How could the pump failure contaminate the injectors when the fuel filter will catch all debris. Sounds like someone is trying to take you for a ride! Shop around for a honest repair shop,there out there! Have the fuel pump and fuel filter changed and you should be fine.I hate when shops try taking advantage of customers.
Good Luck hope things work out.

How long should fuel injectors last?

there is no "life " for injectors because of the variables that are involved in their use.Poor quality filters ( one with a high micron value) will let abrasive ( grit) through and wear /block the tips. This is found in all fuels. Fuels that are high in tar content will produce gum that restricts the operation of the injector ( fuel manufacturer and quality) contaminated fuels ( water , fuels cross contaminated by the delivery vehicle because the tanks were not properly cleaned out before refilling with a different product. Electronic power surges and shorts , water in connections . All of these things will reduce the operational life of an injector . The quality of the injector itself . Although a costly injector is no guarantee to long life, it will probably be better than an el-cheapo unit.

My check engine light is on the code catalytic efficiency 420 port 2 how do i find

the cat convertor is contaminated with fuel. If the light will not go off (its always on) you have two choices: 1. install new cat(s) or Run premium fuel until light goes out. However before doing either you must first ensure the car's: air filter is new, the spark plugs are new and you put fuel injector cleaner in every tank of fuel. and you might want to replace the O2 sensor in the exhaust pipe. (fuel injectors foul up and cause spilling of fuel instead of spraying atomized fuel and if the spark plugs are fouled they ill not do complete burn of the fuel and therefore cause fuel to get into the cat converter. The O2 sensor can also cause the computer to adjust the timing to fire the plugs and cause similar issues)

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.

i have tried a search and i cannot find where the 02 sedona offered a diesel option motor, i found only one available motor and that was a 3.5 sfi , well that pump is in the tank. Did you try and put diesel fuel in this vehicle? as it wont run on diesel.and its possible it fried the pump. but you will have to drain tank and flush fuel lines if this is the case.
