    I replaced the fuel pump in my 2007 (2.5 gas) about 10,000 miles ago. I did go with an aftermarket version. After several dealership visits and several $$$ to get pressure/filter straight it finally seemed to get sorted. Has been running just fine but the last few weeks I'm starting to get the...
