Question about 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
How difficult is the process. I have experience, but need advice.
Gotta drain that tank first, take your time and be smart about it. The book says to use a hand operated pump connected to the pressure return line at the tank; but we all know you're going to siphon it. Just don't use a vinyl tube, it holds and conducts static electricity, use rubber fuel hose. Disconnect, drain & drop. Replace the pump assembly and reverse the procedure. Look for upwards of 500-1100 dollars from garages/dealers. The part itself is just under $300. Reliable used parts are available at the yard or internet for about $50 or less.

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. You need to have the means to support the fuel tank when you remove the mount straps so you can lower it far enough to get to the fuel pump which installs in the top of the tank. Hopefully it's not full of gas!
