I have a 2002 S-10. 68,000 miles and I need a fuel pump. I have been hearing
now that this is common. What is the problem with them? My 2000 S-10 had
automatic transmission problems that now I hear are endemic with them
(clutch going in and out like shuddering, then the smash-bang shift from 1st
to 2nd until you shut it down and restarted it).
Anyone else experience these problems? Are there any recalls in the future?
Any hidden recalls now?
The two different mechanics told me that the fuse for the fuel pump and
sending unit blew. They replaced it and the engine ran for about a minute
and the fuse blew again. They said that the fuel pump was pulling too many
amps. One of them told me that it must be a short, but a short would cause a
fire, wouldn't it?
Anyhow, $900.00 is the bill including towing and diagnostics from two
different repair places.
