[DML] Re: Crap in fuel pump + normal pump sound?

Your trouble with the decomposed filter screen is common for well 
aged systems that have set in decomposed fuel. Replacing ALL the 
affected components is important for getting the system back to a 
trouble free operation. Sometimes the fuel distributor and injectors 
can be salvaged because the decomposed fuel dried up much sooner 
than the stuff in the fuel tank or components such as the filter and 
accumulator that had larger quantities of fuel trapped in them.

If you have ingested trash through the pump, and it sounds like you 
have, you should replace it. The damage may just leave you stranded 
somewhere down the road. Since some of the trash may have passed on 
downstream I would replace all components, except the lines, from 
the tank filter through the fuel filter - that would include the 
accumulator. I would also recommend a thorough cleaning of the fuel 
lines - like blowing out with air - before replacement of your fuel 
system pieces.

Run some Marvel Mystery Oil through the system for a few tanks to 
finish cleaning out the system. I use it virtually all the time 
since it also acts as a light stabilizer for the fuel.
