WTF??? Fuel pump dead again! UPDATE!
Arrgh! On my '94 Grand Cherokee, I had some fuel pump problems about three weeks ago. Dropped the tank, replaced the pump - problem solved, right? NOT! Did some light wheeling last night and this afternoon, and on the way home (about a half mile off the trail luckilly) the pump quits again. Banged the hell out of the tank trying to coax it to run again, no luck. Finally called AAA, they dropped it off at my house.
I don't know if I wound up with a defective replacement pump or what - since I had put it in, starting was extra effort. If I cycled the key twice to let the pump build pressure, it started right away. Could that be an indicator of a faulty pump? Thank god for lifetime warranties, the replacement set me back over $200.
Anyways, I'll be replacing it again tomorrow night. Things are in my favor - last time the tank was full (23 gals.). This time I have less than 1/4 tank, so it's bound to be easier to take down. I hate getting gas baths! I've got a lift in my garage at home, so the job is not so bad for one person.
