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.
picking up today after fuel pump replacement. last one change about 14 months ago thank God it was done by a AAA approved repair facility, 24 months or 24,000 mile warranty. it was about 14,000 miles. AcDelco pump failed, they told me it was the best pump to install so they are repairing for free parts and labor except for the new fuel filter.
