Went to a fuel injection clinic a while back, question on electric pump replacement and pumps not lasting, dirt in tank was primary reason. Electric turbine pumps will not stand dirt for very long. Most dirt in tank stems from the way we transport and store fuel in this country, and the fact that it is impossible to have an high micron filter on the suction side of the electric pump without affecting the pump delivery output. If it is indeed the pump that's bad again. Tank replacement was the fix, although I would try to clean the tank.Most shops would find themselves in trouble with feds or state agencies if they cleaned many tanks was the reason given for tank replacement. Some radiator shops can and will cook and clean tanks in there hot tank.
