Spent 4-1/2 hours to drop gas tank "twice" and was charged "twice" for labor. First pump was defective and would NOT pump. [...] Dropped gas tank again and replaced with another pump and cost labor "again" to drop gas tank and replace with another pump. 2nd pump still working but I am nervous thinking when it might quit working.

Comments about CARQUEST Electric Fuel Pump:

Bought a truck with fuel issues, diagnosed it as the fuel pump and changed it out with one of these thinking it would get me down the road for a while - and it did. For exactly 567 miles over 1.5 months. Then it promptly left me stranded on the upper ramp of I10 when it suddenly died. To be fair, I wasn't expecting this pump to make it for a full year and was going to change it at some point, but 567 miles? Entirely unacceptable. Didn't even give the usual courtesy of a slow failure/long starts to let me know, instead it just popped and it was done.

Fuel pump was still getting +12v but NO fuel pressure. This is completely unacceptable for a company that claims to be "Developing exceptional quality that meets or exceeds OE design specifications and ISO standards."

Do yourself a favor and get a brand that will last more than a couple gas tanks worth of driving, stay FAR AWAY from Airtex, and Driveworks for that matter - dropping fuel tanks every other month is not something you want to start doing unless you're getting paid to do it. Spend the extra $10-$30 and get something reputable like

            About Me Mechanic

            Comments about CARQUEST Electric Fuel Pump:

            Purchased and installed an Airtex (Model: 3621S) pump and sending unit assembly in mid-December, 2013. Verified the pump's operation immediately after installation. The Truck is only used to tow a boat and was not started until March, 2014, three months later. When I attempted to start my 1993, C1500 it would not start. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE CAUSE...NO FUEL!!!!! The truck has not been started since mid-December, now when I needed it, it would not start.

            Again, pulled the bed from the vehicle, removed the pump and found all the rubber-compound material dissolved. Before I purchased the Airtex pump I specifically asked if the rubber components were compatible with today's fuels...I was told they were. The reason I asked was because I read several accounts where the material decomposed, and wanted to be assured this has been corrected. Apparently NOT!!!

            Additional thought: The assembly's tubing has rubber-compound "O" rings that seal the connection between the Airtex tubing/fittings to the vehicle's fuel lines; these "O" rings are also damaged. Remember, I only started the truck once...not much fuel in contact with these rings. The rings are the seal, the threaded fitting only provide ring compression to seal the fuel lines. If the "O" rings fail, in my mind, a potential fuel leak is possible. Hot exhaust and gasoline---not a good combination!!! Does the Columbia Space Shuttle ring a bell?

            Rated one star because I could not rate it lower.

            • Q:

              I have a 1992 Chevy Cheyenne PU w/ a 4.3L engine & manual 5-speed trans. How much voltage should be at the pumps electrical connection on top of the tank ?

              I replaced the electric fuel pump & relay 4 months ago and rarely drive the truck. 2 days ago it would not start - the fuel pump not kicking on. Have 8.99 volts at the sending units electrical connection on top of the fuel tank. Are these pumps made by Drive Works or what ?

                A:

                I'm happy to help, Steve! This CARQUEST or Airtex Electric Fuel Pump (Part No. E3902) will run most effectively within .5 volts of 12 volts. According to Airtex, the pump should still turn on and off below 12 volts. Flow rate and pressure will definitely be affected by low voltage. High resistance could come from having a good voltage at the relay and a bad connection at the pump.

                This fuel pump is not manufactured by Driveworks. Driveworks is a brand that is exclusive to Advance Auto Parts. Airtex is a national brand and are the manufacturers of the fuel pump. Airtex provides some additional details about how to diagnose voltage drop here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuP0ZEHfDJ4&feature=youtu.be and no start/bad or faulty fuel pump here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY6z_swfLVs&feature=youtu.be.

                When replacing the fuel pump, you are also required to replace the strainer with CARQUEST or Airtex Fuel Strainer (Part No. FS22 [w/o high temp sending unit] or FS3 [w/ high temp sending unit]) to retain your warranty.

                A:

                The Airtex electric fuel pump, part number E3902 has increased flow over original design. A strainer is required to validate the pump warranty. Airtex electric pumps feature brush and terminal assembly, which prolong the life of the fuel pump. The ball check valve ensures fuel is delivered under a consistent pressure level. The inlet is specially molded to reduce friction. A screen filters out fuel contaminants.
