Why is after market fuel pump different than the part in my 2007 chevy cobalt lt?

Asked by Nov 03, 2016 at 05:49 PM about the 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can't seem to find the pump that is currently in my car. The fuel pump that is
suppose to fit EXACTLY to my car is not the pump that is currently in my car
and I would simply like to know can this piece be removed and can the
aftermarket piece that is called for be installed!?

If the electrical and fuel connections fit and the pump fits in the tank then you should be good to go even if there are small differences. It it won't fit then you have the wrong pump.

Did you ever find out why the pump is different. I’m having the Same problem trying to figure out why the Fuel pump is different than the one that it calls for.

xYour Cobalt is probably a Partial Zero Emmisions Vehicle (PZEV) and is completely different than the replacements you have been seeing. I found that an AC Delco GF828 was the correct kit for my 2008 Cobalt LT. It has a seperate fuel filter assembly, a fuel filter assembly (with strainer), a Orifice-Fuel Reservoir Pump (with strainer) and a new o-ring seal for the fuel pump flange. These all fit into a plastic box inside the tank. The box has a hinged lid and you need to open it to install the pump and strainer. The fllter in the box is easy to change and the Orifice-Fuel Reservoir Pump (with strainer) just hangs on the side of the box.

The third line of my previous answer should read " It has a seperate fuel filter assembly, a fuel PUMP assembly (with strainer), a Orifice-Fuel Reservoir Pump (with strainer) and a new o-ring seal for the fuel pump flange.

perhaps different because original one was recalled
