Yes it is. Part will be around $250- at least thru Autozone in my area. It's in fuel tank but check your model you may have access door under back seat or in trunk ? If not tank will have to be dropped down to fix. You may just want to deal with problem till fuel pump gives out lol

LOL!!! Thanks a lot. YOu may be right. I just need to keep it full or just top it off when it gets to half. Thanks again.

Thanks! You may be right about that. But if gas get's any higher, it will sit until I really need to drive it.
