    Bull S___! The labor shouldn't be over $250 and the pump module is not made of GOLD. The pump should be not much more than $400 for a decent pump, can go to $550 with a decent mark up. Shop around, then get a rubber hammer and rap fairly hard on your gas tank while someone tries to start it, then drive it to somebody else.

    Really it can be done for around $600.00. Check your math. It could go higher depending on who you use for the repair.

    "The labor shouldn't be over $250 and the pump module is not made of GOLD. The pump should be not much more than $400 for a decent pump, can go to $550 with a decent mark up" $250+$550=$800 not including fuel filter and fresh gas=$100 ESTIMATE. Can actually be done for less than $600 technically if has a good buddy take care of it for him if he is mechanic....

    I agree with other responses but would add that sometimes a bill has more than 1 item. there are some shops that will drain and dispose of all the gas in the vehicle, therefore will need more gas put back in after the repair. Also, will need fuel filter replacement that doesn't come with fuel pump. Most shops have a markup on parts. I'm not saying it would be $1000...but may be close depending on labor rate, labor rate markup on some systems, quality of part (dealer or not),etc. I suggest making sure you have discussed the bill so that you are 100% clear on what is being covered. If you are comfortable with that shop and trust them, then take that into consideration. They may also have online cojupons you can benefit from. Also ask about "Easy Approval Financing" for all of your auto repair. You can spread the bill out over 6 months or so to make it more affordable!
