    Shoddy electrical connection

    By

    Comments about CARQUEST Fuel Pump Module Assembly:

    Fuel pump went out on 2000 GMC Sierra 2500. I purchased what Advance Auto had in stock, this E3501M on 01-11-15. Installed and it worked fine for 3 days. Then same problem...crank, no start. Take the bed off, diagnostics to find the problem. Voltage and ground were good to the plug. Plugged it back in and it worked again until 02-21-15. Same problem...crank, no start. Remove truck bed again to find that AGAIN the plug-in electrical connector was the problem. Researching this part on the internet, I find that there are lots of other people out there that have this same problem with the electrical. That's a lot of wasted labor in 6 weeks. Thankfully, I haven't had a towing bill...YET. I'm no ace mechanic, but I can plug in a connector and pull the locking tab. Dielectric grease was used. I'm calling to see if I can get this purchase credited to an AC Delco fuel pump.

            Unit comes very protected in box.almost like O.E.M.quality and very reliable.I have used Airtex brand on all my cars and trucks over the years with no problems to date.They should give you new clips for fuel connection lines at the top.using old ones could be problem later because they get brittle,so pick up some or order them with the pump assembly.Might check with their help chat guys to see if your clips are available there.they are a great people to help you with any problems or question you may have!

              It is not an exact fit because the plugs have to be changed if this is the first one you install in the truck. Heads up ppl, they only last about 100,000 miles, uggg. About to purchase the 2nd one; wish we had got the Bosch because it has a lifetime warranty instead of a 1 yr. warranty. But, as they give you NO warning of going out, we will have to purchase the cheaper one because we are going out of town just like the last time it went out, grrrr

              So Far, So Good

                  Comments about CARQUEST Fuel Pump Module Assembly:

                  I purchased the Airtex fuel pump assembly to replace the AC Delco original equipment that gave up after 155K miles on my 1500 Sierra. The repair shop quoted $860.00 to replace the unit so I did it myself for the cost of the pump, saved $600.00. The only thing I didn't like was having to replace a perfectly good electrical connector. Airtex has there own special connector, big deal.

                  This is a 5 to 7 hour project so if you are going to tackle is job here are a few things you will need to know that were not mention in the Haynes repair manual.

                  1. Verify that you local auto part store as both models in stock because you will need to drop the fuel tank to see the three-letter code on top of the fuel pump assembly before ordering it.

                  2. The fuel lines are connected to the fuel tank and vapor can with plastic clip type connectors. Use your fingers to remove the clips or you may be buying new ones (no tools need).

                  3. Do not discard the old fuel pump you will need the fuel line clips from the old connections. Also they are different sizes so double check before re-installing on the new fuel pump connections.

                  4. If you are working on the GMC Sierra 1500 is will be easier to remove the three small screws from the fill port and remove the whole fill port hose assembly in one piece. Don't forget to disconnect the grounding wire.

                  5. Verify that the fuel tank strap bolts are not rust on. If so use Rust Buster to free them. Do not try to wrench them off you will not like the out come.

                  6. Because this is an electric fuel pump you should always treat the fuel lines like they are under pressure.

                  This is not a very hard job but I would recommend buying a Hayes repair manual or a book like it for this job.
                  My new pump has been in for the last 1000 miles and running strong.

                    Cutting off the existing connector and splicing in a different style connector was easy enough, luckily I had the tooling needed to do the job. The butt splices were just about worthless though. Must have been the cheapest available. The other connector that goes on top of the pump was another matter, there was no hole to install the sensor (or whatever it is)nor were there instructions on what to do about it. The picture shows the sensor installed. I plugged it in and just tied it to the other wiring. The truck seems to run OK but what am I missing?

                    I purchased a Airtex - Electric Fuel Pump Assembly Part # E3500M at advance auto parts. Sad to say it only lasted a year and one week . Can not believe would not do a warranty exchange on it at advance parts. My original OEM fuel pump lasted 7 yrs and the airtex pump last only a year at a cost of [$]. Airtex claims they have 75 yrs exp. Your products dont show it compared to [...] products which last a lot longer for about the same price. The product quality and performance not up to its durability in an airtex fuel pump. P.S. BUY AC DELCO SAVE THE HEADACES

                        The only thing I can think of for finding this out would either be consulting a repair manual for your vehicle or contacting your local manufacturer dealership and speaking with a technician there.

                        You can reach the top of the tank and feel the single four wire connector and the three tubes. The other way is to use a mirror.
