Any updates? You ever remedy the problem?
Yes the fuel does cool the fuel pump but letting the tank get low doesn't hurt the fuel pump or make it run any hotter. It's not the fuel in the tank that cools the pump, it's the fuel passing through the pump that cools it. As long as the engine is running, the pump is being cooled no matter how low the fuel level is in the tank. If the gas runs out, the engine stops and so does the fuel pump.Allowing the fuel gauge to go into the red is inviting disaster from a burned out fuel pump. When it gets to 1/4 tank, feed it!
Thank you Sir.Fuel Pump ONLY PRIMES/PUMPS for a 2 second period each time the Ignition is turned to
the ON Position. To reach Pressure the system usually requires 6 seconds. Try an on and off sequence of → ON for two sec, then OFF, Back to ON for Two, Off one more time, THEN On --- Start. Bet that works for ya. I know-- a PAIN in the Hiniey for sure, but it's better than Cranking and Cranking with ALL the un-do wear and Tear on the Starter, not to mention the embarrassing LOOKS from people you get in the Mall Parking Lots.
