What do you mean the fuel pump runs longer than usual. It will run for 30 seconds or so then stop if you dont start the engine. This is timed through the PCM I believe.

As noted from prior incidents if your fuel pump starts to loose pressure it cycles longer to reach pressure and sounds tired ,running under these conditions will cause injector fuel starvation .I've replaced the HFCM before with oem part this time I'm just replacing the pump.itself with an airtex at almost half the cost anyone used this method

You're being ridiculously vague. Bit if you "think" it's cause it's not reaching pressure, check the actual psi. Or throw parts and labor. Drop tank, check pickup tube/screen. New fpr. Change filters.

My Samsung SGH-I997 made me send this.

Agreed. Until you get a gauge on it, its gonna be all guessing. you may have to install a vacuum gauge on the fuel pump pick up line if you dont want to go through dropping the tank. Plastic or metal tank? metal tank had delamintion problems and it may have clogged the pick up.
