Please help with my fuel pump problem!
Hi guys, site looks great!
This is my first post here and I DID do a search first but could'nt really find anything so I hope this is in the right spot.
About 2 months ago my old fuel pump went out so I bought a new pump (not the whole assembly) at AutoZone. Changed it out and all seemed well except that when I got to a 1/4 tank of gas or less the truck would stall when going down hills or stopping to quickly from like 50-60mph. This leads me to believe that it's related to the pump as the problem WAS NOT there before and it DOES NOT happen when I'm near 1/2 tank or above. It's like when the tank gets lower, the fuel pump cannot retrieve the gas correctly you know? I thought I would change my fuel filter that's located on the framerail since that had'nt been done in a while and no luck there either.
During the initial pump change the old pump had factory clamps around a rubber line that connected the pump to the hard line. I had to cut those clamps and use hose clamps that came with the new pump. I noticed that the original rubber hose was slightly curved and the new one was not. This was'nt allowing the pump to seat properly, so I may have slightly bent the assembly part where the pump seats into. Are these pumps that touchy?
Anyone have any ideas? At this point I'm willing to re-remove the whole assembly and post up pics here so that someone may be able to help me. PLEASE!?
