Fuel pump

I am going to be removing my fuel pump soon. If you were replacing your pump would you go to ford and buy a ford fuel pump, or go to napa, and probably get one made in China? Thanks for any input you may have. Stan

Fuel pump

Aftermarket will be just fine. I have installed them with no problems. I would replace as an assembly verses just the pump. Ethanol plays havoc on the sending units. Good luck and if you have any questions shoot me a pm.

I got your PM. The tank is 2/3 full. I can't get a hose down the filler tube. I have some sort of vent toward the back of the tank. I am going to lower the tank enough to get that vent open. then I can get a hose in the top to remove the gas. I have a heavy duty floor jack under the tank supported by a 2x12 to lower the tank. I can tell there is a lot of weight in the tank. I am going to remove the complete tank. Looks like the only problem is getting the filler hose loose. I am also considering putting a drain valve on the bottom of the tank. It will be high enough as not to be knocked off. Not in a hurry, so I should be ok. Stan

Go to Summit Racing or Jegs for the pump.. Better quality and better service from them.. (Internet & phone only ordering)

I got my tank out. about half way through the process, I thought at 71, I am too old to be doing this. The most trouble I had was the fittings. I was limited in the space I had to work in. I fought every fitting all the way off. I decided to go with a ford complete unit. I found one in another state for 338.00, 100.00 less than my ford dealer in Ca. Plus no shipping. It should arrive the first of the week. I always like to find out why something failed. What I found after I cut my pump open. There was some white deposit on the pump impeller, causing it not to turn. So what is that about? Stan

Amazing how good prices are in the states. I just had the fuel pump changed on my Ford Expedition. Canadian Tire wanted $873 for the part, didn't even bother asking the dealer. Rock Auto had the same part and brand for just over $400.

Ending up getting the warranty to cover it but if I did it myself I would have been taking a trip south of the border to get the part.

Ethanol Ethanol that is slowly killing fuel pumps and engines all over America. Untreated fuel is junk inside of 60 days. Glad you found a fuel pump and got it out.
