Chevy TrailBlazer Fuel Pump Problems
Kept having problem with the fuel gauge, even though the truck was starting fine after that. Wasn't real thrilled with the mechanic, so went to a new one in Dec 2008, who ended up replacing the fuel pump again because it needed a new fuel gauge bobber-thing and the first mechanic had only gotten a regular fuel pump, he hadn't included that bobber piece. So a 2nd fuel pump took care everything. $1000 on two fuel pumps in the span of 3 months.
Now for the past few weeks it is back to not starting again. When it has sat for several hours it starts right up good and strong. But if I'm running errands or something where I'm in and out of it, it takes several tries to get the engine to catch.
I went to a chain tire place yesterday for new brakes and tires and when I came and picked it back up the manager said the fuel pump needed replaced.
Why would a fuel pump need to be replaced again after just a year? Is there an underlying issue that could cause the truck to tear up the fuel pump? I do not have another $500.
