One day after replacing my two week old starter, my fuel pump went. I know new aftermarket fuel pumps are known for their longevity Rolling Eyes; this one lasted all of four miles. At least I hope that's what's happened.

The engine turned over several times before starting, unlike before when it fired right up. It sounded noisy. I filled up the tank, seemed OK at low speeds, then as soon as I hit 60 it felt sluggish. I turned around and headed straight back home. Two blocks to go, uphill, the CEL came on, it stumbled, then died and wouldn't restart. The CEL came on once for about two minutes a few weeks ago then went off; otherwise it's never been on in the 16 months I've had the car.

It's going back to the shop tomorrow, but I thought I'd ask anyway: does it sound like a bad fuel pump? Is there something else to look for that eats fuel pumps?

Obviously check for pressure first. Did you replace the piece of hose that goes from the pump to the top of the sending unit? Those are known to split, especially after being disturbed.

Airtex pump went in the caddy after 5k miles. Put in another and it's still going many miles later.

In that case I really hope it doesn't go again, there isn't enough room in there for you to swap it.
