Russell did a fine job on what I would call a difficult project. To replace the fuel pump on this van it was necessary to drain & drop the fuel tank. It took a lot of time for him to complete the task but he stayed with it until completion with great results. Although the replacement fuel pump is louder than the original it does its job well & as long as I can hear it I know it's working. Thanks for sending Russell. He is a tremendous help.

Before replacing the pump, first be sure that filters, fuel pickups, fuel pump relays, and electrical connectors are in good working order. A clogged fuel filter, for instance, can restrict flow and cause some of the same symptoms.
Your engine needs gas to run. The gas, however, is stored in the gas tank, not in the engine. When the engine needs more fuel, the fuel pump is responsible for pumping the gas from the tank to the engine, where it is used to power the vehicle. As the fuel pump deteriorates, it will be less and less efficient at pumping gas to the engine, and your vehicle will have a harder time running. When the fuel pump completely dies, it will be unable to pump gas to your engine, and your car won’t run.
