I don't think it's a part of any regular scheduled maintenance changes, but an intriguing question. I think their average lifetime could be in years as well as mileage. On average I would guess we are increasing miles driven per year. I can tell you the main thing that shortens pump life is overheating from chronically low gas tank levels. In tank pumps require being surrounded by gasoline for cooling purposes. The guy who often runs out of gas, and cranks and cranks the car over, is killing his fuel pump in short order. I would hazard a guess that normal pump life is maybe around 150,000 miles? But I am sure there will be some in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mode. I myself adhere to that pretty often, lol.

My car won't start I have changed the coil fuel pump fuel pump relay and the Mfi relay I now think its the crank shaft relay but I do not know help me !


Sounds like maybe the main computer is bad. When you cranked the engine there is not any indication that it is firing. If you have changed the fuel pump and coil and it still wont even fire, the computer is most likely the cause. Even if the timming was off you would still get some indication that it was trying to start although it probably would not if the timming was off, but the fact it's not even trying to fire yeah that's my take.

My 2001 Chevy Malibu won't start.. in September if


sometimes the new fuel pump goes bad, it does happen, if you disconnect the fuel line @ engine and hold it in a can or bottle, have an assistant crank engine, but do not start it, if you have gas coming out, your pump is working, careful , it will come out fast !!!!!!!!!!!! have a rag ready. now you can move on to find the real problem.

Fuel pump continues to try to function when truck key is off.while key is off if i switch to opposite tank that pump starts to function even w/key off


fuel pump is going bad. or your pressure return is stuck. or your relay to the fuel pump is sticking .plugged fuel filter. bad ground to the pump. that is all i can think of besides a faulty key switch.but most likely its a pressure issue fuel injection needs a certain amount of pressure to fire the injector so when you change tanks the pump has a pressure change so the pump starts to keep up pressure. hope it helps

Why won't my new fuel pump in my 2002 kia sedona pump even though it's getting juice from the battery


Have you checked the injector rail with a gauge to know for sure the injectors are not getting fuel ?
If the pump is running but not pumping fuel I would think it is a clogged filter or screen in the tank.

My toyota celica .... everytime i start it up it stalls sometimes i can get it in reverse and then drive and it seems like it is gong to stall again but doesnt or i will make it down the road and it will...


It certainly sounds like a fuel delivery problem. You didn't say if you changed the in line filter. If it is partially plugged, it won't allow enough gas to reach the engine. After or before changing that, you would want a fuel pressure test, to see if the proper fuel pressure was available at the injectors for them to work. Proper fuel pressure is dependent not only on the pump, but also on the fuel pressure regulator-which would be checked when a pressure test is done.
