Car = 1999 Sunfire 2.4 Litre
Ok Im having a gas leak, had it up on the hoist and a mechanic is
telling its coming from my fuel pump assembly where everything goes
into the tank in the very back. My question is as to avoid replacing
the whole fuel pump assembly as the pump is working fine as car is
getting gas and working no problems, and I dont really want to go spend
500.00 + Canadian for a new pump if I dont have too. Is there a way
to maybe check or fix lines or gaskets or anything ? or do I have to
get a whole new fuel pump.
go get a second opinion. if i remember correctly,. the lines going to
the sending unit are replacable and the sending unit lines going into
the tank are probably plastic.
if your fuel pump comes as a pump/sender module, you have to replace
all of it, but the price would be more like 600. just in parts.
if the two come seperate, you can change the sender only,HOWEVER, you
would be wasting your time re installing a 7 year old pump
go get it checked elsewhere....try to stay away from shops where the
techs work flat rate or on commission only, like dealerships or
Canadian tire type places...they are on the upsell...
