Failing Fuel Pump

Question: Hi - I have an '87 Fiero GT. This will be the 3rd fuel pump within a year that I have had replaced. Last week I took it to get it fixed they replaced fuel pump, sender, relay and computer and today fuel pump is burnt again. Help please.

Answer: Use only AC Delco fuel pumps, and try to keep at least 1/4 tank of fuel onboard. The pump is designed to be submerged for cooling purposes. Constantly running low on fuel can cause pump failure.

Sounds like poor quality aftermarket pumps have been installed.
