Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala
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
