What is cost for labor and parts to replace fuel pump in 1997 Chevy suburban 4 wheel drive 1500 series


You're looking at around 1.5 hours or labor, plus parts can range from $70-$250+ depending on what is used (brand etc). Stick with GM parts. This is a job that doesn't require intense labor, so if you're not going to do it yourself, take it to your local auto repair shop, rather than a dealer.

HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST TO HAVE A FUEL PUMP INSTALED


George,
No simple diagram for changing the fuel pump. It is located inside the gas tank. The gas tank needs to be removed to change the pump. The pump is part of an assembly which consists of the pump, fuel gauge sender and pick up. You also need to change the fuel filter when you change the pump. It should take a professional mechanic about 3 hours to drain the fuel out of the tank, remove the tank, change the pump and fuel filter. Multiple the mechanic's time by whatever the repair shop charges per hour for labor. There are several different pump assemblies for the vehicle. Price depends on whether it's 2 or 4 doors and 2 or 4 wheel drive. Best guess is about $600 total.

After filling the tank of the 06 expedition it has recently been slipping immediately to 1/2 or 3/4 full. How can i remedy this and why is it happening? Thanks.


the fuel sending unit is going bad. unfortunatlly it's located on the side of your fuel pump inside of the gas tank. and they do not only sell the sending unit by itself. you'll need to purchase the fuel pump in order to get the sending unit. the fuel tank will also need to be removed to replace the fuel pump as it's inside the gas tank.{most garages price the labor based on how much fuel is inside the gas tank} the gas tank is very heavy when it has alot of gas in it. i suggest that you shop around for prices on fuel pump and the labor to replace it. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Garage says fuel pump needs replaced for $951. Is this a reasonable price? where is fuel pump located and how hard to replace?


rip off, do not go back there.... The fuel pump is most likely inside of the fuel tank and then they would need to empty it and take off of your car, but not for a $100 part..... get more opinions!
