2000 Chevrolet Impala 3.8L LS fuel pump problem

I have a 2000 Chevrolet Impala 3.8L LS. In January the car quit on me while I was driving it. Looking in the top fuse box under the hood I found that the 15A fuel pump fuse had popped. I replaced the fuse and the car ran for about another month until it happened again. This time I would replace the fuse and it would just keep on popping. I towed it to a service shop and had it looked at. They told me my fuel pump was shot and replaced it with an ACDelco fuel pump. The car ran fine for about three months until the same exact problem started to happen again. I took the car to an ACDelco authorized repair center to have it looked at. Sure enough the fuel pump was bad again. I told them that this had happened before and asked them if it could be anything else. They ensured me that it was a bad fuel pump and replaced it under the warranty. Now it is two months later and the same thing is happening again. There is something that has to be ruining these fuel pumps. Do you have any idea what could be causing this problem?

Check your fuel filter. If it is plugged replace it. A plugged fuel filter can cause a fuel pump to have to work too hard & cause it to burn out prematurely

2000 Chevrolet Impala LS 3.8L keeps dying while driving, no codes or warnings. It's been happening for years but seems worse now. Ignition module already replaced. Fuel pump hums when I turn ke


many possible causes. sounds all too much like a crank sensor failing. when it dies, does it act like you shut key off, (instant stall)? or does it sputter and cough, then stall out? seen this same situation and problem many times in my shop and a cranksensor fail can be hard to catch when it fails. most likely cause.

How to replace electric fuel pump in 2002 impala ls


Hello!
You put down the back seat and lift open the trunk lid for fresh air. Raise the carpet off the inside of the trunk close to the back seat. You should see a trap door. Lift it and there is your fuel tank and pump!!!

Where is the pressure release valve on the fuel line for a 2000 impala? I need to change the fuel filter and was told to release the pressure first but can't find the valve


STANDING ON THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE CAR LOOKING AT THE ENGINE, THE VALVE IS TO THE LEFT OF THE POWER STEERING PUMP.

LOOSENING THE JAMB NUT ON ONE END OF THE FUEL FILTER SLOWLY AND PUTTING A RAG OVER THE FILTER WILL WORK TO.

make sure to check for and aftermarket ignition module installation in other words make sure the ignition module is factory and not aftermarket,
this is not a fuel problem because fuel problem acts diferent
but coul be your ignition module or your crank sensor
