Autozone supplied a part that failed multiple times. I purchased an Airtex fuel pump from Autozone which quickly went bad and was told by that the problem could be fixed only by getting a new part.
It was stated that the old fuel pump randomly failed due to unknown reasons. I purchased the new part which again failed due to the exact same problem. The internal fuel pump rubber hose connecting the assembly and pump is not designed for fuels which contain ethanol or other legally mandated additives. Autozone is selling very old stock which can not work with modern gasoline.
After the second failure I brought back the fuel pump and showed the store manager how the internal rubber fuel line had "Melted" causing catastrophic failure.
He said that he had seen this problem before. Do an internet search for" bad fuel pumps Autozone".
