Thumbs up Replaced the fuel pump on my 99 Blazer....

Just got done replacing the pump only on my 99 Blazer. It is possible to replace just the pump and save yourself a lot of money. My fuel pump decided to go out a few weeks ago, and after taking out the pump/sending unit assembly, I figured I would try and disassemble the unit and see if the pump was easy to get out and if I broke it, I would have to replace it anyway. Everything just snaps together so it was easy to disassemble and get the pump out. The pump is just your standard in-tank fuel pump. Thanks to some research online I was able to find a pump that had the same volume and PSI as the factory pump. Went to Autozone last night, picked up a new pump and strainer for about $90 out the door. Went home put everything back together, primed the system, and she fired right up. I will have to post up the info on the pump and strainer later so if anyone wants to attempt this, they can. Nothing like saving about $225 bucks.

I know everyone is probably gonna bust my ***** for this one, but I bought the Airtex one. NAPA sells their line as well for a bit more. Let's just hope I'm lucky with the Airtex one.

Default Not to Rain on your Parade

In the last 5 years I have replaced the pump twice. First was and Airtex. It died 18-24 months later, so I tried another aftermarket brand. The sender died within 8 months on the second replacement. For the last year or two I have been having my wife fill-up every Friday, (its her low milage car). She is squaking about it so I am about to bite the bullet & replace it with an AC Delco from www.Rockauto.com for about $270.

I hope you have a better experience then I did.

Well hopefully I will have good luck. Luckily the guy that had the Blazer before me made an access hole above the tank so I didn't have to drop the tank. It's actually pretty easy to replace just the pump. I believe the Delco # is a EP381.

Why not Delphi... it's 20 bucks cheaper.. and more than likely the same damn part.

Maybe if Delphi starts getting aftermarket sales they'll give their office and internal sales retirees some of their pensions they depended on.
How would YOU like it if you were GM salaried for over 20 years and the ****ing unions cut you off at the knees!
