The fuel pump on this vehicle will require you to drop the fuel tank. If you are doing this yourself in your garage on the floor, figure roughly 4 hours. If your going to keep the vehicle, I would recommend going with an AC Delco pump. Expensive, but OEM parts will last longer. Although I put a cheepo pump in mine and it lasted 5 years.

Hi Mark, thanks for the info. What was the cheapo pump you put in yours, just to have something to compare to?

Sorry, another quick question here - there seem to be many different makes of the AC Delco pump - which would you recommend for my 2001 GMC astro cargo van (V6)?

This is a similar pump that I installed, but this one is for your vehicle. I ordered the entire sending unit. I figured while I was in there I'd replace the whole thing for the cost difference. http://www.1aauto.com/2000-05-chevy-astro-gmc-safari-electric-fuel-pump-and-sending-unit-module/i/1afpu01099?f=387600&y=2001

Check the following page for AC Delco pumps for your vehicle. They're about the center of the page: http://www.oehq.com/acdelco-search_4330_module_fuel-pump-%28sender-and--pump-module%29.htm

Thanks so much Mark. It's pretty hard to pass by the $68.95 fuel pump for the $226.95 version when you're strapped for cash, but I guess I need to bite the bullet and go for the higher quality part. Thanks again for your advice!
