Ha! Doesn't surprise me. I siphoned the gas out of my '88 Bronco's tank before dropping it for a swap of the fuel pump. I THOUGHT it was mostly empty. As soon as I got the bolts out I was laying on the ground with a 33 gallon gas tank that seemed half full sitting on me. It was...fun.

But I think $200 for a new pump isn't so bad. I think I paid about $350 for a new pump and tank for my Bronco. The tank wasn't all too expensive, either. Maybe $65.

henryd1981 I replaced my cabin air filter yesterday with a Carquest brand filter. Still mystified as to why it's located in such an awkward place. It was easier to changed in my old Elantra.

I'll have to change the one on my mother's 2012 Nissan Rogue soon. Apparently, it's in a similar location to the Focus, but this time, it's on the driver's side.

There is an old mechanic's trick that will sometimes get an in tank fuel pump working again. I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee that I had not driven in a while and the electric pump was stuck and inoperative. A couple of blows to the fuel tank with a rubber mallet and the pump started singing. Never failed again. I thought I was going to have to drop the tank so I got lucky.

Some cars have access ports under the back seat to get at the in tank pump without having to drop the tank. We are not so lucky with the MK3 so yes, it is an expensive repair.

I would like to see the look on the service writer's face when you ask him if they installed your new fuel filter as part of the $179 special and then show him a picture of the in tank fuel pump with integrated fuel filter...

"Do you need to keep my car a little longer to complete the rest of the work you advertised in your special?"

Juicedz ^.....I cringe at the thought of a labor quote on something like that!

Indeed.... fuel filter change is a scam... it's integrated with the fuel pump!



Cost alone of this unit is close to 200$ (or more depending of your dealer) + expensive labor
