I drove to the post office my truck was a little before E came out the truck wouldnt start. Got it towed to house. A mechanic looked @ it and he said i needed a fuel pump. The next day i went and put the key in and it started up if i needed a fuel pump wod it start up ?
I drove my blazer home from work, an hour later I tried to start it and it started and died. It would not start again. My mechanic says it is the fuel pump. I towed it to the garage and he's repairing it now.
put fuel in throttle body and then it started. acted like there was a clogged fuel pump. runs fine now but for how long?
I had to replace the fuel pump twice. First time the vehicle wouldn't start. Worked like a charm after the replacement, until the fuel gauge sensor failed. Second pump I have put in worked fine until the vehicle started stalling randomly. Kicking the gas tank to start it helped for a while. Checked the ground connection for the pump and it was rusty. Sanded it down with some sand paper, 50000 miles later still working fine.
Driving down the interstate and my vehicle just died . I had to have it towed because it won't crank back up now.
