First of all thank you very much for your donation. Did you just want to replace the fuel pump by itself?Or did you want to replace the whole module which include's the line's plastic housing and fuel sending unit?

I don't know if I need anything other than the pump itself-I haven't had it identified yet but I wanted to get a ballpark amount --there's a huge difference in price between some parts places here so I wanted to find out what is a realisti dollar amt to shop around for.

Labor if you had it replaced is 2.0hr's. Just the pump for the part is 110 which I found on www. Oreillyauto. Com auto zone want's 155 for the same pump but they match price's. If you get just the pump you will have to take apart the fuel pump module and replace just the pump and splice in the wire's to the new pump.I replaced the exact same pump on a 1992 saturn sl1 it wasn't too bad it was my first time replacing just the pump. At the dealer we always only had the whole fuel pump module to put in. If you get the whole module it will come with the module line's and fuel pump you have use your old sending unit. The whole module is 192. You said you hadn't identified it yet?Do you mean you don't know if you need a fuel pump?If that's the case let's figure out if you need that or something else. What's your car doing?

City driving/lots stop lights, etc makes the car sound like it's going to die-RPM drops, sputters, and at the same time, the temp gets up to approaching the red zone. If I switch to driving without alot of stopping and idling, then the temp drops, and the car's RPM goes up to normal. The car is also difficult to start at the beginning of the day, but fine later, doing multiple restarts. I've already replaced the fan, which was not working and had a coolant flush done. I also know that the coolant level is not low.

If your having trouble starting it in the morning then I would suspect you have a bad coolant temp sensor. You have two sensor's screwed into your head the top one run's the gauge it has one green wire going to it. The bottom one has two wire's a yellow one and a black one. That one tells the computer what temp the engine is and also turn's the fan on. There only 10 and they go bad a lot make sure you get a brass tipped one the plastic tipped one's crack. Also inspect the connector going to it if it's corroded they usually turn green or blue when they do that. If it's corroded then you will have to replace the connector too. Make sure the engine is cold when you change it you will loose coolant. Let me know what you find.
