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

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.

I don't have this problem because I prevented and I change the fuel filter once a year every 6,000 to 7,000 miles... since gasoline is always contaminated and clog the filter soon, and with a clog filter the fuel pump is working forced until is broken. If you change the filter every years with a normal average miles used... you will have a healthty fuel pump for long time. My fuel pump still working fine since I have my Safari almost 10 years.
