How Much Does Labor Cost For a Fuel Pump Repair?


Before we get to the answer this question you have to think about your car first. Odds are your car has just one fuel pump, some cars and trucks have two. Most of the cars with one have their fuel pumps inside the gas tank. If you’re lucky yours will be accessible from the trunk. If you’re not so lucky your fuel pump repair will consist of fully removing the fuel tank before accessing and replacing the fuel pump. In addition, fuel pump replacement costs will vary depending on where you get your car worked on.


Fuel pump costs for labor will vary depending on your vehicle and how easily accessible your fuel pump is. Some cars that have an opening to get to it from the trunk or back seat will take much less time than from a car that needs take off parts to get to the fuel tank and then remove it to get to the fuel pump.


Where you take your car to get serviced will also change the fuel pump repair cost, even between the exact same cars. Take it to a dealership and it will more than likely cost you more than taking it to a specialist or an independent repair shop.Before buying a new fuel pump read or our Know the Signs: Symptoms of a bad Fuel Pump.


This guide will give you a basic idea of what different cars require and how different labor times can be. Having a ballpark figure will allow you to give you an idea whether it will cost you $250 or $1000.

Why do labor times vary so much?


Labor times vary because not all cars are created equally. Some have easy access to the fuel pump and some don’t. Some cars are built with reparability in mind and some aren’t. But the best way to know how long it will take to for your fuel pump repair, is to bring your car to your mechanic and get a quote. Once you have that number in mind, we recommend going to a few other mechanics to see if the prices are comparable.


If you’ve ever talked to more than one person about how much it cost for their car to get a similar part replaced you would inevitably see that prices vary. Unless you’re talking to people with the same year, make, and model you will see fuel pump replacement costs vary person to person.


Luckily this guide will give you better information that you can go to your mechanic with. You’ll be armed and ready to know if your mechanic is giving you a fair price on your fuel pump repair.
