JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I have replaced tank, lines , filter housing and elect pump still runs out of fuel.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: every thing except injector pump
JA: Is there anything else the Chevy Mechanic should be aware of about your Chevy?
Customer: i don't think the elect. pump is running all the time is it supposed to? i have changed oil sending unit.
