    CVPI - Fuel Pump Problems

    We've been replacing fuel pumps by the case around here this year, anyone else?

    We also have been replacing all the fuel pumps. I don't think Ford has issued a recall on the part yet, but it will more than likely be coming.

    The 2003's seem to have a problem, nothing with the 2005's yet.

    My question is, when will Ford design a license plate light that lasts longer than 6 months?

    I noticed that too. I don't think any of ours actually work.

    They overheat if the tank is allowed to drop below a 1/4 and idling simply burns them up. Ford won't recall since police cars are just about the only ones with the problem. Normal use pump will last 100K or better.

    While that makes sense, it doesn't apply with us as our cars rarely drop below 1/2 a tank. They're filled every shift.

    I heard it was the fuel also.

    If it was the fuel no cars would be running that have in tank pumps.
