how much $$ to replace fuel pump

I was just wondering how much it should cost to change the mechanical fuel pump. i brought my truck int o the shop to get a second opinion on what was going on. i get there and he is pulling out the lift fuel pump. I tell him i just wanted u to give me a second opinion on the problem not start pulling parts off. so $690 later i have a new fuel pump which i still dont think was the main problem. any thouhgts. i looked up the price for the pump so pump wasnt the cost.

All the mechanical lift pumps are made by Carter. 120.00 at Autozone. I am on my third one due to running bio-diesel B100. Takes me about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to change it. You do not have to remove the turbo to change it. I think you got hosed.

on the OBS 7.3L, what kills you is the labor to remove the turbo. if you don't remove it, it doesn't take much to replace.

Hopefully he checked your headlight fluid and balanced your windshield wipers for that much money

well the wipers where way passed due and he told me i didnt have headlamp fluid i have a really expensive solid state anti-matter. He alos really hooked me up because he is specially trained in Flux Capacitor rebuild because u cant buy them anymore. i have to go back next week so he can finish the rebuild on the capacitor and it is only going to be $75,000 and a new one is atleast twice that.

About 3 years ago, My Dad had Ford change his fuel pump. IIRC It was right around $700.

good night! i need to get into replacing OBS fuel pumps!

pumps are like $120 at an auto store or online.

fyi, in the future, for that price, you can diy yourself an electric pump setup and be much happier. just plan ahead as those of us who need our truck daily will need to plan the down time.
