RE: [DML] Fuel pump Buzz/Hum and engine cutting out briefly

It sounds to me like the filter screen in the tank is getting clogged.  


You can disconnect the fuel feed line from the fuel distributor and put
it into a gas can, then bypass the RPM relay and run the pump to empty
the tank, do not run the pump once it starts to sputter air, it will
overheat quickly.


Then remove the cover under the spare, pull out your pump assembly and
clean out the tank, no fun, but easily do-able.

Subject: [DML] Fuel pump Buzz/Hum and engine cutting out briefly


So, driving back from DCS on Sunday, my car lost power on the highway
quick times, then the engine kicked back in (almost like inertia switch
in/out 2-3 times real quick)

I traveled another 45 minutes, and it happened one more time about 10
from home. I made it home, and noticed that my fuel pump was
"Whining/buzzing/humming" quite a bit. I have never heard this before.

Is this the overheating problem? Do I need a new fuel pump? What kind of
lifespan should I expect?
Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
