      When the fuel pump went in my friends 2nd gen, it was one and done overnight like you describe. Try some troubleshooting like Brooklyn suggested though before jumping to conclusions. Could be another issue on the newer vehicles before looking for spark/fuel/air delivery problems.

      Is it a 4.0 or 4.6? The ignition systems are a little different, the 4.6 is coil-on-plug with no plug wires whereas the 4.0 is the old style.
