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

The filter is supposed to catch "all that stuff". And since the fuel
system is a recirculating system then theoretically all of the dirt in
the tank will eventually be caught by the filter. There are also very
fine screens inside the fuel injectors to catch anything that either
gets past the filter or somehow gets into the system after the filter.
Nothing ever works 100%. The filter screen in the tank is supposed to
keep the "big stuff" from getting caught in the fuel pump. The fuel
tank is a good indicator of the insides of your fuel system. If it is
dirty inside then you can assume that the rest of the fuel system is
also contaminated. I have seen where a running car (not a Delorean)
dies because the owner put some fuel system cleaner in. While it did
clean the system, all the crud that came loose plugged everything up.
The first step in cleaning a contaminated system is to clean the tank.
Much of the dirt and water will settle in the fuel tank. Fresh fuel
has cleaners in it and will slowly clean up a running system.
