About 10 years ago I paid nearly $500 for parts and labor for my car. So it sounds right. If you could do it yourself, you could probably get out of it for about $250.

That probably sounds right. Neighbor across the street had to have the fuel pump replaced on her Taurus wagon - was in the $600 USD range at a local shop. That was about 6 months ago.

About 10-12 years ago ti cost me ~$400 to replace the fuel pump on the '92 Acclaim I had at the time. It was done at a local shop.

Thanks. I have never paid for one before, and I have not established any relationship with this dealer yet.

Mrs is at the point where she thinks the van is not reliable. I keep telling her $600 now and then is better than $600 every month.

"But you put $3000 in to it a few months ago!"

"That was 10 months ago... do the math."

Several factors will affect the price of the replacement pump and the overall cost for this repair. Is the 3.3L V6 designed for Flex - Fuel, ie. E85 ethanol? If yes then the replacement pump has seals designed for the more corrosive nature of ethanol. This will increase the pump cost by $80 - $100.

Does the vehicle have Stow N Go seating where the 2nd and 3rd row seats fold into the floor? If ;yes that increases the cost of the replacement pump. I saw such a price distinction on the site Oreillyauto.com when viewing replacement pumps.

If you are a handy do-it-yourselfer you can avoid a big repair shop markup on the pump and do the repair yourself. If you order parts from rockauto.com you save quite a bit in expense.
