At 136k miles today my lift pump failed about 90 miles away from home, while working. I was on a major highway, CEL, bam dead. Pulled over, gave it a second.... was a bit concerned my motor blew! But I turned it over and it sounded healthy. It finally started again and drove for about another mile, and dead again. Had a co-worker pick me up as I figured it may have been a bad fuel filter. Changed the filter, got drenched in diesel, still no dice. Limped it a couples miles at a time to the nearest dealer. $1300ish bill. Guess it could've been worse but I hadn't heard of these failing although I'm sure I'm not the first.
