Replacing fuel pump

(1997 Chevrolet Lumina)
in Dickinson, ND on October 20, 2009
I have a 97 Chevy lumina for my son at college, it died and the repair shop we had it towed to wants an arm and leg to replace the fuel pump, does this model of lumina have an access panel to get to the fuel pump in the tank or do you have to drop the tank to get to the pump? also is this a difficult task I realize you need a lift but other then that how hard is it?

The labor rate guide says 2.2 hours to replace the fuel pump. It is in the fuel tank and requires the fuel tank to be removed to replace it ( poor design you would think engineers would take this into consideration when designing a car). No hatch panel!

Hello ,, yes you do need to take the fuel tank out of the vehichle ,, most shops charge roughly 300.00 dollars to do it ,, it call for approx. 1.8 hrs labor and the fuel pump is roughly 100.00 .. you can do it yourself for about 100.00 . and you really dont need a lift , however it makes the job much easier..
