Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Looking to see what is reasonable charge for replacement for fuel pump and labor as money is tight, very tight. Shop asking 361.00 for pump(new from NAPA and labor is 170.00 Can you help.
I would shop around,. that price is extremely inflated. im sure you can have this repair initiated for a lesser price. i would defiantly search for a second and third price quote. that's a bit high.
Here's the deal. this particular shop is basically replacing the entire assembly, which will cost you 300 dollars tops. this includes the pump,hanger assembly and strainer. the actual hanger assembly is not need. your hanger assembly should be fine. the only thing you will need to replace is the pump and strainer. not the hanger assembly. this shop is charging you for an unnecessary addition to the repair. Only the pump and strainer is needed in this case. the total price for parts should be no higher than $170.00. if its higher than that, you should take you vehicle to a different shop for a better estimate.
Just to clarify. this repair should only consist of the replacement of the Fuel Pump, Strainer and, the fuel pump tank seal. The total price for parts should not exceed above $170.00. Most labor charges are figured at a rate of 50 to 65 dollars an hour(2 hour minumim). this will bring the total repair price to, in my estimate, $297.00. give or take a few dollars.
