RE: [DML] Re: Fuel pump gets hot...

Thanks David.  The pump is new and all of that was done a year ago,  but
its possible I didn't get everything out of the tank or kinked a hose.

Taking the car down to Don Stenger in a few days,  I'll let them pop it
open and take a look.

Your fuel pump is dying. It's death was hastened by either a kinked
suction hose, dirty strainer, or a hole in the suction hose allowing air
to get in (any or all of the above). The thing to do now would be to
remove the pump, inspect all the internal parts in the tank, replace any
in deteriorated or questionable condition, and replace the fuel pump.
While you are in there you should drain the tank and wipe it out to
remove any trace of water or dirt.
