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.
