My father has a small mid-90s Isuzu pickup (I don’t remember the exact year and model). At some point, he let the gas tank get to empty, and the truck wouldn’t start. Upon taking it to a garage, he was told that he could not let that particular year and model get empty, because “something” happened to the fuel pump which required it be replaced (at a cost of $800).
Google searches have not been too helpful in tracking down anything, though MSN Carpoint lists fuel pump failure as a potential problem on 1998 Isuzu Hombre’s.
But, this sounds like pure bunk to me…is there a problem with a particular mid-90’s model of Isuzu truck where the fuel pump is screwed if the gas tank is empty? If so, how? Thanks,
