticed the wires are overheating in the top cap and i checked the other 2 as I save parts have the same problem now it has to be fixed again and I'm worried it could cause a fire while driving my kids around-Anyone know why or how I can fix it or if there is some kind of recall on it? Let me know and Thanks for reading this! Have a great day!

Did new pump come with updated wire connector and if so did you install it.

yes all was put in but the connector on the top of the fuel pump assembly melted on 1 of the 4 prongs inside and now it wont start

Heat comes from hi resistance, hi resist. comes from poor connections! Sounds like you need a new pump and partial harness with connector. Look close at terminal that melted, find out which one it is and what it does and check that circuit.
