Fuel pump in tank gets hot then pickup dies, is power to pump interrupted when pump gets hot?

Asked by Sep 27, 2013 at 07:35 PM about the Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine keeps stopping then will restart after awhile. We removed pickup box to follow
wiring to pump. Noticed that the pump got hot while engine was running then engine quit.
Seems that power to pump is lost while pump cools the engine will start again.

Sounds like you need a new fuel pump, they can run warm if not submerged in fuel as they use the fuel as a coolant.
