I purchased my Chevrolet trailblazer in November 2014. I have since had the fuel pump replaced 3 time's , with the last being done not even 1 month ago. 2 day's ago I went to leave and my vehicle would start but not turn over. My uncle came over and done a fuel pressure check and a few other thing's to check for a possible problem or location. It is the fuel pump AGAIN!! Now #1) I know that I have not purchased 3 brand new fuel pumps and them all be manufacture defaults, that's crazy to think that. #2) It has been 3 different reputable mechanic's each time, so to say the repairman isn't changing it right sounds just as crazy... between the 3, they're obviously not making the same mistake... SO WHAT IS GOING ON, AND MAKING MY FUEL PUMP GO OUT SO OFTEN?? Please help ..because I've all but given up on my once loved trailblazer . And will probably never own another chevy as long as I live.
fuel gauge reads empty no matter how much gas is in tank
I just had this problem the Saturday night before last weekend. My truck was running fine a hour before I tried to go out for the evening. It turns out to be the fuel pump. I had it replaced that following Tuesday. Now it's ok but something weird happened as to when it was replaced the gas gauge was correct. Now the gas gauge went haywire again. Other than my fuel pump is new and my truck is running fine again.
fuel pump failure on 2005 trailblazer fuel filter is inside pump on this year, so it is not changed except when pump fails and has to be replaced
