How many miles?

Last tune-up, fuel filter, etc

Sounds like a clogged fuel filter

I have done 2 or 3 of these in the last few months and they were all fuel pump problems. The filter is in the tank on this and it gets clogged and burns up the pump.

You might bear in mind, the in tank fuel pumps rely on gasoline to keep it cool, dont run your gas tank less than 1/4 all the time. More than likely this low fuel problem has been the demise of many fuel pumps. I dont know if this is just an un written rule or not, but it is true.
