Dear BlazerFroum Members,
I put a couple of ounces of the fuel-tank treatment labeled "Lucas Upper Cylinder Lubricant" and coincidently (Or not) I had no noise in my pump the next day and no starts. There was just over a quarter tank of fuel when I added the Lucas.
The mechanic who works nextdoor to my company was able to jumpstart me by hammering the Fuel Tank as I turned the engine over, But the fuel pump died the next day after I left the vehicle sitting for that extended time period.
The mechanic once again made the pump work by hitting the tank, this time I thought maybe the lucas had clogged it, so I filled the tank full of fuel. (The pump is less than 2 years old on my 1998 Jimmy!) This time that the pump was jump started, the Relay was clicking continuously, so I shut the truck off. Eventually I went to try to drive it again because I had school and there was no clicking and I have been driving it the past two days.

What are the chances the lucas clogged the pump VS the pump failing by chance? What are the chances I won't have to replace this assembly/pump (Do they come back from the dead?) and if I do have to replace, which pump is best? I was on EBAY and for ~20$ you can buy a GMC Jimmy Fuel Pump Repair kit that consists of a pump and some hoses and seals and stuff. Do these work? I really would like to avoid spending so much on yet another pump assembly. PS: Usually always have my fuel above the half way mark...
