The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start on GMC Savana 1500

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

My GMC Savana 1500 JUST TURNED "Literally" 125,000 miles, when One minute it ran like a new van, to, Cranking only-No Start. I had it towed into my Honest mechanic and he said I needed a Fuel Pump. I also had that thought because my son and his wife had Chevy Silverado's and Blazer (same engine) that did the same, TWICE EACH.!!! So I got a "Delphi Fuel Pump" so I would not have to pay Big Bucks to fix this again a 2nd time...Like they did. It cost a little more, But I am sure it is worth it for a good quality Fuel Pump. Trust Me I've seen it...Spend the extra money and get a Great Quality "DELPHI Fuel Pump".
