    Hi I have a 1996 Toyota Tacoma 2.7 4x4 since January I have replaced the fuel pump 3 times and now going on my 4th and replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump relay.The last pump was a Bosch.should I have the gas tank boiled and cleaned and put a whole new fuel pump assembly and pump in again.

    Not sure of your situation-but-have you checked the RETURN LINES?
    my son had a similar problem in his CAR-the return lines were clogged.-Just a thought!

    Can you visibly see gunk in your filter when you replace?

    Multi-point tow hooks, new bored 2.7L engine, custom paint. 3 inch adjustable Fabtech front coils, 2.5 inch rear AAL. Front Aussie locker. LED bed lights. Full LED conversion interior and exterior. Relentless Fabrication front and rear bumpers. 4X4innovation sliders. BAMF bed rack. CVT rooftop tent.
    The question is of course what has caused the multiple failures. I would want to see how the most recent pump looked when it was removed. May be time for a new tank. I wouldn't waste my time cleaning it. Once the internal protective coating is damaged, it will just continue to rust.
