I RECENTLY LOOKED UP (FOR A FRIEND) 2 PUMPS AT AUTOZONE/ ADVANCE AUTO PARTS/ ROCK AUTO (ONLINE)

HIS TRUCK IS LISTED BELOW - NOT ENOUGH INFO TO LOOK YOURS UP

2001 DODGE RAM 2500 DIESEL "VIN 7" 5.9 LITER (INLINE 6 CYL) FUEL PUMPS (THERE ARE 2, AN INJECTION PUMP AND A LIFT PUMP IN THE TANK)

THE LIFT PUMP STARTED AT $162 AND INCREASED WITH DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS THESE WERE NEW PUMPS

THE INJECTION PUMP WAS $1200.00 ON UP WITH DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS. ALL WERE REMANUFACTURED PUMPS

THIS WAS THE PRICES OF THE PUMPS BY THEMSELVES - NO LABOR WAS ADDED

We don't get involved with prices here because there's too many variables. In this case you didn't say if this is just a new pump and motor getting transplanted into the assembly, or if it's the whole assembly. Just the pump and motor is less expensive but takes more time to install. Mine for my '88 Grand Caravan recently cost me $77.00. The complete assembly costs a lot more but takes less time to install.

Regardless, if you're paying a shop to replace the pump, something is wrong with that price. Parts and labor should come to more than what you listed, but you didn't say if that price includes labor. You also didn't say if the pickup screen is included or not. They're very inexpensive and should be replaced to insure the quality of the repair. You need to provide those details so we can give you a better answer.

Thanks to all the insurances, taxes, and government regulations, shops have to charge around $100.00 per hour for labor, and I wonder sometimes how they can stay in business, but that means they're expecting this job to take about an hour and a half. That's about right. You can expect it to actually take longer unless they put two people on the job, but most shops go according to a flat rate manual, so they all quote you and charge the same number of hours for the same job on the same vehicle.
