what could make my 98 s-10 go through 5 fuel pumps in 3 years

  1. A few things could cause this:
    1) Cheap poor manufactured part
    2) Bad/faulty wiring causing excessive resistance and burning up put
    3)MOST COMMON – Driving the car around on “E” most of the time.

    The fuel pump is cooled by the surrounding fuel in the tank and if the tank is less than 1/4 full then the fuel pump is not being properly cooled.

    4) Restrictions in the fuel rail return line will cause the pump to have to work harder than normal and will burn it up.
