has the pump been done recently? my filter clogged up about 6 or 8months after i did the pump on my truck and after i figured out what the heck was going on and put another new one on it, it was good from then on

yeah, i put a new pump in about a year ago. same time as the filter. tank looked clean as a whistle when i put the new pump in.

its been acting up like that off and on for a few months now. but the last couple weeks it was constant and predictable, not intermittent like when i thought it could be the crank sensor.


i planned on dropping the tank sometime soon and seeing whats in it. especially if it starts acting up again. i drove it for 10 minutes last night after the filter change without an issue, then this morning on the way to work it had just a little hiccup. but nothing near what it was. its 100 times better. it would die everytime i put it in park or came to a stoplight, pretty much had to have my foot in the throttle just a hair.

will a pump going bad make the gas turn black or like a charcoal color?

No, but gas getting into your charcoal canister and recirculating back into the tank will make it look black.

Ok, I've dropped and stirred up old gas tanks before and seen the crud result too, but I think he'* getting a lot of charcoal if his fuel is black.
