[DML] Re: Fuel Pump

I am not part of any "cartel" evil or not. It is just my opinion that
if you have trouble with a part as critical as a fuel pump it makes no
sense to not replace it. Especially if you do not know it's history.
It could be 25 years old! And being a very mechanical part it is
subject to wear. When a part gives you a problem and then the problem
seems to go away the problem always comes back at the worst possible
time. As for any of the service vendors, they will always take the
more conservative approach. They will not, in good conscience, tell
you a part that is iffy will last. NO ONE can predict exactly when any
particular part may fail. All you can say is there is not much life
left. Like a cat, you can only know when it's 9th life is gone!!!! To
bottom line this for you, get a new pump and keep the old one as a
questionable spare. While you are replacing the pump take the time to
get the tank and all of the parts inside as clean as you can. The
other approach would be to buy the new pump and keep it in the car so
when the old one dies you can at least get yourself going. IN ALL
cases you NEED to buy a fuel pump.
