My Fuel Pump went out at 125,000 miles. Make sure you replace it with a "Good-Name Brand" Fuel Pump. Not a "Generic Brand". Pay the Extra Money. Trust Me. !!! A lot of work to Replace. (In the Gas Tank).
My GMC Savana 1500 JUST TURNED "Literally" 125,000 miles, when One minute it ran like a new van, to, Cranking only-No Start. I had it towed into my Honest mechanic and he said I needed a Fuel Pump. I also had that thought because my son and his wife had Chevy Silverado's and Blazer (same engine) that did the same, TWICE EACH.!!! So I got a "Delphi Fuel Pump" so I would not have to pay Big Bucks to fix this again a 2nd time...Like they did. It cost a little more, But I am sure it is worth it for a good quality Fuel Pump. Trust Me I've seen it...Spend the extra money and get a Great Quality "DELPHI Fuel Pump".
when you give it gas it tends to stall out sometimes by pumping the gas you can get it to go again I've almost been blindsided once or twice
