1997 Chevy Cheyenne V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
I have a 1997 Chevy C1500 extended cab with a 5.7L V8. Over the past 5 years I have put 10 fuel pumps in it. Some have lasted months, others just a few starts. I have had the wiring checked over several times and there are no shorts. Can you tell me where to go from here? I would like to install an inline external fuel pump, but don't know where to find the appropriate parts. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
These pumps have a know problem with the connectors going to the pump with the contacts springs getting weak and not making a good contact which leads to a voltage drop to the pump. Most of the deals sell a replacement pigtail to resolve the problem.
You also can't use the cheap aftermarket pumps. You need to use only Delco replacement pumps.
