Chevrolet Express 1500 Problem
Engines Affected: 4.3L V6, 5.0L V8, 5.7L V8, Gasoline
Average Mileage: 124,675 mi (20,100 mi - 191,000 mi)
It has left me standed a couple of times.
It would bog down and look power then pick up slowly . It wouldn't start half the time the gas indicator would say there was gas when there wasn't. Replaced the fuel pup. Recommend only new pump

i have gone through several different fuel pumps none seem to last very long .replaced all parts still same problem. no fix yet
Had the fuel pump replaced 3 years and 30,000 miles ago and was just sitting in traffic idling and the fuel pump went out again. It cost me $955 including the fuel filter replacement. One mechanic said running low on gas makes the in-tank fuel pump heat up and another said that running the tank low causes settlement to clog filter. I have gone the whole life of several vehicles without replacing the fuel pump (mechanical in old vehicles) ands this is getting ridiculous.
