Most likely it was a faulty pump, these usually last for years. If it was installed correctly and gently, then it was the pump wasn't good to start with. I don't know who or how it was installed, but if it was done correctly and the tank was dropped and the new pump installed gently with out damaging it, then it should not have gone bad. The only thing I can think of is that there might be debris in the tank causing the screen to plug and then the pump to fail. I can't rule out sabatoge either, if somone was to put a foriegn substance in the tank, this too could ruin the pump. Was the filter clean when you changed it, if not you need to check or replace the inline fuel filter under the cab when you change the pump.

I have a 1994 1500 chevy truck i have replaced the fuel pump and the new one went out 6 weeks later what could cause this


1st check all the fuses in the vehicle. Next, check your power to the pump and the ground wire from the pump. I have discovered a lot of issues with the ground wire not making contact. A lot of people state that they checked and have power. You also need a path to ground. Also, check the fuel pump relay. You can take another relay, like from the air conditioning, and plug it into the fuel pump relay spot. This will tell you if the relay is junk.

1999 chevy silverado pick up 4.3 engine turns over good wont start. it was low on gas so i put some in it


If you haven't replaced the fuel pump yet, start saving up. A '99's pump will usually need to be replaced after 8-10 years. Believe it or not, Amazon.com has the best price! Look up the part number at Rockauto.com then search Amazon for it.

You should remove the gas tank and have it cleaned out.Then you should just replace the fuel pump while it is all off and cleaned out.It will save you the trouble of doing it later.Good luck.

Chevy wont start


sounds like seprate issues check for fuel pressure, and spark. the code refers to a poss bad o2 sensor wich would be a seprate issue since o2sensors typically wont keep it from starting, just use alot of gas. good luck
