Fuel pump

(2001 Chevrolet Blazer)
in Jamaica, NY on August 30, 2010
On 30, July 2008 a local mechanic replaced the fuel pump on my 2001 Chevy Blazer. On July 31,2010 my Blazer was towed and the same mechanic said that a fuel pump was needed. This was done. One week later the car stopped again. This time he said that there was a problem with the fuel delivery system and he did some work on the electrical system, he also replaced the fuel pump under warranty. One week later the car would not start after I filled the tank at the gas station. My gas needed light had flashed on. I rode with the light on for about 8 minutes before stopping for gas. I got to a station and turned the motor off , filled the tank. Car would not start. HELP. I have an appt with the dealer. Any other suggestion?

Hi, when working with the fuel system you must check the fuel pump relay, fuel pump resistance/continuity in wire harness and pcm/computer. Parts also espcialy fuel pump should be NEW from the dealer, NO AFTERMARKET OR USED. A common problem is the fuel pressure regulator. In situations like yours a full check with a diagnostic scaner will help find the problem. Its possible that the problem is not in the fuel system. try my shop gl Ted

Thanks. This sounds plausible. I wish you were in the Queens, NY area. At this point the car has to be towed. Thanks again.
Hi, let me know how it works out. gl Ted
