[DML] Fuel pump gets hot...

I know this has come up before, and that AZ-D probably has the most
experience with hot weather operation - but in this case it seems extreme.

I've just gotten my car running regularly in the last month or so - and on
some days, even in the mid 70's the fuel pump overheats.  It even happens
when the tank is nearly full.  In all occurrence it seems to happen when the
car idles a lot, as opposed to just driving a lot.

First the pump gets loud, then it quits, it takes about 90 minutes before it
runs again.

Is this a sign that I have a kinked pickup line?  Defective pump?  It sure
does seem to be tied to the fans blowing hot air on the tank because it
happens during heavy idling periods...

What experience do any of you have with SpecialTautos Hot air dam?
