Oh and the wiring harness that connects to the pump has been replaced twice as I was told that was a common problem. Now to reply to J Cat, Like i mention above the filters have all been change or atleast I was billed for them as I was not the one replacing them. We back them with a 1 year warranty! Buy now and replace that failed original part! We rarely have issues with our pumps, and you will not find a guarantee like this from other fuel pump manufacturers such as Walbro. Is this something a auto parts store could check and see if the pump itself is shot? So in conclusion your failure to change the filter caused a pump burn up, and believe me those filters do not last as long as you think. I feel that this situation of an electrical wire running into the gas tank to a component part that has frequently shorted out presents a real danger. A new fuel pump replacement for Chevy K2500 is just what you need to alleviate both concerns.
The truck runs great now that I have replaced the pump. Changed fuel pump and fuel filter, not starting when turning ignition. When they do it is real obvious. Sure your meter is accurate? Is this something a auto parts store could check and see if the pump itself is shot? No way can your engine start or run with a 10 lb. For fuel pressure problems, it's best to seek the assistance of a Chevrolet dealer or a certified mechanic. This pump will fit every model, engine, type or style for every vehicle listed and can flow anywhere from 15-115 psi, which is determined by your fuel pressure regulator, usually about 235 liters per hour at 12v and 43psi.
If the testing was done with the pump running and a fully-charged battery, it seems that the pump is starving for proper electrical supply. This port is situated underneath the lower leading edge of the dashboard, approximately 6-inches to the right of the steering column centerline. Open the fuel door and loosen the fuel cap to vent the tank. It's a 4 wire connector but on gas engines it only has 2 wires in it. I thought maybe a voltage problem since it stated with the old pump some times and others i would have to cycle the key. How can I test to make sure the fuel pump is shot rather than the connectors at the pump above the tank? I see this mentioned frequently, and I do not understand it.
Remove the filler hoses, disconnect the power leads and the fuel lines and the tank is free. It is in the back-right corner of the engine compartment, to the right of the brake fluid reservoir. For fuel pressure problems, it's best to seek the assistance of a Chevrolet dealer or a certified mechanic. Plugged fuel filter, or restricted plumbing creates excess pressure; prematurely wears out pump. We back our fuel pumps with a 1 week 100% money back guarantee, less expedited shipping, and a 1 year free replacement guarantee!

We tracked it down to the plug. Thanks in advance for any help. . Trucks with either the 5. Less than that causes the pump to loose cooling from the fuel.
Electrical supply to the pump is defective. I don't have any electrical equip for checking things and am not really very good at working on cars but am broke and need to fix it myself. Any ideas on a logical sequence of steps I might try. If you can't drive more than 20mph without the vehicle bogging out or sounding like it has a rev-limiter then the fuel filter or fuel pump is bad! Does it help you any if I say this will be my third pump if I change it. Sucking air would not cause low voltage; although it could reduce amperage draw and fuel pressure. Drop the tank and the rest is easy. I don't know how the 3 dealerships I payed good money to missed it.
You say you don't have any electrical tools. Dealer was called about the problem. The local dealership required several hours of trouble shooting and company consultation to learn that the tank module was the problem as this is a frequent problem, so they replaced it with an improved version, but since my pickup had 50,000 miles on it I had to pay the full price of the module installation. If you do get a pressure reading but the reading is lower than normal, the cause may be a weak pump, a blockage in the fuel line, filter or tank inlet sock, or a faulty pressure regulator. The pump comes out by twisting a ring. It was complicated and took much longer than it should have, mainly because I didn't know what I was doing. The fuel-pressure specification between the V-6 and the V-8 engines is different.
Getting the Gas out before dropping the tank can proove to be a pain but after that is done the rest is easy. Wiring on pump and fuel gauge had melted and fused together ,shorting out fuel pump and gauge.

We tracked it down to the plug. This would mean the fuse and relay are good and the pump is probably bad. You got fixed, so I guess this post is kinda useless. Ok, I have a 1998 chevy k2500 with the 5. I was going say for others attempting to check line pressure by releasing valve pin.
