Fuel pump issues...

Looks like I'm about to have to purchase my 3rd fuel pump...in as many months! Has anyone else dealt with or had issues with the Pro-Line fuel pumps? As many times as I've had to replace the fuel pump, I'm thinking it may be worth relocating the rear cross brace and make a hatch in the floor for easier access...this is getting old!

Assuming a V8 and it's the pump failing, you should be able to find a Delco pump unit to replace the pump with.

If it is the actual pump part, you remove the cartridge and replace it with an $80 generic from NAPA.

It is a V8. I am getting power to the plug...but the pump does not kick on. Is the Delco pump a direct replacement or is there a PN that I need?...sorry, the search feature is not working on my phone if it's already been covered... Same question for the cartridge... and can you tell me how I can determine if it is the actual pump part?

Is an inline fuel pump a ridiculous solution?...again sorry if it's been covered already...not able to access a computer right now to utilize the search....

i have use many pro line pumps and never had a issue,I would have to think you have something wrong with the harness more than likely a bad ground .. i would look into the fuel pump circuit before throwing more pumps at it ....

Would I be able to test that by hooking up 12 volts directly to the fuel pump plug, with a solid ground? Is it ok to bypass the fuses and relays to see if the pump kicks on?

Yes but if the pump might have failed .due to the poor ground or erratic 12v feed....the 2 grounds from the pump are joined in the harness which is then grounded to the passanger side of the t box ...you can cut those wires back from the connector and run a new ground lug also have to make sure your getting a clean 12v from the fuel pump relay and do a wiggle test to the harness i could almost bet theres some corrosion causing these problems....always start with basics when diag ...power / ground ...hope this helps a bit
