You need to start chasing wires. You have a short somewhere.

Talked to a mechanic and he said it was my fuel pump. It was confusing what he said. But something about its having a hard time pumping which creates more current that is blowing my fuse. Ill check wires while my tanks down too. And ill check my ground just incase

Wires were the first thing came to my mind too. But he swore it was my fuel pump. He was probably just trying to get my money.

Check continuity on all the wires to ground just for *****s. If the pump is working to hard, maybe you have a linked line or something interfering with flow? Also could be picking up debriso in the tank?

Re: Replacing My Fuel Pump....Again....

change the fuel filter if you havent already since you've been having issues.
possibly fuel filter is clogged or defective causing excessive pre-regulator pressure?
