Pontiac Sunfire Fuel Pump Replacement

A. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and the tank needs to come out to replace the pump. Not a do-it-yourself job if you ask me. There are just too many things to go wrong trying to pull a tank on your back in a driveway.

Also the "quick connect" fittings can sometimes be a pain for someone who doesn't know how to get them apart and I've seen a couple of cars towed in with messed up fittings and they had to buy new lines all the way to the engine.
